    Strep-Throat: How long does the white streak last?

    I had a scratchy throat last Friday and found a large white streak on my tonsil and going down my throat. I went to an urgent care Saturday morning and they diagnosed me with Strep without testing it. I was put on an antibiotic. Now it's Monday night and I realize it's only been about 60 hours but I am not feeling better and my throat doesn't look better at all, if anything worse.

    Any help; Appreciate it :)

    So, about 3 years ago, I was pretty normal. I was living my life, having fun. On New Year’s Eve, I started experiencing an odd ache behind my ear, along the skull.

I started getting very bad jaw aches, to the point where I’d start crying. I went to my dentist, they said it was normal and for two years straight they....

    Esophagus Specialist

    My uncle asked me to get this information for him. The cartilage in his esophagus shut down 8 days ago. He cannot drink or eat. He currently has a feeding tube in his nose, is severely dehydrated due to diarrhea that does not seem to be stopping. The hospital is talking about putting in a feeding tube in his stomach, which he does not want. He is wanting to know if there are specialists that can repair the damage to his esophagus. I'm sorry I don't have much more information. I am doing this....
