I am congested. Swore throat. Swollen glands in neck and groin hurts to swollow went to the doctor last week was percribed amoxicillen for pherengitis

Acute Pharyngitis: Your symptoms may be due to a bacterial or a viral infection. Bacterial infectinos of the tonsils or the throat lining are typically caused by streptococcal bacteria which respond well to Amoxicillin or Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid if there is no response. However, it is imperative that a viral infection like infectious mononucleosis is considered and tested for as well, consult with your md. ...Read more

Hsv1+ and hsv2- for blood antibodies. Had cold sores before. Can I also get genital hsv 1 if exposed? Having swollen glands in groin. Itchy and tingle

Hsv1+ and hsv2- for blood antibodies. Had cold sores before. Can I also get genital hsv 1 if exposed? Having swollen glands in groin. Itchy and tingle

No: If a person has antibodies to HSV1 (has immunity), she should not get new HSV1 infections in places that she did not get HSV1 sores in the past. New herpes lesions on the genitals would be presumed HSV2 (if the HSV2 antibodies turned positive on the blood tests after the new genital herpes sores). Life can surprise you sometimes. Maybe HSV1 was in the genitals in the past but wasn't noticeable. ...Read more

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Unlikely: I would see a doctor about the swollen glands and lightheadedness. Unlikely related to hh. Hiatal hernia and acid reflux could cause the esophagus to spasm or even develop scar tissue and narrowing. This would cause the feeling of food sticking or catching. I would see your doctor about getting a test to check your esophagus. If not already taking acid medication twice a day, recommend doing so. ...Read more

I had oral sex then a week later swollen glands and a sore throat came, I'm 19 yr female what could this be?

I had oral sex then a week later swollen glands and a sore throat came, I'm 19 yr female what could this be?

Maybe strep, flu, etc.: One should be sure to tell the doctor exactly what kind of oral sex is going on. Sore throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it is more likely allergies or irritation. There are rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics. ...Read more

I am 24 year old female my throat is very tight for the last 2 weeks along with shortness of breath? And swollen glands.

See a doctor ASAP: There are some illnesses that require immediate attention, and tightness in the throat and shortness of breath are both on the list, because if you can't breathe or your airway is blocked it is lethal. Since you have had this for 2 wks, your airway is obviously still ok, but that can change quickly. Go to an urgent care or ER if you can't get in to your regular doctor right away. ...Read more

How can I relieve pain from swollen glands?

How can I relieve pain from swollen glands?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
