I have a painful sore throat that started last night and the next morning  i spat out a orange-yellowish booger is that normal?

Of course not: If it were normal you would not be asking the question. When you have a respiratory tract infection the inflammatory materials may pile up and need to be coughed out. This coughed up material contains secretions, damaged tissue, bacteria or virus and other materials you may have breathed in. It is normal in the sense that that is what happens, . ...Read more

I have a sore throat for four days now i don't feel sick it feels like i may have a  scratch in there.  I been drinking  hot tea, orange juice.

Nothing Strong: Tea is ok, however orange juice is too irritating on the tissue. Use something that is more gengle to the tissue. Also you can do the usual way is to take liquid medicine or cough drops designed for the throat. The old way is to gargle with peroxide, the new way is to gargle with Chlorhexidine gluconate (brand name = Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) and needs an rx from your physician or dentist). ...Read more

I have orange bumps at the back of my throat along with a sore throat and my right tonsil is swollen and under my chin feels very swollen any ideas?

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a 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 the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

Sore throat, no other symptoms besides pressure in my head after I wake up. What are usually the "worst" days of a cold?

Sore throat, no other symptoms besides pressure in my head after I wake up. What are usually the "worst" days of a cold?

Days 2,3,4: Headache and throat symptoms can be from flu/cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc., except that allergies usually don't cause a fever. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of a strep throat infection. Doctors also have a 15-minute test for Flu A and Flu B. ...Read more

Sore throat for 2weeks and cough but my head and cheeks feels as if its hot but if i touch my face or take temp its all fine??

Sore throat: If you have a sore throat and you do not have a fever you likely have post nasal drip. I would get the nasal steroid spray like nasal cort . Two sprays each nostril with the head pointed down to the ground. Give it a few days to get the full results of the meds. The sore throat is likely to post nasal drip. If you start to cough color: yellow or brown you may need an antibiotic good luck ...Read more
