Is it possible to get strep throat caused by stress?

Is it possible to get strep throat caused by stress? Previously, I got a strep throat that started to gradually start hurting and then it turned into strep. At the time, it was an extremely stressful day. I hadn’t another extremely stressful day and now my throat is gradually beginning to hurt.

Hi. I was chewing a piece of Mentos gum today and fell asleep while chewing it. I woke up about 3 hours later, and now I feel like I have strep throat. Is it possible for gum to give you a sore throat? and what are some simple solutions for getting rid of it?

Can strep throat cause bloodshot eyes. The inner corners of my 7 year old s eyes are bloodshot. He has had a fever for four days now. Yesterday we took him to the dr. & he was positive on the rapid strep test. Could the bloodshot eyes be attributed to strep throat? Or, is it possible he has a virus as well that is causing that?

Hello, Doctor. I recently took Cephalexin as prescribed for an infected toe. The toe is fine now, but the podiatrist mentioned that some anti-biotics may harm the body s natural immune system by destroying the good bacteria in our system. Yesterday, I was diagnosed with strep and candida for two maladies in my oral, throat and sinus cavities, requiring four additional medicines. The PA who diagnosed me also alluded to the possibility that Cephalexin may have contributed to the current situation. I m 69 years old, generally good health, etc., and don t get sick but maybe once every 2-3 years. Any thoughts?
