Chickenpox? Mouth Blisters And Swollen Glands

May 10, 2015

I managed to avoid chicken pox for 48 years ( all my siblings and children had it ). I have developed a rash and it's starting to blister, with blisters in my mouth, extremely hoarse, swollen glands and severe headache. I developed a chesty cough yesterday which has got gradually worse today..are these normal symptoms or do I need medical attention?

Chickenpox? Rashes And Blisters For About 3-4 Days

My younger sister, aged 13, is suffering from what possibly looks like Chicken Pox. She has had rashes and blisters for about 3-4 days now. The rashes are prominently on the face, some of them are on the arms, torso, and waist area. She also has fever, bodyache, and physical weakness. I have not consulted a doctor yet due to certain religious beliefs of my family, related to this disease. Is it Chicken Pox or something else?

Allergies :: Swollen Glands In Neck, Swollen Larynx

I've had swollen glands in my neck, a swollen larynx, and hoarseness for the past few days. The outside of my throat is also sore to touch and gets red. The inside of my throat is fine and it doesn't hurt to swallow. No fever, nothing else. When it rains it gets worse. It sometimes goes away after the rain. In the past I had it and it stayed for over two years straight! The ENT could find no reason for it. Is this allergy-related? Has anyone else had this? If so is there anything that can be done? Nothing I do seems to help. I take 20mg reactine that is supposed to last 24 hours, avamys a corticosteroid nasal spray for allergies. I also take symbicort, ventolin, and singulair for asthma.

Lymphadenopathy :: Swollen Glands

So I've been feeling really lightheaded and dazed for the last 5 months! I'm constantly tired and just feeling really weak mentally, emotionally and physically! I went to the doctors on Feb and they said my glands were swollen in the neck, when in returned a few months later they had gone down but my symptoms persisted! I again went to the doctors in April and my glands have been up ever since and I've now been referred to see an ent? I have had all blood tests which have come back clear!

Does anyone know what this could be?

What will the ent do?

I am so scared it is something bad and so frustrated of feeling so rubbish!

HIV :: Harmless Swollen Glands?

I am an 18 year old heterosexual female. 8 months ago I engaged in unprotected oral sex, with no ejaculation, both giving and receiving. I know this male has had previous partners, but claims he has no STDs or anything. I had no symptoms of anything after. Since then I had kissed people and still no symptoms. I recently got involved in a relationship with a boy my age and I am his first. We have engaged in unprotected oral sex (with ejaculation) and protected sex. We have been together 5 months. I was tested negative for STDs. I did have a yeast infection but was caused by using a certain cream on the area that moisturized. Recently in the past 3-4 weeks my lymph nodes in my neck have swollen. They are about 1-1.5cm and I feel tired and no appetite. I recently got a blood test done for mono, and deficiencies, etc, but not HIV and I also fainted. The blood test came back with the result of a slightly high WBC count. My doctor said I shouldn't be worried and do not need a test. My boyfriend had cut me while fingering me and then ate me out, but neither of us had noticed. I have no fever, no headaches, no cough, chills, or anything... Just fatigue and swollen glands. Should I be worried about HIV? Is this a cause for concern? Do I need a test?

HIV :: Swollen Lymph Glands Under Armpit

So I recently had this fling with a guy from my uni, we slept together but did not have anal sex. We just performed mutual masturbation, and he ejaculated on me (gross I know). Anyways, he is joining the army in a couple of months and obviously they make sure you need to be clean so I am not too worried.

Anyways, for the past week and a half I have had a swollen red bump under my armpit, I am pretty sure it's a swollen lymph thingo - I had one under my right armpit, now I have one on my left.

Tis very small and I have 0 other symptoms, but I am scared to death of the doctors for some weird reason and always get anxiety when I go. So I try to go as little as possible.

While I have no other symptoms, is there a chance it could be HIV? This was about 2-4 weeks ago.

Lymphadenopathy :: Swollen Glands All Over My Neck

I have been having swollen glands all over my neck for the past 3 years now. They are often quite pailful and I keep on getting colds and sore throats all the time, even in the summer.

I have seen various doctors but so far none of them has managed to figure out what I may have.

I've had different check ups too (chest x-rays, neck scan and antibiotics). The scanning shows there are swollen glands but no-one can figure out what could cause them. I have also had loads of blood tests, including leukemia and Hodgkin's' lymphoma.

In the meantime these swollen glands are making my life a misery and I am only 26 years old

Lymphadenopathy :: Swollen Glands And Tonsils

15 months ago I was on holiday in India and got a nasty chest infection that I was very ill with. I took antibiotics which helped, but didn't clear it. When I returned home my GP gave me a second course which helped some more. I ended up with oral thrush as a result, which was treated with Nystatin mouthwash.

Since then I have had bouts of soreness in my mouth, feeling like it has been scalded with hot food, though there is nothing to see. I presumed it was thrush and I know that I am resistant to many thrush treatments, so started to treat it myself with Gentian Violet that I bought off the internet (now not used in this country). It worked when I used it, but the symptoms returned every couple of months.

About 3 months ago I had a cough/cold. It cleared up within the standard time, but left me with an irritation in my throat, causing a nuisance dry cough, even though I was fully well by now. For a few weeks it felt like I had a furry carpet in my throat, just past my glands, but not in my chest. That has cleared up, but the recurrent 'burnt mouth' feeling comes and goes every few days. I have stopped treating it because I didn't know if the Gentian Violet might be making matters worse. My left tonsil is permanently swollen, though my GP says he can see no infection on it. Both glands swell and subside every couple of days and it hurts to swallow when they are up. I often get a chemical taste in my mouth. I can see some clear, blister type lumps right at the back of my tongue, at the left side, where it joins my throat. I can't see them unless I stick my tongue out and shine a light in. My GP couldn't see them, but he could see a similar lump above my left tonsil, which he thought might be a cyst. 

On top of all this I have had persistent sinus trouble, ie green phlegm each morning and irritation frequently which antibiotics help with temporarily, but it always comes back. This has been an ongoing problem for about 7 years.

My GP has referred me urgently to ENT, but even so there is a 6 week wait. I have a couple of theories myself which are hopefully simple to treat - one being that the sinus infection is causing the throat swelling, another being that painkillers that I take long term for a neck problem and which dry everything out have caused blocked salivary glands.

However, I cannot help thinking that there is something much more serious going on and I'm fed up of having a sore throat/mouth all the time too. I am 51, so I don't think glandular fever would be the problem.

Glands :: Possible Swollen Lymph Node In Pubic Area?

I am a 30 year old female with a healthy lifestyle. For about 6 months I have had a lymph node (I think) in the top left side corner of my pubic area that is swollen for most of the day. It goes down at night and after being awake for a couple hours, it swells up again. Sometimes its more swollen than others and becomes painful to touch. It only happens on the left side.

I recently went to my primary doctor (general internist) for her to check it out but it wasn't swollen at the time (early AM) so she couldn't feel it. She ran a blood test and everything came back normal. She said that they are usually nothing to worry about if I don't have any other unusual symptoms.

I advised her of a condition in my left leg called Fibrous Dysplasia, in which I was born with and have had 4 surgeries for (last one was 5 years ago). She told me that since I don't have regular cuts on my legs, or anywhere else, and that I have no other odd symptoms that it could be caused by the associated inflammation of the problem in my leg.

I dont seem to think that its being caused by the inflammation in my leg because I was born with this condition and have had many many flare ups of inflammation and the swollen node started only 6 months ago.

I do have fairly bad environmental allergies so I am contributing it to that, but again, I've had allergies all my life too.

Also, I developed a problem about 4 years ago with a rash. It only appears on my legs (both) most of the time (about 90%) and sometimes on my arms. The rash shows up as small and large (largest size of a silver dollar) hard, red, and painful lumps. I've gotten a biopsy to confirm that it is a rash from my dermatologist. I also did an elimination diet on my own to try and figure out if they were occurring due to a food intolerance but didn't have any successful results.

With all of this information, would anyone be able to provide me with advice or a next step? Is there some other test that should be run? Could this be something other than a lymph node?

Genital Herpes Simplex :: Sore Throat And Swollen Glands

I was diagnosed with genital HSV 1 in November. I've come to terms with it l, but I'm still learning amount it.

A few days ago, I had a sore throat and 1 swollen gland. The next day, I noticed a couple of white spots on the back of my throat. There has been no fever. I have not had any type of sex since early January.

Called my pcp and he called in regular antibiotic until I can get in to see him next week.

Could this be related to my HSV 1 condition or strep throat.

Swollen Hands And Feet, Sore Throat - Lymph Nodes/glands

My friend is staying with me and is feeling really ill and dizzy, his hands and feet are swollen, his neck is swollen and so is his face. His glands and lymph nodes are really swollen. He is really fatigued and has a sore throat. mostly it sounds like Flu symptoms apart from the swelling so can anyone help with an accurate diagnosis, he had his tonsils removed so it isn't tonsillitis.

I gave him co-codamol 30mg/500mg and ibuprofen 600mg tabs, he feels a little better but the swelling hasn't gone down much at all.

Insect Bites :: Bite Blisters And New Blisters Form Around It Days Later

What kind of illness or insect could cause small insect bites to blister on the bite site? After being bitten a blister appears on the skin at the site of the bite after a couple of days, followed by new blisters forming around this bite site a further few days later. Skin appears red and site is painful, blisters are about 1cm in diameter and half a cm in height, newly formed blisters appear much smaller. This insect bite would have been contracted in a central American country such as Guatemala.
