Common Questions and Answers about White bumps in throat sore throat

sore

Do you have a fever or any pus in your throat (white bumps or patches near the tonsils or the back of your throat)? If do you it could be a strep throat. IF no fever and no pus but just a red throat it maybe a virus. It should pass in a couple of days if it is a virus. If it dosen't get better then see a doctor and be honest about the oral sex. They can easily do a throat swab for GC and also a culture for strep throat or a rapid strep test and culture. Hope this helps.
white looking patches near my tonsils,(the white stuff, or patch dosen't scrape off- I've tried), small, sore, red bumps in the same area. Tonsils look like they may have pus pockets or something. Tongue feels sore sometimes. I've had numerous colds, or what I think it was, in the last few months. I'm almost always congested, blowing my nose to breathe or coughing up phlem, or dry coughing, especially at night when I try to sleep.
And today i just noticed some reddish/white bumps in the far back of my throat and on the back of my tongue. Other then that i feel fine. I dont have a fever or a cold. I feel like i have a lot of mucus caught in the back of my throat whenever i swallow but thats about it. I'm very worried that this could be gonorrhea of the throat and I'm worried about seeing a doctor. I could just be paranoid but i dont know what to do. What happens if I do have gonorrhea of the throat?
I am completely stressing over theses bumps in my throat and them not permmitting me to dance which is my passion, my love my eveything. I've lost nine months rehearsing day and night that i could've spent with my mother who has breast cancer. Please, can someone, anyone point me in the right direction of treatment so my mother can see me perform one last time?
I have no fever, or white bumps, instead I have flesh colored bumps in the back of my throat that have not gone away for 3 weeks now. I've also noticed as of lately, small, painless red bumps on my fingers and hands. I currently have counted 7 on my left hand (1 on pinky, 2 on index, 1 on middle, 1 on pointer, and 2 on the palm side of my thumb) and 5 on my right hand (2 on pointer and 3 on middle).
One common cause for white bumps on tongue is yeast infection. In this condition white bumps may appear more like white patches that are painful when touched. White little bumps can also be caused by an inflammatory condition called oral lichen planus. The best treatment for this bump on the side of your tongue depends on the underlying cause of this problem. If it is due to inflamed papillae and lichen planus it may heal on its own otherwise you may need antibiotics or oral antifungal agents.
All my symptoms cleared up for a bit but now my sore throat is back, little white sore bumps on the sides of my tonuge, underneath my tongue is sore. There is also white spots on the back of my throat. It's not strep been tested.
However, over three weeks later, I still have the sore throat and can now see white-ish bumps in the back of my throat. They're difficult to see because they're located along the sides of my pharynx and the lower back part of my tongue, but they're white bumps with red borders, most often in clusters. I also have some on the back sides of my tongue, one cluster on each side, right where the tongue meets the back molars.
I'm on my 10th day with a sore throat. It started as a severly sore throat, could hardly swallow, swollen and sore glands in the neck accompanied with some mild flu like symptoms (fatigue, slight fever, nasal congestion & diareaha). The flu symptoms faded after 72 hours. However, the sore throat remained. It did seem to get better for a day. But returned the following day accompanied with a dry cough.
So, for the past 24 hours I have had a really bad sore throat. My throat looks red and it hurts when I swallow. I am all congested and cant breath, which means I cant sleep because I wake up so many times having to blow my nose only for it to clog back up again!!! Is there anything I can take? Throat drops? Decongestant?? ANYTHING!! My OB office is not open yet so I am looking for some input before I actually talk to them....
A blood test reveals that I have HSV-1, but my doctors insist that neither the white gunk on my tongue nor the sore throat has anything to do with oral herpes of any kind.
Within a few hours after having unprotected sex and oral sex with my girlfriend, I experienced a moderately sore throat. I noticed also some red bumps and white mucous 'globs' in spots... some stringy and a few blobs on the very back inside. They'd stick to my finger tip etc. Yesterday I went to a clinic and they prescribed a antibiotic (along with some pill they gave me one of right in the office). They did an RPR test for syphilis which came back non reactive.
About 2 months ago I got a very bad sore throat with flesh colored bumps all in the back and at the same time had my first herpes type 2 outbreak. At the time I didnt know I had herpes so i went to my obgyn and had a swab done to verify my bumps were herpes. I told my doctor about the bumps in my throat he brushed it off as nothing. I took amoxicillin for my throat thinking it was an infection but it didnt go away. 2 weeks later the bumps on my throat and vagina were gone.
This happened after taking a lot of lozenges because of my sore throat. Now I'm really scared. Do these red bumps mean something?
Anyways, last night I gave him oral sex again and now my throat is sore and everytime I swallow it feels like there is a lump in the back. I looked at my throat and there seems to be little white areas in the back of my throat that appear to look like bumps, except they dont hurt(I managed to feel them). I am almost positive it is not herpes, because I just recently gave him oral sex and I'm not sure how long it would take for it to be noticeable. Help please!
My throat is swollen and red with a few white bumps but no fever or chills. The lymph nodes in my neck are swollen and tender, and my back is sore as well as my neck. I have a little queezyness when I walk too. The lymph nodes near my hips are also swollen. Any ideas?
I've now had a sore throat for 3 months post my possible exposure. I also have ongoing stomach pains in my gut (cramping) and red bumps that don't go away on my stomach. I started the sore throat about 2 weeks after exposure and it has not gone away and the stomach issues have kept coming. I've had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and blood work, all ok...no issues.
The past 3 days I believe, my throat was starting to feel dry and I'm feeling pain in the right side of my throat only. I looked and saw just one white bump, not in the back of my throat, but close to it. its on the arch close to the tonsil. I kinda of feel some pressure in my right ear, but i'm not too sure yet. I have a doctors appointment this thursday, but any thoughts on what this is. Is it just paranoia or i'm I sick??? Please help and advise.
I had a sore throat in April, and the doctor gave me amoxicillin believing i had strept throat, without swabbing. The antibiotics didn't work until day 7 out of 10, and a few days after i finished the antibitocs it came back. A different doctor prescribed me cefaclor which worked after using it for 1 day. When I finished the prescription, a day after i had a sore throat. The doctor prescribed me cefaclor again, and once again when I finished the prescription, the sore throat came right back.
Other times it feels like theres things caught on the back of my throat, almost like it feels to have hair caught in your throat, i guess. Tonight i looked at my throat and there are a few white-ish spots on the top of my uvula, and two tiny white bumps i guess you could say. It almost looked like mucus on it, but it doesn't go away when i swallow/drink something. I'm pretty positive i have some sort of mouth STD now, but i just want second opinions.
However, as I recovered, left side of throat became scratchy, raw, with white, pimply bumps (tonsils are out), and the left side of the peritonsillar arch (back of mouth, in front of where tonsils were) swelled up but did not hurt. Finally went to the doctor, who said yeah, it was probably strep and prescribed strong Augmentin for 10 days (my first antibiotics in ten years, btw.
About a week and some days after the event, I woke up having to constantly clear my sore throat and was having some issues talking (hoarse voice). There were no other symptoms. I went to an immediate care facility and they did a rapid strep and throat swab, although I didn't mention to them about the unprotected oral as I was embarassed. The strep came back negative and they put me on Z-Pack (which I took to finish) anyway.
So my question is, does this sound like another STD besides HIV that would give me an inflamed red throat/tonsils, on and off sore throat, bumps/blisters on the back of my throat, one swollen cervical lymph node, reoccurring white spots on tonsils, and whitish/yellow discharge from my throat which coats my tongue.
With your symptoms it's unlikely it is herpes. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which you had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor.
Not on the blisters around and I've tried looking for and answer but all of the questions say they have white bumps but mine are red. I have no medical insurance so can't go to the doctor to find out what it is. Can you please help.
I have these painful red lumps in the left side of my throat. When I swallow it feels like a popcorn kernel is stuck there. The pain goes up into my ear.
