Hello,

Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic

This is Dr. Priyanka tiwari answering your query .

Read your query , understand your concern as you have mucus in throat this can be due to Cold l flu , Allergies ,sinus infection , Drug induced , changing weather , certain foods like spicy food , or reflux of gastric acid . For this I will suggest you to Do XXXXXXX warm saline gargle two - three times a day, you can take steam inhalation two - three times a day, You can take Antihistamine drug like Levocetrizine and omeprazole by consulting with your local doctor .

As you feel like face pressure on left jaw and clicking sound on opening mouth this indicates temporomandibular joint disorder . For clicking sound and tension in neck region you can take some precautions like :
-Avoid excessive mouth opening .
- Do Hot formentation (take towel soak in warm water squeeze it and apply on jaw of both side and neck
Region )
- Take soft diet for few days .
- You can take Drug Muscle relaxtant like Flexon MR or Myospaz Forte by consulting with your local doctor .

Hope this information will help you .
Hope I have answered your query , if you have further query feel free to ask I will be happy to help.

I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!

My Mother has C-Diff and can no longer take most antibotic so the question is how do we treat small infections like a sinus infection or a kidney infection. I know the one antibotic she can take is Flagaral but if she takes it to much will it help her when the c-diff acts up again. Also how contagious is it when she isnt sick with it.
