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

Pharynx
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

I have white bumps on the back of my throat. They seem like a pimple. I can pop them with my finger nail. What could this be?

Tonsilliths?

Neck-throat
This sounds like tonsilliths. The only permanent cure is tonsillectomy, however, one safe way to get them out if they hurt is to use a water pick.

I woke up with a lump behind my ear at the jaw. It has been burning. soar throat. Times of burning throw out my body. Burning in ear. No ear infection?

See your doctor

Head-jaw
Lump behind the ear, sore throat, ear burning suggest active inflammation if not infection. Throat infections can cause these symptoms. You should see your doctor. An examination is essential for diagnosis.

Dots on the back of the tongue are normal;larger taste buds. If you are worried have your dentist or oral surgeon/MD take a look. 5 min for piece of mind. Go West ham United even though they are being relegated.

Visited an ENT for reoccurring swollen, sore throats, and step throat. He paid me no attention and said come back. I decided to go to an ENT because I want to have my tonsils removed. Since childhood I have suffered from reoccurring sore throats, strep th

I'm sorry you had this bad experience. It sounds like you have more than an adequate history and continuation of symptoms to justify the procedure. If you were dissatisfied with the time spent with your ENT, or perceived an unwillingness to offer you a fair explanation of his rationale for not offering surgery as an alternative, I personally would seek a second opinion elsewhere. Before getting another ENT opinion, it may be worthwhile to discuss your problems and concerns with the prospective physician over the phone to assess his receptivity to offering you a tonsillectomy.

Hi, I am having soar throat with small white patch on tonsil. I feel irritation which extendeds to back of ear. Can I take amoxilin 250?

Go see MD

Head-ear
there are only a few that can cause exudative pharyngitis as you described. Obviously one of them is strep. Resistance to penicillin now is high, the dose you have is low, and due to possible complications of this infection, it is best you are treated right, and right the first time.
