Sudden Sore Throat No Fever
Small pebble-like bump behind ear. Area around back of ear is hot, red and swollen. Sudden onset symp. Red, sore throat. No fever; no break in skin.?
Lymphadenopathy: Likely an inner or external ear infection that has stimulated a posterior auricular lymph node to swell.
Likely a virus: It is likely caused by a virus. Antibiotics are of no help in this situation, as they cannot treat viral infections. Use ibuprofen, tylenol, (acetaminophen) chloraseptic spray, etc for pain relief. If still not better, your doctor can prescribe some other things to help the sore throat pain.
Doctor can evaluate: Throat pain can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees a doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to see about antibiotics). Having chills may mean one's body is trying to create a fever.
Took care of sick kids last week w viral sore throat. I got little sore throat no fever. Now hubby is sick with same symptoms as kids. Am I at risk?
Virus exposure: Greetings. It sounds like you may have been the carrier of the virus from the sick kids into your home to your family. This is the common spread of a viral infection. It looks like you had a mild case and your husband developed more symptoms. Are you more at risk, that's hard to say with this limited information. Things that may play a role would be your overall health, medications, sleep. ......
Sore throat: Another throat infection caused by a different virus, infectious mononucleosis, or even another strep infection may be the cause of this sore throat. Unless it resolves within a day or so, another evaluation by your physician will be necessary and the appropriate tests and treatment will be obtained.See 1 more doctor answer
You: You may be dealing with a bacterial infection (i.e. Strep throat). This requires antibiotic therapy, however you will need to see a doctor for testing in order to determine if this is the cause. In the meantime try over the counter Ibuprofen or motrin. Also try gargling with warm salt water. I hope you are better soon.

Possibilities...: Possible causes of your symptoms include post-nasal drip leading to sore throat and bronchospasm leading to cough. This may be due to a viral infection, including viral bronchitis. Since this is likely a viral infection, antibiotics would be ineffective. If there is no improvement over the next week, or if symptoms worsen, see your doctor. If you smoke, you need to quit asap!
