Cause for painful red spots at back of throat, tongue? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I am having throat problems from a couple of months.. red spots on the back of the throat and also back of the tongue..
Are the spots painful?
the doctors prescribed antibiotics for it thinking it might be strep throat
yes throat feels raw and dry..
Does it disappear completely and then reappear?
and the results came out negative
no it is always there
yes if i stop anti biotics.. the pain increases and tonsils swell up..
feel feverish and fatigued
Though your throat swab came negative, it seems infective with your symptoms.
It could be viral too.
Are you following me?
When was the throat swab done?
blood test was done a week ago
What all medicines are you taking now?
Since how many days are you on the same?
Since it was from few months, did you take any medicines for this before?
different anti biotics
clauvanac and another
From the details I have got, it does not seem to be a bacterial infection. If it was, it should have disappeared within a few courses of antibiotics.
there is immunace forte prescribed as of now
should i stop the anti biotics?
Stopping of antibiotics can only be decided by your treating doctor.
I believe you would have already consulted many ENT doctors.
is that a cause maybe?
Are you on medication for that?
not now.. that was about 4 months back
Reflux oesophagitis can present with oral ulcers.
In my opinion antibiotics would not help you. You would be better without antibiotics. But it should be stopped only after consulting with your treating doctor. Again, you also need to consult a gastroenterologist to see the present status of GERD.
Are you following me?
ok.. but i have no symptoms of GERD anymore.. my appetite is very good too..
That is fine. But just to make sure, that the spots is not related to GERD.
ok.. if its not... could it be related to any other oral complication like herpes or yeast infection?
With the said symptoms, it does not relate to yeast.
Herpes can be said only after a proper examination of mouth.
ok any tests i can undergo for the same?
There is no test to determine whether it is herpes.
It can be determined by seeing.
ok.. i will go visit my doctor again for the same..
but 2 months is a long time for it to still be there
anything i shd ask the doctor ro check?
You have to mention that, you have undergone several antibiotic course, and that it has not changed a bit.
You should also show the reports of swab test and blood tests.
Hope I had been able to guide you.
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
and one more thing.. without the antibiotics the pain increases again
Please do not worry. It should get better with supplementation.
Please continue with the medications you are on, until you XXXXXXX your doctor.
I am sure they would be able to handle it once they see all the reports.
Do you have any other queries?
Hope I have cleared your doubts.
Thanks for consulting me.
Have a nice evening!!
Bye for now.
