i have been having some problems with my mouth and throat, i have a white coated tongue (back section) and at the beginning of the year i started getting a few white patches on the roof of my mouth directly above where it is on my tongue, i scrapped them off each time i see them and eventually started getting little red pimple type bumps on the roof of my mouth. i didnt see gp at this time as the white patches stopped going on the roof and the red bumps seemed to of settled down. but two and a half weeks ago i started getting a sore throat, red bumps were back on roof of mouth and a couple on my uvola and i can also see a red patch right at back of throat on left side. i see gp and was given nystin. while taking this i my sore throat played up more for a few days it was horrid to swallow the pain was all on left side then it swapped to the right side. until eventually swallowing went back to normal. the white patches on my tongue were getting visably better and the inflamation on my roof was completly clear, then nystin run out and my tongue is more patchy and roof of my mouth has once again gone inflamed with little red bumps. i can still see one at back of throat and on uvelo. my throat feels dry quite a lot and i wake through night to drink, when laying down i can feel phylem going down my throat also, and when i first get up it feels quite thick. ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCED THIS?

What you probably have is a condition called Thrush. Have you been taking any antibiotics lately? You will need more Nystatin...

Look into oral thrush and its leading causes and treatments. It sounds a lot like a mild case.

You may have a yeast infection in your mouth.....if the other stuff isn't working call your Dr up and ask for Diflucan. IF its a yeast infection this stuff will clear it up.

thank you , i will be seeing my gp on monday.
i was given nystin for expected thrush as i take asthma pumps twice a day (they can cause thrush) but although it started getting better the course run out before completly gone so its just returned to how it started again . would thrush have caused the sore throat and other red pimple spots on the roof of my mouth then?

For sure it is the Ashtma pump causing the Thrush. Its recomended that you rinse your mouth out each time you use it to help prevent the mouth problem.Thrush can cause the red pimple bumps also .You need more Nystatin and I would also ask for a Diflucon pill thats a strong anti fungal med that will help clear the Thrush up. Then make sure you rinse every time you use your asthma pump.

YES! I have had thrush from taking antibiotics after having my tonsils out. It was horrible. My throat had just started to feel better from the surgery...then I got thrush. It was excruciating! What you are describing fits thrush perfectly. Call your doctor and ask for something like Diflucan.

i see gp last week, he said it does not look like thrush but took a swab test which i will be getting results back next week. they seem more like little pimples that are in my mouth, on the roof and even the tongue looks like pimples covered in a white stuff.
sore throat went away for a while but for past 2 days i have like a little pinching feeling at back of throat when i swallow. (my husband has a bad bad cold virus so could be going down with that)?

the doctor says he thinks i have a virus and it will probably clear in a couple of weeks, but ive already had it for quite some time so with no treatment or knowledge of what it is, i cant see it clearing on its own.
doctor said it does not show the charateristics of anything sinister, so if swab test comes back negative for thrush he will see if it settles if not give me some mouth wash that the dentists use for irritated mouths.

i have had an outbreak of pimpley spots come up on face and scalp behind ears etc... i told doctor this and he asked if i have any on wrists or fingertips??? any ideas what thats about?
