Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection photo


Avatar m tn I see a white colour patch in throat behind the back of my uvula( Photo attached) and am scared . I had shown to a ENT specialist and he gave some antibiotics and told me not to worry about it. I have attached the photo . Does the back of throat looks normal ? I have stretching my throat a lot to see it. Can this irritation and discomfort be the cause ? Is there any thing serious you note or it looks normal?
Avatar f tn Lots of us tend to get those. Have you had a sore throat, ear, or sinus infection lately? That can cause it. It could also be an ulcer, caused by food allergies, spices, stress, etc. You would be best off to see a doctor to rule out any sort of bad infection.
Avatar f tn Then you could have an infection or strep throat. If not it may just be a sore and generally nothing to worry about. The high fever (>101) is the big thing to watch for. They actually state a high fever is >103. But if your fever got up to 101 I would see a doctor if you see pus spots or it is very sore and you have no other symptoms. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn It does look like it may be an infection and they can do a throat swab to find out what is going on. Hope the appointment goes well.
Avatar f tn I had the sore throat and tickle up until a few days ago, but when looking at my throat it seems to be covered in small lumps, I have uploaded a photo of this below, can anyone help? Thank you as I'm very worried. https://ibb.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms can also occur due to a chronic throat infection, which could be due to a post nasal drip. Try warm saline garles.That may provide some relief. You should seek consultation with an ENT specialist .That will help diagnose the cause. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn i was a bit sceptical, he offered to do a strep throat test but he didnt think it was strep throat as my throat is fine, so we didnt do the test. However over the last 3 days i have developed red areas on the inside of my lips and also above my upper teeth, not red around my teeth but further up. its also quite inflamed. i still have the sores at the back of my throat but my toncit area is now also red. im worried of gingervitis (sorry abou that spelling!
Avatar n tn This is because HIV is normally present in low levels in the throat which are not sufficient enough to cause infection. Secondly, the lining of the mouth and throat are very resistant to viral infections such as HIV, so infection is unlikely if they are healthy. But, if there is bleeding wounds or gums in the HIV positive person’s mouth or on their lips, the virus may transfer through the blood into the mucous membranes of the other person’s genitals or into any cuts or sores they may have.
Avatar m tn t itch, and they are nowhere else but in this photo I have been very sick this week, which is unusual for me. I had a sore throat, sinus infection, 100 fever with a bumpy acne like rash to my cheeks, chin, and throat that popped up then went away in a day or so. Bad, bad headache, and very thirsty. I didn't cough much, no stomach upset or diarreah.
Avatar m tn I am just worried now, since I took pictures of my nose and throat and they still look red and bloody. I will have to wait until tomorrow to go see him. What do the pictures suggest? I know I may be overreacting, but I have panic attacks and become worried at the slightest hint of problems. Anyone? Here is a picture of the left nostril which blood came out of:
1355423 tn?1277185586 The injury with the fish bone, could have caused a swelling and inflammation in the throat. There could further be a super added infection in the throat, this could have caused the 'cobble stone' appearance in the throat. You will need to consult your doctor for an evaluation. He will prescribe antibiotics and anti inflammatory medications. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC Acetaminophen for relief from pain.
Avatar m tn The doctor used a local anesthetic spray to spray on the mouth and throat of the HIV patient. I placed the anesthetic spray photo in[email protected] . Unfortunately the doctor took the same spay and used it on my throat within 1-2 minutes. He used for more than 4 to 5 times within 1-2 minutes. According to me, the straw of the anesthetic spray might be contaminated. When I asked the doctor, he told me that it is the practice they use for all.
Avatar m tn 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. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar m tn It is usually caused by candida albicans, which is a fungal infection. They can occur as a consequence to throat infection or sometimes steroid inhalers are known to promote their growth. You can discuss this with your doctor when you meet him. In the meantime you can try warm salt water gargles and betadine mouthwashes. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Hi just a quick question i feel like im gonna cough when i breath in and my throat feels weird all the time i have a photo i just took of my throat i just feel like something is wrong with me im scared i sometimes find it hard to breath
Avatar m tn It appears to be deep within the skin, but it does feel slightly raised. I had strep throat a month ago and received a Bicillin shot in this same buttocks, but the bump seems a good deal inferior to the Bicillin injection shot. My immediate fear is Liposarcoma. Is there anything else that this could be? I obviously plan on seeing a dermatologist as soon as possible, however, I am currently scared to death. Is there anything I should be doing in the meantime as I wait to see a specialist?
Avatar f tn html that has a photo that indicate what I thought was just a protruding epiglottis, as lingual thyroid... (My throat in fact is in fact looks like that photo - the second one on the link).... Is it normal for the epiglottis to be visible just by opening the mouth or perhaps it's instead an indication of lingual thyroid? Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn I have had an ulcer-like formation (whiteish) just behind the right tonsil for nearly two weeks and today two small puss pimples appeared on the right tonsil, which is a little red. I don't have any fever and only have a very mild sore throat. I went to the GP today and he said he could not see the ulcer-like thing, only that my tonsil has a slight infection.
Avatar f tn White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis 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. If the white patches are removed can see red spots beneath. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and ask your son to gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn I have a strange, visible lump in my throat. It started out a couple months ago and it was pretty tiny, and didn't have any particular color to it. Now it's much larger and kind of red. When I touch it, it hurts (like tender or sore). Otherwise, it isn't noticeable to me. I had forgotten about it actually until I was taking a beauty mask off my throat area today and noticed it. The lump is hard, and feels as if it is under the skin.
Avatar m tn I’ve had a sore throat for the last few days. Don’t feel terrible, but my throat hurts and am a bit run down. I noticed this red bump/sore towards the bottom of my throat below my tonsils. Any idea what this could be? Is it common to get sores like this with a common cold? Here is a photo
Avatar f tn about 1 month ago had a viral infection, and had little fever highest being 99.5, and it resolved after 10 days and it was on and off fever only felt it during the afternoon or before sleep... yes went to the doctor or nurse twice for this... they did strep test negative (Red spot on my tonsil for a month( it varied on how bright it got)_ last week after walking in the cold and came back with little blood in the phelgm and had dried mucus in nose....
Avatar m tn For a few years now every few months i have experienced an attack of back pain stomach pain with vomiting fever and at times a severe rash over my body that doctors and myself are very concerned about. I have uploaded a photo of the rash, (not great quality) but i wonder if any one has any knowledge of what could be happening. Doctors for years have done all kinds of tests xrays, endoscopoly blood tests the only thing left i a colonscopy.
1681327 tn?1304922825 I am a little concerned with this white thing in the back of my throat. It almost looks like a large tooth sticking up behind my throat. This is not one of those little white food clumps, but something that is apart of throat...Any ideas? This is a little gross, but I was able to get a picture of it, so I will post it as my main photo for now.
