You may also see little dark-red, almost purple, spots on the back of the roof of the mouth and on the uvula (the little "punching bag" that hangs from the center of the back of the mouth). The tongue may be very red with little white spots, like a strawberry (the "strawberry tongue") or white with little red spots, like a strawberry dipped in white chocolate. Sometimes a person with strep throat will have very bad breath, but this is not always true.

Pharyngitis: I would suspect that you are suffering from pharyngitis an inflammation of the lymphoid tissues and lining of the mouth. There is a ring of these tissues that line the back of the mouth... tonsils, adenoids and base of the tongue. It is likely a reaction to a bacterial or viral infection. You should see a MD to rule out a Strep. infection which left untreated can lead to mere serious health issues ...Read more
