My husband thinks he has strep throat because of the white bumps on his throat which he scrapped off. Does that he doesn't have strep anymore?

Strep throat

Antibiotic
No. First of all, he should be diagnosed by his doctor who will prescribe an antibiotic if he has it. Be careful with the scrapings because they maybe contagious.

Though there are several signs and symptomsfor Strep Throat, the only way to know for sure is to be tested. If you have a sore throat, regardless of the other signs and symptoms, it's a good idea to have your doctor test you.

Based on my previous question about possibly having strep throat.. I have a sore throat red swollen with white bumps them in back of throat. Mono?

Possible, But...

Strep_throat
From your description, it sounds more like Strep Throat, or tonsillitis. Mono, is possible, but at this point, but with information given, it's a stretch. You would have swollen lymph nodes of the neck, general lethargy, and not be localized to the throat area alone. Either way, you might want a culture taken to be sure, and I would see you PCP for that to be done. Best of luck to you!

I was diagnosed with a viral infection and was only given pain medication. Does that sound right? I have a sore throat and white bumps in my throat. I went to the doctor and they completed a swab and said I did not have strep throat. They also took blood

Antibiotics

Antibiotics do nothing for viral infections. Rest, fluids, and time are your best strategy (maybe chicken soup as well!). Obviously, if you are not improving, or have significant worsening, such as high fever or productive cough, then get back in to your primary care doctor. Good luck!!!

My son just recently had strep throat and now he has these large bumps on his tongue.can u tell me what us that?

Possibly normal

Tongue
If they are on the back of his tongue and they do not hurt, then this is normal. We all have several very large taste buds (called vallate papilla) on the back of our tongues, but rarely realize they are there. Now that you are "looking" because of the strep throat you are noticing these taste buds. If they do hurt then have him reevaluated by his doctor.

I had strep throat took abt and now I have red bumps on my left palm that do not itch but causes skin breaks that get scaly?

Scarletina...

Red_bumps
Some strains of strep that cause strep throat also secrete a toxin that can cause skin things to go on. One of these is exactly what you are describing - the cracking palms. You can also develop a fine red rash on the body - that's what your great-grandma used to call scarlet fever. As long as you have taken your antibiotics as directed, this will pass and you will be fine.

if the bumps are not affecting your swallowing and you feel better in general then just keep an eye on them and continue the antibiotic. if things worsen call your doctor
