Possibly normal: If they are on the back of his tongue and they do not hurt, then this is normal. We all have several very large taste buds (called vallate papilla) on the back of our tongues, but rarely realize they are there. Now that you are "looking" because of the strep throat you are noticing these taste buds. If they do hurt then have him reevaluated by his doctor. ...Read more

Seasonal flu: is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve, Advil) or Tylenol are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP for examination. ...Read more

Scarletina...: Some strains of strep that cause strep throat also secrete a toxin that can cause skin things to go on. One of these is exactly what you are describing - the cracking palms. You can also develop a fine red rash on the body - that's what your great-grandma used to call scarlet fever. As long as you have taken your antibiotics as directed, this will pass and you will be fine. ...Read more

Uncertain: For significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test & culture. Antibiotics are imperative for Strep Throat. Try saltwater gargles. Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey & a small amt of lemon juice helps. ...Read more
