Re: Back of the throat Issue? (Pain while swallowing)
Have you not taken a look at it? Use a flashlight and look in a mirror. At least you'll KNOW what you see rather than feel.
If you had an allergy, it would have gone by now, so I think it's something you've picked up via hand to mouth...meaning a virus or bacterial infection possibly.
It could be strep, so just remember that it can be contagious. Salt rinses are a good idea as are taking antibacterial lozenges. If it doesn't go away in another day or so, do get it swabbed. You may need antibiotics.
Once this is over, change your toothbrush as well....and keep your fingers out of your mouth ;-)
It's all a matter of perspective!
