My throat is hurting very bad, almost like a bruise, like someone punched me inside my throat. It burns as well like its on fire.

My throat is hurting very bad, almost like a bruise, like someone punched me inside my throat. It burns as well like its on fire.

Infection: Pharyngitis, a throat inflammation, is most commonly due to a viral infection which usually resolves without any specific treatment within a week. If the sore throat worsens instead of gradually improving, a throat culture to check for strep is recommended as this would be treated with antibiotics. Gargle with warm salt water, suck on lozenges and take Tylenol (acetaminophen) in the meantime.

Risk. Risk: Your bulimia needs treatment for many reasons, including the misery that underlies and drives it. One of the reasons is the risk of serious esophageal damage from exposure to the hydrochloric acid in your stomach, when you vomit.

I went to the doctors because the side of my throat was very, very red. I have no symptoms. No pain but my throat till this day is fire red, why?

I went to the doctors because the side of my throat was very, very red. I have no symptoms. No pain but my throat till this day is fire red, why?

Unsure: Your query got me interested in knowing what is causing this. It is strange as all causes of pharyngitis (viral, or bacterial) will cause sore throat in addition of redness. You mentioned that you already have seen MDs and I assume that you did not improve on antibiotics. It seems that further history and examination are required before anyone can form an opinion!

We have a forest fire in town and it feels like there is something stuck in my throat (there's not). I have asthma. What can I do until the fires gone?

We have a forest fire in town and it feels like there is something stuck in my throat (there's not). I have asthma. What can I do until the fires gone?

Go see your doctor: We're got a forest fire raging close to vegas & many of our asthma & emphysema patients are coming in short of breath asking for more of their rescue inhalers which we refer to as short-acting beta agonists (saba). Or you might ask for a higher dose laba (long-acting beta agonist and/or higher dose inhaled corticosteroid). Bottom line, lots of options, so go see your family doc.

Dry coughing fr about 2wks and when I cough really hard for about 10-15sec I think I taste blood in my throat & my chest feel like on fire what's wrng?

Bronchitis: There are a number of reasons that you could still be coughing after two weeks and from all the coughing you may have some bleeding from some small blood vessels that have broken. Some bacteria can also give a metallic taste and you may now have a secondary bacterial infection causing your cough. I think it may be time to see your physician to get a better answer and treatment.

Could I have strep? My throat has been itchy dry and feels like it is on fire for three days. My lice omes and goes. Nothing is helping... Ugh

Could be: Your symptoms certainly appear to be consistent with a throat infection, be it viral or bacterial. As it is on the 3rd day, your throat is on fire, and your voice is coming and going, you should go see a dr. For an eval and testing. Good luck.

I feel as if my stomach is on fire right in center bout 2" below ribs feels like a tight knot and bit rawness in throat

Heartburn: Sounds like you are describing heartburn which happens when acid from the stomach is able to get up into the esophagus causing discomfort like you are having. Diet among other things may play a role and certain medications may help.

What else can I do to take the pain away from a hiatus hernia? I always feel lile my chest and throat is on fire.

What else can I do to take the pain away from a hiatus hernia? I always feel lile my chest and throat is on fire.

Acid Reflux: The sensation of "fire" is due to acid reflux with or without the hernia. To improve that sensation, take anti-reflux or antacid medications many of which are OTC. Obesity, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, grease, mint etc. Make the reflux worse. Make sure you have an actual confirmed medical diagnosis of hiatal hernia and acid reflux before you start treatment.

My throat is burning like it's on fire and hurts to swallow. I took my temperature but it's normal at 97.9. What is causing this burning?

Many possibilities: There is a wide differential diagnosis for these symptoms. Viral pharyngitis would be at the top of my list. It may be something bacterial, though. If symptoms persist, head to your doctor for an examination.
