Sore on the back of my throat

I noticed yesterday that my throat hurt whenever I swallowed any saliva in my mouth. So I felt around with my tongue and found a small bumb on the top of my mouth (above my throat). I did a search online and read that this could be a cold sore. Is this true? Or could it be something else? Because I have never heard of sores on the back of the throat before. Well, thank you in advance.

ps. if it IS a cold sore, how would I treat it if its that far back in my mouth?

I know this is a really stupid suggestion but you should just go and see the doctor... It's not really an embarrasing subject

Re: Sore on the back of my throat

It sounds like it could be a cold sore. Is your uvula (the bally thing that hangs in the back of your throat) really inflamed? Also, if you have white spots on your throat or tongue you probably have strep throat.
