The area of the throat
directly behind the uvula and
the right tonsillar pillar was red and sore
. Slowly, over the past few days, the uvula has shortened, but still rests on my tongue. The lower third of it is now grayish-white. The area behind the uvula is looking better and so is the tonsillar pillar, but my posterior mouth is so sore! It seems to be sore above my soft palate, posterior tongue, uvula, and throat. In looking at my mouth, it looks mildly red, not too remarkable.
