Strange bumps/blisters and extreme sore throat

About 10 days ago I started to get a bit of a sore throat, about 4 days in it started becoming very bad, so bad that it hurts to even swallow saliva. About 3 days ago these blisters/bumps started appearing on my throat. I've been to the doctor but he told me it was "probably just something viral" sent me home. I just want some answers, so if anyone has experienced or seen this before if really appreciate it.

Welcome to e health forum.

You are having a inflammatory reaction due to infection or it could be due to physiological stress due to overworking and undernourishment.

Keep yourself well hydrated, take proper rest and have a balanced diet. This should not only help you get relief from your symptoms, but it will also prevent such events in the future. Use of anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen (advil) available over the counter can also be of help.

If your symptoms are very troubling, then you may consult your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.
