I took a flashlight and checked the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>
to see if my glands were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>
and white (because i have had mononucleosis before). The sides of my throat
look fine but the glands feel swollen
and I'm coughing more today, however the back of my throat
has little patches of redness when you look straight back behind the uvula
. I'm getting kind of nervous about the whole situation. Could it be coincidence that I just have a sore throat
and a cough or could it be any form of an STI?
