White area in the back of my throat, but no sore throat
The past couple of days I've been dealing with what I believe is a small cold. It started three days ago with just a slight runny nose, but mostly just congestion and which gradually got worse. Finally, today, my congestion has mostly cleared up; however, I have a white patch area in the back of my throat. I don't have any pain, but a slight discomfort.
I was thinking this might just be because my throat was irritated from my sinuses draining over night. I'm concerned that now I will get a sore throat, or worse... strep throat.
Do you think that this is only because my throat is irritated from the drainage?
