A 16-year-old female asked:

I am worried about red spots appearing all over my tongue look like ulcers but are connected to sore throat?

Dr. can check throat: New throat and tongue symptoms can be from strep throat (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 symptoms are bothersome, recurrent, or don't go away quickly (mainly to check for a treatable infection). Throat lozenges and ibuprofen can lessen pain temporarily.
