Common Questions and Answers about White bumps in throat sore throat


Do you have a fever or any pus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps or patches near the tonsils or the back of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>)? 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> stuff, or patch dosen't scrape off- I've tried), small, sore, red bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
I am completely stressing over theses bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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?
and today i just noticed some reddish/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the far back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 have no fever, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps, instead I have flesh colored bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> this condition <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps may appear more like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> patches that are painful when touched. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> 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.
I have had a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> for about 4 days now, it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> but when I wake up it is sever but then when I get up to go workout it is much milder. When I wake up it is pretty painful which is what makes me worry. Recently I have gotten a hoarse voice and today I woke up and my sore throat is starting to get better but my tongue is sore and on the back left side of my tongue I have a bump. I recently had a cavity filled but the sore throat came before I had that done.
However, over three weeks later, I still have the sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and can now see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span>-ish bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. 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.
All my symptoms cleared up for a bit but now my sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> is back, little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> 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.
I'm on my 10th day with a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. It started as a severly sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> gunk on my tongue nor the sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. I noticed also some red bumps and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> mucous 'globs' <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
I woke up early this morning with a really sore throat, I didn't think anything of it since I've been sleeping with the windows open these past few days but I ended up looking in the mirror and I noticed 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps back there. I also feel really tired and my body feels sore. Is this strep possibly? Are there pregnancy safe home remedies I can try to cure it on my own?
About 2 months ago I got a very bad sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> with flesh colored bumps all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and there seems to be little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> areas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bumps but no fever or chills. The lymph nodes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> for 3 months post my possible exposure. I also have ongoing stomach pains <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> only. I looked and saw just one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> bump, not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
If this were to potentially be oral herpes, would I have already developed bumps/sores at the same time as the sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>/tonsils ? Or do they take a couple days to appear after the sore throat? I do not know my partners herpes status, so I am worrying. Or, would it be more likely that my oral flora is thrown out of whack from the new exposure?
I had a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, almost like it feels to have hair caught <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, i guess. Tonight i looked at my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> became scratchy, raw, with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span>, 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.
So my question is, does this sound like another STD besides HIV that would give me an inflamed red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>/tonsils, on and off sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, 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.
