Quick help please....sore throat...worried

Ok heres the deal. I get sore throats often. I usually get a white sore patch in the back of my mouth on the area right beside my tonsil. could this caused by sinus drainage? tonsilits? herpes? thrush

From what i know white patches usually indicate strep throat which is a bacterial infection that needs to be treated with antibiotics. I would go to the Dr. and have a strep test done. If it's negative they would be able to shed some light on what the patch is.

borders right...white patches could be strep throat or it could be thrush. More likely strep. Go to the doctor, let him/her examine you and get treated. No, I don't think you're going to die but it's got to be pretty uncomfortable for you...chris

Re: Quick help please....sore throat...worried

Its not really painful. Its almost like a canker sore, it hurts a little but when it starts to heal it dont hurt at all, just a white patch 1/8 of an inch. I had this last year and the strep culture came back negative, they said it was tonsilitis. But the question I have is i dont think its really on my tonsil, its on the soft palate area. could this be due to sinus drainage?

It could be due to anything...the fact is that we can diagnose what we can't see. I still think your best bet is to check in with your doctor and let him/her prescribe the best treatment for you. chris

Re: Quick help please....sore throat...worried

Could be strept if you are running fever. I get strept all the time! But if you aren't running fever it could be just an irritation of all the sinus you are having. Not sure where you live, but I'm in Texas and things are blooming everywhere and the pollen has been so bad that my allergies are acting up.

If you are coughing, sneezing, have itchy eyes, it's probably just allergies. If the stuff in your nose is coming out clear then you are ok, but if it's green or yellow, the you might have a sinus infection and need to see your doc. Good luck!

i just read on another thread that your soft palate is a common place to get canker sores.

It could be tonsil stones. Do a search on this site for tonsil stones and you will find alot of info on it.
