Sore Throat: I usually don't use Keflex for strep throat. Go old fashioned Penicillin or Amoxicillin works great if you are not allergic. But viral infections like mononucleosis (kissing disease) and other viruses can cause the same symptoms and are not treated by antibiotics. Try some cloraseptic spray or lozenges 3-4 times a day and honey 2 tablespoons every 2 hours can also be soothing, get rechecked. ...Read more

What causes a sore throat, mouth yellow in color, thick phlegm in throat? This has been going on for over a month.

That's a long time: Mono is from the EBV virus, and can cause swollen glands and big tonsils. Strep throat can do the same thing, but strep throat needs antibiotics. Some other infections can cause similar symptoms. Sinus infections can drip cloudy mucus down the throat. This all means that a trip to the doctor would be wise. Be sure to tell the doctor if one has recreational activities like oral sex. ...Read more

I just woke with sore throat and area behind uvula swollen and wondered what causes this? The swollen area is so enlarged it flaps when I exhale.

It is likely infecti: Sore throat is frequently caused by the head-cold virus which usually resolves in 4-5 days with the help of tylenol (acetaminophen) pills and lots of warm liquids.
If you develop fever or enlarged lymph glands, it can also be strept throat infection (bacterial infection). This requires antibiotics use and a visit to your family doctor unless you get well with tylenol (acetaminophen) in another 1-2 days. ...Read more

Currently have a sore throat, and tried to check if I had strep. For the first time I saw me epiglotti- yes, im completely sure that's what I saw, not the uvula. I have never seen my epiglottis before, im not sure if I can normally. Concerning?

Sounds ok: Some people can see their epiglottis. As long as a person does not have an epiglottis infection or inflammation, it's ok to be able to see the epiglottis. It's a pink little flap that points upward from behind the base of the tongue. "Epiglottitis" is inflammation or infection of the epiglottis, and causes severe breathing or severe swallowing difficulties... and of course, is a 911 emergency. ...Read more

Pharyngitis: You have a sore throat or "pharyngitis" which can be caused by any number of viruses or bacteria. Strep is probably the most famous bacteria and should be screened for. Smoking is a risk factor for these infections because of the toxicities of smoke. Hope u can quit.

I have a very sore throat and sores on my uvula that look like pimples that need to be popped?

Don't pop them.: If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a streph 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.

Circumvallate papill: The large bumps are your circumvallate papilla and are normal taste buds. They are arranged in an upside down v configuration. The sore throat and the cough with bloody mucous can be either a virus or bacterial infection. If you have associated yellowish drainage with a fever I would be inclined to give you an antibiotic.
