It may be thrush: or a yeast overgrowth. Your doc can diagnose and treat. Peace and good health.

See your PCP: The white spot in your throat can be perplexing. Diseases associated with white spots in the throat should not be ignored, because they can be a significant risk to your health. See a doctor if you have these spots in your throat, particularly if you also have a fever and especially if you smoke. See your PCP for exam and yes, quit smoking.
