Sore throat, short breath and cough and phlegm. Using asthalin inhaler, but doesn't work. Whats wrong with me?

Allergies/Asthma. Nasal allergies can cause sore throat and phlegm, and can worsen bouts of asthma. See your physician for adjustments to your medications and to make sure you don't have bronchitis. Drink more non-caffeinated fluids and do some warm salt water gargling.

I have a sore throat and cough followed by blister- looking lumps and red spots on tongue, tonsil stones and yellow patches around tonsils and throat.

Sounds infectious. With your symptoms you describe, you should be evaluated by a health care provider to determine if you have an infection that may require prescription medication. Good luck.

Fever 101.3, vomiting, sore throat, productive cough. Saw pcp today. Started on avelox. Now I have white pockets on tonsils, if strep will avelox help?

Strep avalox. Avelox has active ingredients of Moxifloxacin hydrochloride. It is used in sinusitis, infection, pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchial infection. Common side effects of Avelox include rashes, anaphylaxis, breathing difficulty, dizziness, nausea. It should help but occasionally there are resistant germs.
Probably yes. Avelox probably will take care of the strep infection. Remeber white pockets do not necessarily mean you have have strep. If viral, the antibiotic will not help cure the infection.

Yes. Penicillin or Amoxicillin work well against strep throat, and are the usual choices. Avelox will work against strep too.
Maybe. The strep that infects the throat is usually strep pyogenes and is susceptible to avelox. (meaning Avelox will kill the germ, usually) in some cases their is resistance to this antibiotic so one would still need to follow up with their doctor.
