Post sore throat ras: This is likely guttate psoriasis that occurs after some strep infections. Generally this resolves on its own. If the skin lesions continue to spread, become more painful or develop red streaks, take her to her pediatrician. ...Read more

I got bumps in the back of my throat they don't hurt but they are kind of itchy and I can feel swelling. What could it be ?

Glands: I'm guessing your referring to on your tonsils or back of tongue. The mouth and its cells are very vascular and secretory cell clusters. Immunity and fighting infection happen here as well as antibody production as well. This is one of the first lines of infection as a foreign entity enters our system. Itchy probably means irritated and that they "saw" something that stimulated them. ...Read more

Duration?: If these symptoms are not getting worse or have been present for less than 10 days, they are likely from a viral infection . But the ear itching points to allergy. If you are not feeling ill, just give it a few more days. If the problem persists beyond 2 weeks or are getting worse, contact your doctor. ...Read more

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area.  What could it be?  Are they related?

Possible: Since viral infections can cause the sore throat and a skin rash, they may be related. On the other hand, I would expect a more generalized skin involvement when a viral infection is involved. If this has lasted for more than 10 days or been getting worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

Woke up with red spots on 1 leg. Next day more red spots and on both lower legs. Spots are itchy, slight bump in center. Dry, irritant throat @ night.

Possible reaction: It is difficult to assess without seeing the lesions but it can represent a bite or even represent a reaction to a viral upper respiratory infection. I would see a physician so that they can perform the appropriate evaluation or tests for this if it does not improve. ...Read more
