That's not an easy ?: Sorry about that, but I'm certain a doctor will need to examine you to answer that question. What other physical symptoms do you have? How long has this been an issue? Any fever? Maybe mono? Maybe oral herpes? The yellow could be superficial growth of bacteria or damaged skin or it might be jaundice. So, in a nutshell this is a situation where exam is unavoidable if you want answers. Feel better! ...Read more

Pharyngitis: Difficult to understand why you were given a Rocephin shot and placed on Keflex when your strep test was negative. One can have a horrendous looking throat due to just a viral infection, mononucleosis being the most notorious. If pain is improving, then consider waiting a bit longer as it may all sort itself out. Otherwise do follow-up with your doctor now to be re-evaluated. ...Read more

While brushing my teeth, i noticed 4 red spots on the roof of my mouth near the back near my throat. What could they be?

Merely giving you a list of possibilities isn't very helpful. If you want to know for sure, see your dentist. Regardless, any lesion that remains longer than 2 weeks needs to be diagnosed! ...Read more
