It is possible you have a strep strain which is resistant to antibiotics. Ask the doctor whether it is advisable to take a swab and have it tested for that, and for which antibiotic is best to treat it.

Sounds like you're allergic to that antibiotic or your doctor didn't give you enough to kill the bug. Ask your doctor what he thinks.

I have had sore throat, now the burning pain in my gland is so bad?


fixya site is not a medical forum
see your doctor for a proper diagnosis
in the mean time go to a chemist/pharmacist and get a small bottle of Benadine throat gargle and follow the directions for the mixture to gargle
It is a very effective germ/bacteria destroyer in the throat when used as directed
do not swallow the mixture

Bitten by paper wasp on my thumb,now I have soreness under my arm. Do I need to go to a doctor


The wasp sting has probably affected your lymph nodes. If you have NO other symptoms such as hives, a rash, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, it should abate soon. You should initially go to a pharmacy and ask for a suitable antihistamine.

If the pain increases, or does not subside in a day or 2, or you notice any other symptoms at all, go immediately to a doctor or emergency.

Strep Throat Symptoms


Patient CommentsRead 37 CommentsShare Your Story
In those individuals who develop strep throat, the symptoms usually begin between 1 to 4 days after initially acquiring the infection (incubation period). The symptoms can range from mild to severe. The sore throat associated with strep throat is usually described as starting rather suddenly, and the tonsils and the back of the throat may appear red and swollen. Swallowing is usually painful, and thus some individuals may have varying degrees of dehydrationdue to lack of adequate fluid intake.
Often times, however, it can be difficult for healthcare professionals to diagnose strep throat based on symptoms alone, as strep throat and a sore throat due to a viral infection can often have similar overlapping symptoms. However, the presence and absence of certain symptoms can make strep throat more likely.
In general, the common signs and symptoms of strep throat include the following:
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Red and swollwen/inflamed tonsillitis)
  • Swollen and tender lymph nodes on the sides of the upper neck (cervical lymphadenopathy)
  • White patches or spots on the tonsils (tonsillar exudate)
Individuals with strep throat can experience other associated signs and symptoms as well, which may include any of the following:
Generally speaking, though the presence of runny nose, cough, hoarseness, eye redness, muscle aches, ulcers in the mouth, and diarrheamake a viral infection more likely, the possibility of strep throat must still be considered by the health care professional. As previously mentioned, strep throat is most common between 5 to 15 years of age, though it can affect individuals of almost any age. Consequently, strep throat can sometimes manifest differently depending on the age of the affected individual, and special considerations must therefore be taken into account.
  • Strep throat in infants: Strep throat in this age group is uncommon. Infants may feed less and appear irritable and fussy. A low-grade fever and nasal discharge may be present as well.
  • Strep throat in children: Children will often complain of sore throat and painful swallowing. They also may eat less and complain of abdominal pain.
  • Strep throat in older children and teenagers: Strep throat in this age group can be extremely uncomfortable, with individuals often complaining of a severe sore throat. The fever can be high and they may be ill-appearing.
  • Strep throat in adults: Typically adults have milder symptoms and they may complain only of a mild sore throat. However, more severe symptoms are still possible in adults.
Occasionally, some people develop bad breath (stinky tonsils) when tonsilloliths (whitish deposits on and in tonsils) develop. These deposits are often dislodged when the patient coughs, but in some individuals food particles get trapped and bacteria attack the food particles and produce the bad odor. Removal of these deposits may be done by a qualified healthcare professional. Continue Reading

If you haven\'t had chicken pox as a child then adults certainly can contract it. The greater risk in adults is though is that the virus responsible for chicken pox can also cause shingles. This is a much more serious illness.



Measles is also possible to contract as an adult.



Did you have the MMR vaccine? If so, then it is unlikely that you have contracted either measles or chicken pox.



Symptoms of measles generally appear within 14 days of exposure to the virus. Symptoms include:




People with chickenpox have the following symptoms before the rash appears:



  • Fever


  • Headache


  • Stomach ache


The chickenpox rash occurs about 10 to 21 days after coming into contact with someone who had the disease. The average patient develops 250 to 500 small, itchy, fluid-filled blisters over red spots on the skin.
