Hello,
Coxsackie virus have different types-

Type A viruses cause herpangina (painful blisters in the mouth, throat, hands, feet, or in all these areas),conjunctivitis.
Type B viruses cause epidemic pleurodynia (fever, lung, and abdominal pain with headache that lasts about two to 12 days and resolves),meningitis, myocarditis, and pericarditis, but this occurs infrequently.

Most coxsackie virus infections aren't serious.
They typically cause only mild signs and symptoms,such as fever,rash,sore throat,joint pain,headache,blisters.
Sometimes similar to strep throat.

Antibiotics aren't effective in treating coxsackievirus infection.
The line of treatment may rest, fluids, and OTC pain killers.
Coxsackievirus is spread from person to person by coming into contact with respiratory secretions from infected person,touching the contaminated surface.
So it might be possible that there can be relation and everyone have contracted the same virus.
However if you have tested positive for Strep throat and then started antibiotics so Strep throat could be the possible diagnosis in your case.

are the body aches and joint pain normal ??? we are so achy we cant sit still lol literally we took advil tylenol to relieve alittle but not much relief.

Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Thanks for the follow-up.

Bodyache and joint pain can be associated with any bacterial or viral infection.

And usually Advil/Tylenol can provide relief.

As in your case,such medications are not giving you any relief so you shouldn't ignore your symptoms and it's good to see your doctor again if you have completed your antibiotic course.

You should also start multivitamin.

Take proper rest.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

And drink Gatorade.

 


I hope this helps.

Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
Most of the infection subside in 7-12 days.
So you should continue your medications and take proper rest.
In case your symptoms are getting worse then consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.
