Common Questions and Answers about Swollen uvula white

swollen

The roof of my mouth is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span>, and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> is swollen and almost touching the back of my tongue. I feel like I should keep swallowing. Never happened before. No new foods, meds, etc.
I had an endoscopy done on Friday and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> was really swollen Friday night and Saturday morning. It was purple. It is now Sunday and it is still really swollen, but not nearly as bad as it was. It is no longer purple, but has turned white. I have gargled with salt water today. Any other suggestions for bringing the swelling down and why it is white?
I have had a sore throat for about 2 weeks, just the last 7 days little pimple on my tounge have appeared (lie bumps) and my uvula looks like it has burst blood vessles and is swollen.
Fisrt day was fever and sweating with acheing joints and some vomiting. Days 2-10 swollen tonsils with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> patches (extremely painful). Now my uvula is swollen and sitting on my tounge. Ok so heres what I have been using to combat this. Gargle with salt water, Drink warm water with honey and lemon, Tylenol for pain (actually works for once), had some fluticasone propionate for nasal congestion (stopped working so switched to afrin) and zinc cough drops.
the problem I'm having since then has been with my throat....somehow during the intubation my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> took a hit and is quite swollen and bruised at the bottom.....how typical is this? and about how long does it take to heal? It's not having an adverse effect on my breathing....but it does cause a gagging sensation and makes swallowing/eating difficult.
My son is almost 11 months and he has a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> cyst on his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span>. I am so concerned although the pediatrician isn't too concerned. She is referring me to a HNT doctor. I am worried that this could lead to other things. I just don't know anything about this and it worries me to think that my son would have to maybe have surgery. Help? Does anyone know more about this?
I felt like my throat was closing up and I could feel my uvula sitting on my tongue. And after looking in the mirror I could clearly see that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> was very red and swollen. And the rest of my throat very red too. I havent noticed any white spots on the back of my throat. I am 11weeks pregnant and am worried that i maybe wasting my gps time by going down to the surgery because he may not be able to give me any medication which would help me while im pregnant.
I also have swelling around my front teeth in the back, kinda of half circle shaped towards the tooth along with swollen glands and 2 or 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> spots on the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span>. Any ideas to what this could be and if it's serious, needs to have quick medical attention or should I rush to the hospital considering its the labor day weekend.
Hi, I woke up at 1am Saturday morning with a suddenly very swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span>, which makes swallowing difficult. My throat has been extremely painful since then for 4 days, the pain gets quite sharp and radiates to my nose, right ear, and now to the sinuses around my eyes and forehead.
Now I feel my tonsils and tongue are swollen as well and although I have no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> on my tonsils or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> my tongue has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> spots on and right underneath it. I do suffer from seasonal allergies although they usually just give me hives, and I currently have a post nasal drip. Has anyone ever had anything similar? Any ideas on what I have or when this uvula will go back to normal?
The lower third of it is now grayish-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span>. The area behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> 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. My gyn procedure went well and was only 15 min. long.
Up until this year I have had no problems with my throat but now every time I get a cold my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> gets extremely swollen to the point where it is difficult to breathe. I got a cold about 3 weeks ago and now have what looks like white puss pockets on my uvula and it's very swollen, I had been put on two different types of antibiotics that are not helping. Will I have to have my uvula removed like my tonsils or is there something else they can do?
The doctor that diagnosed me was very concerned about the size of my tonsils, he told me that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> was deviated and he was worried about them but since he was from a low cost clinic he knew I couldnt afford to go the ER. So, treated me with strep and the swelling went way down. Every since then, I go through days where I still have trouble with the swelling coming back. The problem is that when I search for symptoms everywhere says that sore throat goes along with that symptom.
I have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
I went to look into the mirror to find the right side of my throat/tonsil (not sure the proper term here) was swollen and red and the left side had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> spots. First thing I thought was oh great I'm getting strep. I use to get strep every year and the doctor at one time told me I need to look into having my tonsils taken out do to the chronic strep and they looked inflamed. Well the next day or so the tenderness was gone so I figured it was getting better.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> has this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> piece of gunk ATTACHED to it. It was all swollen from my endoscopy, but now that is better. Now it just has this little white gunky thing attached to it. I even tried reaching back there, figuring it was just mucus, but it was literally attached to the end of my uvula. Here is a photo. Anyone know what this could be?
please i need help, im 17 male, my lymph nodes were always swollen due to my acne however, recently my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> is inflamed , my tonsils have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> marks on them and i can barely eat food because it is extremely painful ( i have a high pain tolerance) , but the catch is im not sick, i dont have a fever.
I have a big white spot in the back of my throat in front of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> and a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> spot on one of my tonsils. Very sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, no fever, no runny nose at least presently, some sneezing. I have had about a dozen of these episodes in my life. It's always the same thing the strep test is either negative or inconclusive but I get prescribed antibiotics and the spots clear up in a day or two and everything is fine. I'm 38 and have had throat and ear problems forever.

I am also having problems with my throat and have lumps on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> as well as pain further back and feeling of having a swollen tongue. I was wondering if anyone ever got a definate diagnosis? I too suffer from anxiety which I am doing something about and am four weeks into CBT to tackle my health anxiety problem. Ive got myself convinced that Ive got the start of throat cancer and the ongoing lumpy feeling when I swallow doesnt help to alleviate my fears.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> is slightly swollen and I've got a sticky mucus that I feel I always need to cough up. When I rub my tongue on the roof of my mouth in the back it feels rough. Visually my throat looks red and my tonsils were taken out as a child, but there is a white area on one side where my tonsils would be. I'm taking Benedryl which I believe helps with the mucus, but this has been going on for about two weeks. Any thoughts on what this might be ?
I am in my 60's and have only just started to have either a swollen face or, on the last two occasions, a swollen tongue, which all started in September. The first time I had a swollen tongue was 4 weeks ago and I ended up in hospital. I had already taken Piriton but it didn't help. At the hospital they gave me Prednisolone which worked very quickly and I was packed off home with another 2 days supply.
not very often • Painful to swallow • Can still eat, talk, sing, etc. with very minimal pain • Sort of swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> • Sort of swollen tonsils • <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> thingies sort of in my tonsils...probably tonsil stones. I hope so. • Back wall of throat is pretty pink • Sneezing, only on occasion; it's July, maybe a summer cold? • white "furry" tongue • Clearing of throat I'm 21 years old and ♂ male. Maybe it was a few days ago, but I coughed up a very vile-smelling off-white glob of...stuff...
i am thirteen years old and i have these bumps on my back of my tougue and on the sides my left gland is always swollen do you know what this could mean. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/421106'>Tongue bumps, swolle glands and white spots on uvula</a>.
) There was dried blood all up on my lips when I first woke up, but since I have cleaned it out real well, all I have now are red blisters all around. My lips are -very- swollen. My tongue has caught onto the slimy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> stuff, and now my whole tongue, from front to very back where I cant see, is now white, with an exeption where some of the white stuff had been scraped off. I'm having troubles moving my tongue at all.
Hi Actually I should reword the "I don't feel sick at all" statement. What I meant to say was that I don't feel as if it is a cold or flu like symptoms. This is something that just seems to happen. The only reason for the thyroid antibodies are because of an elevated WBC for years and from what I've been told or read threw post or personal messages. I am very tired most of the time regardless of how much sleep I get. My HR tracker was starting to look like an EKG recording.
They went away after a few days and I was fine. Minus the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> spots, the swollen tonsils/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>uvula</span> also seem to occur regularly. Do you think there is a bigger underlying problem?
When I look in there, the back of my mouth (top part of the throat) has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> on it. I thought my tonsils were swollen, and the tonsil on the left side had an oval whitish spot on it. I went to the doctor and he said I had a build up of pus in my throat, and my tonsils didn't look bad. He put me on antibiotics, thinking it was strep or possibly mono. The strep test and mono spot came back negative, and nothing has grown on the culture they used from the strep test.
