See your doc: It's not certain what's causing your symptoms, but strep pharyngitis could certainly be the cause. Your doc can perform an exam, culture your throat, check for strep with a rapid test in the office, and prescribe antibiotics if needed. In the meantime warm salt water gargles will help lessen swelling and pain until you can see you doc. Ask for a same day appointment for acute illness.Urgent care2 ...Read more

Red tonsils: The redness is a sign of inflammation. Tonsils are a lymph gland that can swell with any type of infection. They trap dead/dying white blood cells. The blood is likely from the raw surface due to swelling - and the pus is likely from a low grade viral infection you have. Are you running a fever? I would monitor it for several days. If it continues you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Most likely dryness: Small spots of blood especially if from both sides are often from dryness, viral illness, or allergy. All these conditions can also, cause excessive drainage. Start with salt water rinse then follow with saline gel, or even better, sesame oil 3-4 drops to the bloody side 2-3 times daily. If these suggestions don't help then seek medical care. ...Read more

Virus: Viral upper respiratory infections usually start in the throat, spread to the nose and in some cases down to the windpipe and bronchial tubes. If symptoms last longer than 10 days or with fever, shaking chills, sweats or worsening cough, antibiotics and a check up for pneumonia are advisable. Until then a mild cough syrup and gargling with warm salt water is soothing. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for mild fever helps. ...Read more

Thrush: A sore throat with white spots and sores on your gums sounds like thrush. Blood tests can rule out some but not all STDs. A specific test is necessary to rulr out chlamydia and gonorrhea. The other possibility is a viral infection. You need to discuss these possibilities with the person who you have been seeing to know which is going on in your case. Hope this helps. ...Read more
