Have a white spot on back of throat, right side.  No tonsils and tounge is white also?

Seeing Spots: Occasionally food particles, saliva, and bacteria may collect if their is residual tonsillar tissue post-surgical removal and form "white spots" which are debris that has hardened.

I've many spots that look like red goosebumps on both arms (mainly on the back of my upper arms). Thought it's from scratching but still can't cure.

Could consider: Keratosis pliaris, which commonly occurs on the upper arms and is basically your skin producing extra keratin around a hair follicle entrapping the follicle, and creating a small, hard,often red bump. I see that you are using a steroid cream;could try a stronger one in addition to a topical retinoid or glycolic acid.Can also try long hot baths, scrubbing arms with stiff brush or exfoliating sponge ...Read more

Recently, I have noticed pale white round patches on the tongue, which are bumpy. A milky white spot on the side of tongue. Bad acid reflux. Pls help.

Tongue patches: This really requires examination. There are "normal" papillae on your tongue which may become coated, especially with reflux disease and bacterial or fungal colonization. Milky white spots wipe off in fungal infection. However, in some cases, there are "geographic" patches (called geographic tongue) which can and do colonize bacteria and fungus. A dentist or oral surgeon should evaluate. ...Read more

Acute pharyngitis: You have a 'sore throat' or what we call acute pharyngitis. Even though you don't have tonsils, you can still get 'Strep' as well as any other number of infections (viruses mostly).

Tonsils are actually part of the immune system, but sometimes they are removed-ask doc if Q ...Read more
