Strep? The last 3 days I've had loss of appetite and low fever-99.5 f. Today I have a mild sore throat. Glands not swollen. I've never had strep before.
Was treated for strep throat 3 weeks ago. Tongue still painful now and i noticed a growth way in back on tongue. Loss of taste. Burning on tongue.
