Alright let me relapse whats been going on.

2 days before I left for chile to be an exchange student (16 yrs old) I started becoming very congested. I have been here for 22 days and finally the congestion went away. But recently in the past week my tonsils and throat became swollen...And that went away with pencillin (almost...It´s going away).

However, today I looked in the mirror. I noticed like 3 or 4 sores under my arms all over the place (underarms- both arms). They are not the prettiest things ever and they don´t hurt very bad at all. I have been watching it...

Is this normal?

I´m freaked.

Persistent throat pain due to throat ulcers could be due to stress induced apthous ulcers or pharyngeal infections (viral or bacterial origin).

If infections are ruled out , a course of steroids can help in reducing the inflammation and helping in quick recovery.

Consult your doctor for a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
