I think I might have strep throat because I took a picture of the back of my throat and it looks like it but I'm also nauseous and have a bad headache?

I think I might have strep throat because I took a picture of the back of my throat and it looks like it but I'm also nauseous and have a bad headache?

Not specific: The tissues of your throat are the entering gateway for any germs and their response to them is not specific to strep. Most throat infections are viral but testing can easily sort them out. The symptoms you cite are common to both viral and strep. See a doc to decide which is present. ...Read more

I have a sore throat so I took a picture to see if it was red but turns out I have huge holes in one of my tonsils that weren't there before?

I have a sore throat so I took a picture to see if it was red but turns out I have huge holes in one of my tonsils that weren't there before?

It's normal.: I quite an answer below: The tonsils gather up rubbish, germs and stuff and push them out through those "holes". Yes, it smells AWFUL, but it's waste material that needs to be expelled because if it stays in the body, it could cause infections and other problems. They are doing their jobs. Good luck! ...Read more

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.: 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. ...Read more

Weird bumps on back of tongueThey form a V, but towards my throat there is many bumps. Throat is sore from drainage. Could this be a STD? Picture posted

Probably not: Unable to see your picture, but the "weird bumps" you are seeing on the back of your tongue are most likely the circumvallate papillae that form a v in the back of the tongue. Most people are not aware that they are there because they are so far back, but it is a normal part of your tongue! Sore throat is probably from post nasal drainage & not STD, but if it continues get a throat culture. ...Read more
