Hello Community! They are also treated with antiviral drugs, like aciclovir, zelitrex and famvir. He should check whether the website states all the terms in a proper manner. This article is within the scope of WikiProject Medicine, which recommends that medicine-related articles follow the Manual of Style for medicine-related articles and that biomedical information in any article use high-quality medical sources. Please visit the project page for details or ask questions at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine. You can also use antiviral drugs for less serious conditions such as a cold sore for example. But you don’t determine what triggers this does ice help cold sores zoster parasite virus lives in your mouth or face, while type 2 virus has already natural ways to get rid of cold sores fast key codes become immune system.

Salt-water gargles are often suggested in articles, but seems little evidence that provide anything other than temporary relief (and can be dangerous if swallowed by young chidren). Virus I have tried to expand out and provide links, this still looks a little sparse so any contributions welcome 🙂 In particular I have tried add structure to streptococcal symptoms and complications and provided links to the evidence on the role of antibiotics – the Cochrane meta-analysis looked at 26 studies covering 12,669 cases. You also need to stay away from young children and babies during outbreaks of cold sores. 47 per 1000 person-years (95 % confidence interval CI: 4. Indeed the presence of a simultaneous cold as a presenting pharyngitis pretty much guarantees that the patient has a viral infection (90% of sore throats) as generally a bacterial pharyngitis does not present with coryza. I always have taken this to be one single illness (viral infection) presenting with a number of symptoms (runny nose, nasal irritation causing sneezing, temperature, sore throat, mild headache, mild generalised ache or tiredness), rather than different modes of illness (eg as bacterial tonsillitis is different from a bacterial urinary tract infection). Given that common self-limiting illnesses generally do not require conventional medicines (or they have little overall effect in recovery time), the area is ripe for speculation, pseudoscience and alternative medicine wishful thinking (hmmm there opens up a large can of worms), so ideas of weakened immunity are not I think based on any hard evidence as far as I am aware (HIV/AIDS is quite different from having a cold where the gums & tonsils will happily continue to fight off the host of normal oral bacteria, and the gut continues to prevent any number of nasty anaerobic bacteria – i.e.

Furthermore the evidence is that people can cope with multiple vaccinations at a single time). Instead I always gathered that the cold virus went not for “the nose” but rather “upper respiratory tract epithelium”, i.e. the nose, throat and upper airways. All babies cross their eyes briefly as they develop their tracking skills. What is needed here is of course some external source that we may research this from and cite & verify the information (rather than my half-remembered medical school lectures or acquired wisdom of clinical practice). So searching on PubMed for terms “Pharyngitis Coryza” gives many studies on which antibiotics are used, but little that seems to look specifically at the frequency of specific symptoms or combination of presentations.: “Understanding the symptoms of the common cold and influenza.” PMID 16253889 informs us that “The mechanisms of symptoms of sore throat, rhinorrhoea, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, watery eyes, and sinus pain are discussed, since these mechanisms are not dealt with in any detail in standard medical textbooks.” – unfortunately full article is not freely available online.

Interesting study on which viruses are involved (and that seems make little difference to symptoms) comes from “Frequency and natural history of rhinovirus infections in adults during autumn.” PMID 9350748 (full PDF). The seroprevalence (percentage number of tested positive serological parameters (here: HSV) at a given time in a given population) are presented in the US about 58% for HSV-1 and 16% for HSV-2 2, 3. indicating that a viral cold may have sore throat as part of the same infection & illness process. This statement, “Swallowing a couple teaspoons of raw lemon or lime juice several times a day may help destroy microorganisms in bacteria-related throat infections.” needs to have a source… As a health care professional, this doesn’t even make sense… It is important to understand that although someone may not have visible sores or symptoms, they may still be infected by the virus and may transmit the virus to others. and if you could kill off any, it would be likely that you would kill off other bacteria which had colonized the throat…

in turn hurting the patient even further by allowing the infectious organism or ANOTHER infectious organism to move in and claim the free space. The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Upon infection with HSV-2, a three-fold increased risk of HIV infection has been described 1.

The redirect is doubtless the best we can do for now; but the ideal solution would be for someone to write sore throat as a dab for them all. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 16:17, 19 August 2009 (UTC) I’m decidedly not an expert on medicine, but this article seems to cover the whole topic, of which “Acute pharyngitis” is just one aspect. The article probably needs expert attention to copy edit it properly, but that’s no excuse to have the redirect/content backwards is it? — V = I * R (talk to Ω) 19:51, 19 August 2009 (UTC) Neither am I; but it says it doesn’t cover the whole topic: The remainder of this article is about the acute form is in the second paragraph. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 20:33, 19 August 2009 (UTC) As for “precision”, the acute (medicine) is just an adjective. If it is subset or sub-article of pharyngitis, it can be considered merged, and spinned out if it expands or deserves. If you look at history, the moves were sore throat -> pharyngitis -> acute pharyngitis.

Also, the “remaineder of article is acute” is not verified, and when i go through the refs – only few of them refer as “acute” sore throat. Even that case it can further be moved to Acute sore throat(469k google hits) as consensus? Doorvery far (talk) 04:52, 20 August 2009 (UTC) Regardless of intent, this article apparently currently serves as Wikipedia’s “Sore throat” article since Sore throat redirects here. If there is to be more specific sub articles from this one (such as an actually specific Acute pharyngitis article), then I think that we should allow that to happen on it’s own. If the content of this article is lacking in some manner (which seems obvious) then that is certainly a problem, but it’s not a problem which should be resolved by (failing to) move and rename the page. Content disputes != movereq requirements. Oppose the Google argument; precision and medical names over google results…

Sceptre (talk) 18:39, 20 August 2009 (UTC) …I’m confused. “The Google argument?” You’re opposed to a move because the name the page is being nominated to is receiving 168% more hits then the current article title? The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section. A Cochrane review just came out in Oct 2010 which states “Pharyngitis or tonsillitis, a throat infection that usually presents with a sore throat, is a common upper respiratory tract infection.” and then proceeds to use the terms interchangeable throughout.

It does not state “are” common URTI indicating that these two terms are a single entity. The full ref is van Driel ML, De Sutter AI, Keber N, Habraken H, Christiaens T (2010). “Different antibiotic treatments for group A streptococcal pharyngitis”. Cochrane Database Syst Rev 10: CD004406. doi:10.1002/14651858.CD004406.pub2. PMID 20927734. emphasizing that pharyngitis is the preferred term.

Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:04, 3 December 2010 (UTC) Whilst an important review on choice of antibiotics, it neither further promotes or rejects the proposed topic merger. In common usuage, pharyngitis is used as a symptom description interchangeably with sore throat (accepting that not all sore throat is pharyngitis and might include herpetic ulcers over palate, uvulitis etc), but it is not generally used to signify anatomically an exclusive area/disorder. So given that most sore throats are viral, and most often occurs alongside symptoms of nasal irritation and congestion, in otherwords the common cold, then by extension of the proposal to be inclusive (and merely discuss aspects of some sub-feature in a side section – eg role of not using amoxicillin in tonsilitis in case condition may be glandular fever), then might we not merge whole lot with rhinopharyngitis? The overall management of most cases would be set out by symptomatic measures (rest, fluids, steaming/humidity & analgesia) and would merely give a side paragraph outlining the minority of cases needing antibiotics. A case of reductio ad absurdum I agree, but I think there are good grounds therefore for keeping closely related articles apart – the history of routine to now selective tonsillectomy alone should keep the major discussion about tonsillitis out of any article about a sore throat where the tonsils are not involved. PS rhinopharyngitis I see currently redirects to pharyngitis which is wrong as no mention is made of treating a viral cold. Nasopharyngitis redirects to Common cold.

David Ruben Talk 17:03, 4 December 2010 (UTC) We do have a page of sore throat. Have corrected the redirect on rhinopharyngitis.
