A 27-year-old female asked:

my daughter was diagnosed with the croup this morning. now i have white spot on left tonsil, is it adult croup or strep throat? should i see a dr?

Hard to say: The actual adult equivalent of croup is voice loss/laryngitis. A white spot on a tonsil is not specific to a particular illness and could be a benign tonsil stone. If you have no fever or sore throat I would ignore it.

Insect bites: It could be any insect bite. See the doctor if it does not clear up in few days. If it is itchy you can try Hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth.

Mouth breathing: You may breath through your mouth while you sleep, which dries out your mouth and throat. With a dry mouth, certain bacteria can proliferate which causes an odor. Try brushing your tongue as well as your teeth, and when you use mouth rinse, gargle it into the back of your throat as well.
