How long is viral sore throat contagious to others?

How long is viral sore throat contagious to others?

1 to 2 weeks: A viral pharyngitis lasts an average of one to two weeks, I believe the virus may be viable during that time and therefore, you should not cough or get close to children or adults who are healthy.

How long do you think is a viral sore throat contagious?

How long do you think is a viral sore throat contagious?

Cheer up: You were probably most contagious just before you got sick, so the virus could spread before you went to bed. If you have a fever, wait until it's normal for 24 hours. Otherwise, when you feel better your body has won, made antibodies, and you shouldn't be able to pass it on. There is no firm rule since lots of viruses cause sore throats. ...Read more

2-3 days before my period I am ill with sore throat and a cold? Why is this and what can I do to improve my health?

31 F - my scalp is feeling sore and tender. I am currently on my period and have recently had a sore throat and cough?

31 F - my scalp is feeling sore and tender. I am currently on my period and have recently had a sore throat and cough?

Unrelated: These symptoms appear to be independent of each other. Have someone check your scalp skin to see if there is any inflammation or infection. You seem to have an upper respiratory viral infection but as long as you aren't febrile or producing a lot of discolored sputum, it should resolve without any specific treatment except gargling, lozenges and robitussin (guaifenesin) cough syrup. ...Read more

I have a cold. I'm coughing and I have a sore throat. Could that be the reason why I'm really tired? Also my period is 3 days away.

I have a cold. I'm coughing and I have a sore throat. Could that be the reason why I'm really tired? Also my period is 3 days away.

Fatigue: Yes. Any viral illness has the potential to make you feel tired, along with dozens of other possibilities, not the least of which is depression. This is the time of year that people are getting sick of winter (although perhaps not in houston) and having seasonal depression. If this does not clear up when your cold ends, see a doctor. Best. ...Read more

I have my period now after 3 mos, but im having fever, pain on my upper and lower back. I'm having also sore throat. Is symptom related to my period?

Coincidental: Does not sound like these symptoms are anything that would be related to your period. You could have a urinary tract infection, but that too would be independent of you being on your period. Since you have fever, i'd get tested for influenza and possibly for UTI - see your doc. ...Read more

For the past 3-4 months, I've gotten cold like symptoms 2-3 days before my period (sore throat, congestion, fatigue, aches) why does this happen?

Hormonal imbalance: Right before your cycle begins your Progesterone (pro) levels drop, this drop in pro creates a state of relative excess of estrogen (e2). High e2 levels stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system (pns) excess pns stimulation causes the symptoms of sore throat, congestion....
You may benefit from getting your pro levels and e2 levels checked to see if they are imbalanced. ...Read more

Every month, a couple of days before my period I get a sore throat, runny nose/sneezing & coughing. I feel really sick. What could this be from?

High odds previous: Emotional experiences, understandings, events associated with being a women, having periods, sexual issues, etc., from earlier times in life. Primary controls of our behavior (s) are always determined by past history/experiences, beliefs & Déjà vu anticipation/preparation for these, or similar events, happening again.

Can sore throat, metal taste be preg symptoms? LMP 19/10, had sex 01/11 & 09/11 unprotected. Light period pain/backache on/off. Twinges in ovary.

No: No;however unprotected sexual intercourse will definitely lead to pregnancy. Here's an idea: go shopping with sexual partner and pick up a variety of condoms PLUS spermicidal jelly, foam, inserts, or sponge. Additionally, it is probably time to see a GYN for a pelvic exam and definitive oral contraceptive pills. ...Read more

If I am very sick (102.1 fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, slight body aches) can that delay my period at all?

Possibly: Yes there are reports that have shown that a fever can delay ovulation and then subsequently delay menstrual bleeds that occur after a delayed ovulation. So you might not be that regular this month. But this does not occur in everyone the same way. Your fever might not have any effect on your menstrual period. ...Read more
