Please stop: Please stop trying to diagnose yourself. If you have Herpangina you would probably also have an acute fever. You can't see the back of your Uvula without putting a mirror behind it. Your symptoms suggest an infection, so go see your Family Physician. Let him/her do the diagnosis and treatment plan. You'll be glad you did.
