Virus: Could be a secondary hermetic outbreak. Most people had the chicken pox as a child and have the herpes virus lying dormant in their system. A herpes outbreak in the mouth can look like little spots with a red ring around them. Give it a week to ten days and it may be gone. ...Read more

To doc: This could be strep throat which it is CRUCIAL to treat. Go to a doc today and get seen. If a rapid strep test is done and negative, make sure you ask them to do a culture. Rapid tests can have false negatives 10-30% of the time and a Culture should be done to be sure you don't have it. Feel better soon! The kindest docs will swab with both swabs at once, and send the culture only if rapid neg. ...Read more

Consult needed: This is hard for people today to believe, but people had dental care before dental insurance existed, and that was not that long ago. Insurance or not you have to see a dentist first, and probably a physician after. Don't worry-obamacare will save us all. ...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

Low concern: Little is known about the various side effects of taking blue-green algae, but hypersensitivity is always a heightened concern when taking natural products. Your symptoms are not consistent with anaphylaxis, but more likely with local irritation or delayed-type sensitization. An Allergist can help you to decide if this is the right supplement for you! ...Read more

Are throat pain and red spots on the roof of mouth symptom of hiv?

HIV: The symptoms of acute HIV infection may include these, but they are so non-specific that to attribute them to HIV without definitive testing would not be appropriate. If you are concerned that you may have been exposed to HIV please go and be tested. Knowing what you have early on is very important. ...Read more
