Rule out fungus: The white patches could represent a fungal infection. If you have been on antibiotics, fungus infection may occur. The fact that the white patches are also in the back of the throat suggests some type of infectious disease. My advice is to see an ENT specialist for a specific diagnosis. ...Read more

Please see Dr.: Anytime you have a sore throat for over 24 hours, it's best to see the doctor and get a strep test.

Untreated strep can lead to rheumatic fever, which can cause permanent damage to your heart and other organs. ...Read more

Mucous deposits?: Dry mouth could be the cause. You did not say whether or not your throat was sore and if not then there should not be any problem with the tonsils. I would be more concerned about the dry mouth and find out the cause. Many common prescription and otc meds can cause it and the condition could increase your risk for cavities and gum disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi it seems I have strep (lots of white spots on tonsils, 3+days of sore throat) but today I lost my voice..any thoughts on what caused that?
See a doctor: White spots on the tonsils could mean strep throat, but not necessarily. It could be a virus, and either one could cuase laryngitis with loss of voice. There are other less common infections as well that could do this. But if strep, you definitely need to know in order to get an antibiotic prescription. See your doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more
