Blood Spots In Throat
Sre throat over week, right tonsil pus pockets for a few days now looks like some blood on it as well. About 3different spots what should I do?
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

I have red tonsils and throat for a month with no pain, cough, sputum or white spots on them. I put cotton on them and I saw blood and pus on it. Why?
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

Sore throat with red spots and doctor said I do not have strep or mono. This has been going on for four weeks. Blood looks good.
I have minor headaches, sore throat, a slight fever, and I cough up this yellow/white thick mucus with spots of blood once every morning.
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

Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain. ...Read more
