A member asked:

I am experiencing swollen tonsils (quality: white or yellowish spots on tonsils) , difficulty swallowing, lump in throat and gagging.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Doctor can examine: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep)... but definitely needs an exam if having difficulty swallowing and gagging.
