sore throat/white spots on back of throat....?
hi everyone. I have been suffering from a cold since Tuesday. symptoms included stuffy nose, dry/sore throat, and minor ear aches. but then on Friday and Saturday, I spent most of both days in bed as my sore throat worsened and the ear aches got worse. sometimes it feels like my upper throat is swollen or something, and it's painful to talk/swallow. my left lymphnode might be a little bit swollen, but I'm not sure.
this morning I noticed white spots at the back of my throat. what do you think? is this something that I should see if it improves a little bit today? I'm on some meds right now (and have been for days), so my pain isn't quite as bad, so I wonder if it will get better? or should I go to the doctor ASAP?
thanks for any advice you can give me.
