People who have diabetes, heart problems, kidney or liver disease, and pregnant women are more prone to this problem.As the swelling increases, it can cause general discomfort and people may find it difficult to walk or stand. If you open your mouth widely before the mirror, you can see a tiny part hanging at the end of your throat, which is called as uvula. Uvula gets inflamed when the mucus membrane and tissues that surrounds the uvula develops swelling.
People having sleep apnea would have a tendency to sleep with opened mouth which can trigger infection of uvula causing swollen uvula. Some of the signs of swollen uvula include swelling of uvula, change in normal color of the uvula and slight enlargement of uvula.
Conjunctivitis is the term which depicts the inflammation of the conjunctiva, the transparent tissue that covers the surface of the eye.
The nature of the discharge and the fact if the infection is limited to only one eye or both eyes may help find out the cause. When only one eye is affected and the cat is pawing at it, it may indicate the presence of a foreign object or simply eyelashes rubbing against the eyes. When the discharge appears like mucous or pus and the conjunctiva appears red and swollen, it is very possible that the infection is caused by bacteria. When the cat is squinting and keeping the eye shut from pain, a foreign object may be embedded or other serious eye disorders may be into play such as keratitis, uveitis or glaucoma which may result in blindness. When the discharge is purulent and due to bacteria, antibiotics may be needed to clear out the infection.
There are really no home remedies that may help a pet once the infection has set in, however, the pet may be helped feel more comfortable at home.
Cats with watery discharge may be helped in some cases at home by applying a moist warm tea bag (just plain tea) to the eyes due to its tannin contents. Simple sterile saline solution (without disinfectants) may be helpful as a temporary measure to clean the eye and give relief. Some pharmacies or the internet stores sell over the counter Terramycin which is an ointment which can help eye infections in case of conjunctivitis. There have been reports of owners healing their cats from eye problems upon rubbing one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar on their neck.
Gum infection goes hand in hand with the gum diseases, also referred to as Periodontitis’.
A  Both of theseA ingredients are not going to leave a good taste in your mouth, but are extremely effective in fighting the infections in the mouth. In other articles I have written about strep, I have had readers think I am an ignorant parent for daring to treat something as serious as Strep at home.
With a more serious illness like Strep, you must administer remedies more often as I’ve mentioned above. I used to get strep throat 3-4 times a year as a child even up through my teen years and into my 20s. I love that book, but this actually based on the success of Dr Christopher treating hundreds of patients as I have described.
Our family had strep for the first time last winter (first time for our children–I had it a lot as a child, and always took antibiotics for it), and we treated it naturally, without antibiotics.
We did pretty similar things that you described: elderberry, raw garlic, colloidal silver, Vitamin C.
Hitting an illness hard and working with the natural immune system has saved us scores of doctors visits and hundreds of dollars, but I agree – I never, ever hesitate in the least in getting medical help when needed. One week into a strep infection in my poor three year old and we just started antibiotics (and one hit of steroids! Epsom SaltEpsom salt works fast to reduce swelling and can help alleviate pain and discomfort, too. It is a tiny cone shaped tongue like structure that hangs from the soft palate of the throat.
Swollen uvula can be treated by diagnosing the underlying cause that has caused inflammation. This can happen due to some medical conditions like tonsillitis, dehydration, common cold, bacterial infection, acid reflux and allergens. Snoring, smoking, excessive drinking and exposure to irritants can cause inflammation of the uvula. The main function of the conjunctiva is to protect the eye by trapping debris and protecting the eye from dangerous viruses and bacteria.


When both eyes are generally affected and the discharge appears clear, allergies or systemic diseases may be the triggers. Some times the secretions are so thick that the eyelids may appear sealed after the cat takes a nap. If the infection starts in one eye and then progresses to the other later, Clamydia or Mycoplasma may be suspected. The antibiotics are topical in the form of eye drops or ointments and need to be given as prescribed without stopping early, even if the cat’s eyes appear to be already healing.
The eye can be cleaned and flushed for a few minutes with fresh water from the faucet and it should be checked for any foreign matter.
There are many serious conditions out there and it is not worth risking the cat’s sight! If your cat is exhibiting eye problems, please refer to your veterinarian for a hand’s on examination. We had just moved to a new house, I didn’t have a new vet yet, and I should have known my cat would have a stress-related flair up with conjunctivitis. The common symptoms of gum infection are swelling, bleeding in the gums, pain, loose teeth and bad odour in the mouth. You accept that you are following any advice at your own risk and will properly research or consult healthcare professional.
I just found out that when my mom had Pneumonia real bad when I was a kid after a while she finally bought garlic powder in pill form and it helped her a lot. Great post- but I do want to stress the importance, particularly in children, in paying attention if the illness worsens. The magnesium sulfate in Epsom salt is easily absorbed through the skin and helps improve circulation and reduce swelling.
The uvula is the organ that creates sounds while you speak and is made of soft tissue and muscles. Sometimes canker sores that develop in your mouth can spread till uvula causing inflammation. Avoid smoking or drinking when you have sore throat and swollen uvula since it can worsen the symptoms. For treating swollen uvula due to severe allergy your doctor may prescribe antihistamines and sometimes steroid medications to reduce swelling. This is done only if there is pain and considerable swelling which does not respond to any medication. However, as with any tissue, the conjunctiva may be prone to irritation and infection, therefore causing conjunctivitis. Other causes may be related to irritants such as dust, wind, and allergens which often cause eye itchiness with the cat pawing at the eye and rubbing its face.
Terramycin is an eye ointment available over the counter which can help for cat conjunctivitis.
If something is identified, a q-tip may be used to carefully and gently allow the debris to stick to the cotton.
After Googling, I (skeptically) dabbed ACV + tiny bit of water on the back of his neck, and the next morning his eyes were almost completely clear. The neem paste or chewing on neem leaves is just not possible as they are bitter beyond tolerance so the best way is to chew the neem bark or stick. The saliva flushes the mouth regularly and frequently keeping the mouth fresh and freeA of harmful bacteria.That is why hydration of mouth is very important. I successfully treated myself for strep using grapefruit seed extract and a hot infusion drink made with elderberry, ginger, and lemon juice (and some other immune boosting herbs). Contrast HydrotherapyThis type of hydrotherapy, which includes both cold and warm water, is highly effective for reducing swelling in your feet. It also gives additional protection for the nasal cavity by screening the entry of bacteria and other micro-organisms into the digestive tract. Acid reflux disease can cause swollen uvula since the pressure of acid from the digestive tract can irritate the soft membranes of uvula leading to inflammation.
There would be constant urge to cough (dry irritant cough) even there is no mucus or phlegm produced from the mouth. People with sleep apnea disorder may snore severely that can cause constant swelling of uvula. Conjunctivitis is often referred to as red eye or pink eye and it is the most common eye disorder seen in cats.


Delays in treating serious eye disorders may result in major ocular damage and even blindness in severe cases. You my have to get a complete scaling of teeth done at a dentist’sA  who may also prescribe some antibiotics for the infection. Wash off with normal water only.Do not use mouthwash or brush your teeth after using this paste.
Keep taking water or fluids preferably without any artificial sugar additives to keep up the water level in the mouth.
I may be young almost turning 27 but, not that going the the doctor is a bad thing, I don’t think it even touches the effectiveness of natural way of anything. I am convinced that repeat courses of antibiotics contributed to repeat cases of strep throat. Good thing my wife knows how to do the massage for me since she has basic training on massaging.
It can cause change in your voice (hoarse voice) since uvula is involved in the articulation of sound. However, you can do your own bit at home in a natural way which will not interfere with the medication, if you are taking any. In fact people used the neem stick instead of brush and toothpaste in the olden days to keep their gums healthy and the mouth odour away. The warmth of the water reduces swelling and soothes the pain whereas salt flushes out the infection out of the gums and abscesses.
We didn’t know we had it until it was more advanced (for some reason I never even considered that we might have strep until my sore throat was so severe that I finally took a look at it and noticed the telltale signs of strep).
I’ve been battling pneumonia since October, 2 courses of heavy antibiotics and still not gone.
Great post by the way!Sharath September 5, 2015 at 7:56 pm ReplyHi , first of all,thanks for the post,appreciate the knowledge sharing. Do not take anything too cold or hot since it can affect the soft membranes of uvula causing inflammation.
Since most bacterial pneumonia comes from a strain of streptococcus, this may just be what I need instead. It creates pressure on the affected area that helps relax sore muscles and improve circulation. This solution will fight the bacterial infection and provide a lot of relief to the swelling and pain in the gums. I diagnosed myself according to the memory of how strep feels and the way that it looks inside my throat. DandelionThe diuretic property of dandelion helps the body metabolize extra fluids, making it a great remedy for swollen feet. Just place ur feet on two to three soft pillows while sleeping,ensure that its not too high and make ur leg and joints strain or uncomfortable,let it be in a comfortable height.by doing this the excess liquid goes out of the body through urine, you can do it at night if you are comfortable waking up to empty your bladder, do it at the time of rest and trust me its the best way to get edema or swelling down. I got the antibiotic in case we decided to use it, but wanted to try natural alternatives first.
We started a rigorous program which includes colloidal silver, oil of oregano, our own homemade tonic of ACV, garlic, hot pepper, horseradish, ginger,and onion, and other supplements.
My goal was to get my body to recognize strep and hopefully develop some sort of immunity to it. Lemon WaterDrinking lemon water helps flush out excess fluid and toxins from your body, which can reduce swelling in the feet and other areas of the body caused by water retention. Unless her tongue got burned from the raw garlic that I’ve been crushing into her food. She also has a rash on her rear, but that came on when the sore throat did (we’re treating her rear with coconut oil mixed with antibacterial essential oils and it seems to be helping also added the epsom salt bath today). Anyway, I’m wondering if a person is getting better, why would the rash be spreading to the tongue? Ever since that happened, if I even get a slight sore throat, I gargle with ACV and water and it takes care of it.
