It could be anything from a simple viral infection to the first stage of infection with hsv (primary herpetic gingivostomatitis), to a bacterial infection, and on and on.

Possible, But...: 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! ...Read more

Probable virus: This is most likely the beginning of a viral upper respiratory tract infection which usually goes on to a head cold and runs its course in several days or a week without any specific treatment. However if the sore throat worsens and there is no head cold symptoms, a rapid throat culture is recommended to look for strep throat which requires antibiotic treatment. Meanwhile use lozenges and Tylenol. ...Read more

Fluids, rest: You probably have a virus, and antibiotics won't help. So congestion medication (like tylenol sinus) will help, but get plenty of rest and fluids. ...Read more

White bumps to throa: The white bumps to your throat are what we call "pharyngeal exudates". These can occur from infections, food particles, or even be a natural result of our bodies secretions. These exudates are adherent to the soft tissues of the throat and when tampered with, can disrupt the underlying tissue at which it is attached. Best to leave them there when you see them and have it checked out by your doc. ...Read more
