About four to five days ago I began to feel symptoms of fever, including a slight
headache, nasal congestion, light>stiff
light> and muscles and a light>sore
light>. When looking in the mirror at the back of my light>throat
light> I saw I had a few (four or five) small cold-sore
like irritations behind my uvula. There are no lesions, sore
s or pain anywhere else in or around my mouth, nor on my genitalia. I am wondering if I may have contracted herpes of the throat
or if I have simply come down with a fever or cold.
