I have drainage down the back of my throat, is it allergies or sinus?

Either...or both: Not enough information to make a diagnosis but i suspect some friends and relatives are trying. Here's a clue: allergic noses itch & sneeze while coughing is a sign of sinusitis. Watery runny nose? Think allergy. Thick goopy stuff? Sinusitis. Allergic rhinitis predisposes to sinusitis. Time to see your doctor? ...Read more

My son had a fever a few days ago and now has sores on his throat. Can it be from sinus drainage if the fever is gone? Or is it the dreaded strep?

Coxsackie virus: Small ulcers on the back of the throat (retropharynx) suggest the possibility of infection with coxsackie virus (herpangina), but without seeing these it is impossible to be sure. It may also be other conditions, but not likely to be strep. The best way to be sure is to visit the doctor and get tested. ...Read more
