What doees a white spot inside the throat indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query.
last month my throat got infected again
there was no pain or any other symptom associated with it
I just saw a small white spot
and i asked doctor in this forum
and he advised me to do
anteceptic gargle, refrain from taking cold food/beverages and anything seet, including colored beverages
I followed these for 5 days and white spot was very negligible
so i stopped doing it
after 2 weeks again
i see white spot
on same left size
there is no pain but i feel some foreign body on left side of my throat when i swallow saliva
should i be concerned?
It seems like a bacterial infection
If you have no other symptoms you can safely ignore it
Antibiotics can be taken if it becomes severe
so is it ok to have a white spot in my tonsils all the time?
usually i tend to forget it
when i am busy
I would have given antibiotics if there were many similar spots
Since it is single spot and is not giving any trouble it can be ignored
but i feel it every 3 days a week
and am i expected to take these precautions all the time?
Is it ok if i drink cold beer?
No you do not need to take them all the time
Yes it is ok
no need to gargle all the time as well rt?
No need to gargle all the time
If it becomes worse see an ear nose throat specialist and take treatment
Till then have peace of mind
Gargling once in a while is ok
how do i know that infection is becoming severe and i should go to a doctor
If multiple spots appear
this spot increases in size
you develop pain while swallowing
Any other symptom related to it and you may see a doctor at thattime
Also, there is one more thing
while i was hospitalised the doctor tols me that the partition in my nose is slightly tilted
Everyone has deviated nasal septum
Nothing much to worry about that either
and because of this sometimes nose is not clear (one side - sometimes rt sometimes left)
No it does not
that will be all
Thanks alot for your advise
Thanks for coming on chat
Hope it helps you
