Few days ago I had symtoms resembling sore throat - pain when swallowing on the left side - but wheh I saw my throat I noticed that besides being too red there is a single white spot there. The spot is not even in the throat but on the left side of the arch surroinding the tongue and the throat. It's not a lump but just a spot and it is still there. When swallowing I feel a slight irritation at the back of tongue too - at the area where the spot is. I have no other symptoms like fever or cold.
Hi - I noticed this was posted quite a while ago, and you've hopefully recovered by now.
What you describe sounds like Strep Throat: white, wet spots or lumps on the back of the throat and uvula, that pop or run when you yawn or touch them?. Usually it clears itself in a few days, or with the help of an over-the-counter strep medication. In severe cases, some doctors will recommend a short course of antibiotics, in case the infection spreads to the adenoids or tonsils.
I too have this,,about every 2-3 months,,It is one spot,,I take a platic skewer and remove it,,Same place as you said,, it is gross but it smell pretty bad. A doctor said it was a pearl. I am now trying to find out more info. Some times it will dis lodge during activity and I spit it out ,,its small like a bb. This last time it was way bigger. It is not puss from infection(I think). Its alway in the same spot.
your symptoms sound like mine.. only mine usually occur every month.. (usually that time of the month)only this time i had a headache for 2 days straight and i felt really sick as well as having hot spurs and shivers... my throat is really sore and feels really big.. there are spots in the back of my tongue and throat, only on the left side.. it seems to hurt up my jaw to my left ear when i swallow too. This is affecting my school too, im only 15..we did think it has summit to do with my period at 1st but how can it affect my immune system?? can anyone think what is wrong?? thanks x
