Not necessarily: If the ulcers are on the "in" side of your lip and not on the out side of the lip, then you may have a common canker sore or aphthous ulcer.

Get a swab taken: Most sore throats are caused by viruses and therefore antibiotics do not alter the cause of the infection. However you can get a secondary bacterial infection when your immune system is lowered and therefore it is wise to see your GP so that a swab can be taken and sent to the lab (especially if your symptoms are worsening rather than improving). White spots could possibly indicate a strep throat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep).
