Possible

Pharynx
There is no way to tell whether this is Strep without an exam and throat swab for testing. Good luck.

White spots on tonsils, strep throat or tonsilitis?

Could be

Strep_throat
White spots on the tonsils could be food particles. The only way to be sure of Strep throat is a throat culture. Tonsillitis is a specific diagnosis made by a physician when the tonsils in the throat are red and enlarged and painful. Strep throat does not necessarily indicate tonsil involvement. Obviously you need an objective diagnosis by a specialist.

I have had a sore throat for the past three days with no other symptoms. There are no white spots or signs of strep throat. What should I do?

Comfort measures

Diphtheria
Your sore throat, if unaccompanied by a fever or pus at the ite, is likely a mild viral pharyngitis. Argyle with warm salt water, take Motrin for inflammation, and immediately see your doctor if you develop fever or difficulty swallowing, drooling, or increased pain.

Represents

Streptococcal_infection
there are many bacteria and viruses that can be responsible for this. From your tests we know it is not strep or Mono. an excellent OTC therapy you can get is Silver Shield from the health food store. There is no bacteria resistant to silver and This high tech form shuts down all active viruses very quickly. take 1 tsp gargle, swish and swallow four times daily until problem clerared.

My daughter has strep symptoms. Headaches spots on throat very red very painful had fever but tests negative for strep. What else is possible?

Most are viral

Rash
The major entry portal for germs to the body is the mouth. Germs that come in on food or contaminated fingers touch the tonsils on their way in & can adhere & begin to grow,producing infection. Most sore throats are various viruses that will self heal over time. The main problem comes in assuring that the kid takes in enough fluid to keep from dehydrating.

Sore throat it stopped hurting so I don't think it's strep.But I have a white spot and red spots.. I got my tonsils taken.. Could it be a certain std?

Symptom changes

Streptococcal_infection
Strep and other forms of sore throat may diminish in severity without treatment. That doesn't alter the potential for complications of untreated strep to occur. Oropharyngeal gonorrhea can also present as a sore throat. The physical appearance can often aid an experienced examines in diagnosis but often throat swabs and lab tests are required for accurate Dx.
