I'm having a cold, sore throat. I looked at back of mouth saw small clusters of little white bumps. Am I having herpes outbreak? I had oral sex 2-3 weeks ago. Picture uploaded on my "Health Files".

It's possible

Adenoidectomy
I can't seem to access your picture so I'm going blindly. Canker sores are a virus and can affect the mouth, check out herp angina as well. These are often clusters in the back of the throat and painful. Often come with flu like symptoms.

The oral HPV

Human papilloma virus (HVP) is the responsilbe agent for causing >70% of cervical cancers, also anal and oral cancers as well. Here is an example picture of the HPV causing ulceration/cancer of the tongue--it is not pretty. Oral gonorrhea causes nasty looking throat can pose significant public health concern, but it is not a cause of cancer. Live well, live safely drdiyaldas. Good luck

I have white puss specs on the back of my throat and I have a picture what could this be? My throat is very sore

Strep Throat

Pharynx
You are describing perfectly a severe throat infection known as Strep throat. This infection needs to be treated with antibiotics and if not treated can lead to significant health problems.

Sore throat x3 days. Lymph nodes feel swollen. I can't swallow or eat anything. Slight fever/fatigue. Picture uploaded.

Strep

Dogs
You should be checked out for strep! The reason to treat strep is to protect the heart from rheumatic fever , not the sore throat part. Your body will get over the strep by itself by forming antibodies to the strep but it is almost identical to a Protien in the heart which it can then attack about 3 months later. If you destroy the strep with antibiotics your body does not make these antibodies

I have very painful sore throat. No mucus or any fever. I can see little red ulcers in a picture I took. What could it be? What should I take?

Possible viral.

Pharynx
If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a strep throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day. A mixture of chamomile tea with honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.

Could it be healthy to be hoarse after having throat cancer?

Expected

Cancer
not healthy- but it is expected. after going through treatment for throat cancer- i.e. radiation therapy especially- one can have some problems as a side effects of the radiation- i.e. dry mouth , hoarseness etc. if you only have surgery-not radiation etc- and if the hoarseness just happens after surgery not before- you should f/u with your ENT and have him/her examined your throat

Could it be healthy that my bf's semen slightly burned the back of my throat?

I do not know!

Sperm
Semen intrinsically would not burn the back of your throat. But you could have acquired an infection. Other possibilities exist, but it depends on how quickly burning occured-if immediate no infection. If a day or two later, more likely!
