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...: 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.

Meanwhile use lozenges and Tylenol. ...Read more

I had white bumps on the back of my throat and picked them off. It bled really bad and my whole throat hurts. What is iy?

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
