My wife is right at 3 months pregnant and is stopped up sore allover soar throat ache. Is there anything she can take?
Viral infection. Acetominophen benign at three month maintain hydration and time.
I have a bad sore throat can I take my amoxicillin with theraflu because it seems the amoxicillin isn't taking the soreness away from my throat?
See doctor. If the soreness is not going away You need to see a doctor. You can take theraflu with amoxicillin.
You can. Keep in mind. Most likely you have a viral illness and this is why the amoxicillin does not work. Try more fluids both hot and cold and rest Tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort.
Perhaps none. The only sore throat for which antibiotics are needed is strep. This can be diagnosed easily by your pcp and is treated with penicillin which should have no negative effects on your baby.
NEEDS TO BE CHECKED. Fever with sore throat needs to be checked. It may be strep throat which requires full course of antibiotics, or it may be due to aviral infection you can gargle with warm saline or take tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for pain or such lozences like cepacol or chloraseptic spray.
Hey ive been having a sore throat for the past 6 days. Now the soreness is on the top of my mouth. What can it be?
Sore throat. Spots on the soft palate that turn into blister and then pop open to form ulcers are not the usual causes of sore throat (which affects the tonsils). At this time of the year, they are often caused by viruses (Enteroviruses). They can be very painful and usually affects children. Rarely they can be due to other things: gonorrhea, syphilis, etc.
Virus. In people less than 45 who are non-smokers, the vastly most common cause for sore throat +/- oral pain is a self-limiting infection caused by a virus. Sometimes tonsillitis can be caused by a bacteria that requires an antibiotic - especially if you are aboriginal/Torres Strait Is/Maori/Pacific Is (because of risk for developing Rheumatic Fever).
I woke up with a sore throat. It has since become full body soreness and it hurts to swallow a bit. It hurts when I press against my glands in my th?
Probable virus. But to be sure, get a physician to look at your throat and feel those lymph nodes and probably due a rapid strep test to make sure you do not have grp a beta strep throat.
Streph throat test. If you have a significantly sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a streph throat test. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. A mixture of chamomile tea with honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.
Feel very weak, had sore throat on saturday, low energy sunday but no throat soreness, sinus congestion monday but not as much today tuesday.?
Flu like syndrome. These symptoms are consistent with an upper respiratory tract infection caused by a virus. This is usually self-limited and your immune system should knock this out in 7-10 days. An antibiotic is usually not indicated. Treat symptomatically with fluids, decongestant and rest. If symptoms get worse after 5 days or do not resolve in 10 days, see a physician.
I seem to have multiple symptoms including fever, soreness, sinus blockage, and sore throat. Last night I also had severe night sweat. Diagnosis?
Doctor Visit. You need to see a doctor for a throat swab to see if you have strep throat, mono or something else. Could also be seasonal allergies kicking into gear.
Cannot diagnose. Based on the things you have said, this is probably a self-limiting illness, but would need far more history, physical exam and perhaps some lab tests to tell you exactly what is going on. If the night sweats keep up, write down all times and symptoms and take them with you to see your pcp and get evaluated. Good luck and feel better soon.
