I have had a sore throat for some days which progressed to severe pain while swallowing. I saw a doctor and he diagnosed it as Laryngitis , and even he was unsure why it hurt so much. I was put on a course of penicillin antibiotics and advised voice rest and anti-inflammatory drugs. The throat never got better, my whole throat got inflammed and swollen. And it progressed to severe lung infection-bronchitis with cough and fever. Also skin lesions have started appearing on my upper leg, patchy dark brown lesions-dry and non flaky lesions. Now I am really worried, do I have some kind of underlying disease.
I also have had alopecia areata since 1,5 yrs with round patchy hair loss on the head and parts of face. Does that have any connection to all the above symptoms. Can someone help me to get the proper diagnosis?
