What does it mean if I have white pimples in back of throat?

White pimples

Neck-throat
Hello, the white pimples n the back of your throat sound like tonsilliths. These are food particles that get stuck in the tonsil tissues. They harden and make your tonsils look like they are infected. Under these tonsil pimples is a cavity or crevice that may be inflamed and infected. Gargle with water after every meal. This helps to clear these white pimples. Also see your doctor.

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?

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.

White things on the throat sound like there could be a throat infection, especially if one has a sore throat and some swollen lymph node glands in the neck. A primary care doctor can evaluate to see what the problem is, and prescribe antibiotics if there is a strep throat infection.

I have a very sore throat and sores on my uvula that look like pimples that need to be popped?

Don't pop them.

Uvula
If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a streph throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day. A mixture of chamomile tea with honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.

Throat scope show something pimple-like in throat. Throat pain for a month. (Only when talking). CT scan cleared. Caused?

Infection

Computed_tomography
You had a throat scope and ct scan. You had pain for a month. This could be an infection or even fungal process like overgrowth. The pimple Would be consistent with strep throat. Cultures would be positive. Ct scan is negative so lymph nodes are probably not swollen. Perhaps antibiotics and re-evaluate after if pain still present. Seek ENT doctor.

Why do I red pimples inside my mouth (under tongue and tonsils) and throat for over 4 days? It hurts to swallow and talk. Help?

Virus

Tongue
It is most likely a virus that most people get as a child. It is very painful. The only treatment is symptomatic and it can last a week.
