I am 32m and have a sore throat for about 2.5 days which started on Thursday afternoon, very mild cough, no fever, no cervical lymphadenopathy, no exudates, moderate yellow sputum, leukocytosis to 14.5 with a normal differential and negative rapid strep on thursday. Associated with mild chest pain as well as fatigue and chills that peaked yesterday and are now improving. Sore throat is still going strong. I know that by CENTOR I am low risk for strep but the leukocytosis and yellow sputum point more towards a bacterial as opposed to a viral infection and the rapid strep has a fairly low sensitivity and untreated strep can have pretty gross long term consequences (rheumatic fever, post strep GN, rheumatic heart disease). Should I take amoxicilin or just let it be?

Six weeks ago I had what was diagnosed as community acquired pneumonia. I was given Azythromycin (one course), which relieved my fever, but I continue to have chest pain, trouble breathing, mild cough, lethargy and worst, continuing strong night sweats. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this part of the normal pneumonia recovery process? I am a 68 year old white male.

Hello, my 7 year old daughter is battling an ear ache possible ear infection for 3 days. I haven t taken her in because I ve been under the impression that s it s best to allow her to work through it with natural home remedies and save antibiotics as a last resort. she has had a fever come and go and I ve been giving her tylenol and made a garlic infused olive oil mix to use as drops in her ear several times a day. it seems to sooth and help a little but neither remedy has gotten the throbbing to go away. throbbing seems to have moved from her ear to a couple areas on her head around her ear. today is the 4th day. because she was in her jammies and laying around most of yesterday, she didn t brush her teeth. this morning i talked her into letting me because her breath was bad and I knew bacteria in the mouth wouldn t help the situation. i was shocked to find that her tongue was blackish green! some of it brushed off but not all and it seemed to be coming from the back of the tongue. is this a sign of bacteria confirming her ear or sinuses probably has a bacterial infection?

I have a constant thundering in my left ear, this has been going on for around 4 to 6 months now, tonight it is seriously freaking me out and I have tooth pain and ear pain with it which never happened before. I have a piercing on the little nub between the ear and the face I cant remember what that part is called but I lost the ball on the earring and did not find it so I am wondering if this could be caused by an object in my ear or if it could be more serious? It is like a beating or thundering in my ear, not a ringing sound. It does not go along with my own heart beat, it is irregular and cases the feeling of vibration on my face as well.
