Sore throat, white color tongue, raised red bumps. Earlier had strep throat. Worried

I recently had strep throat 3 weeks ago. I developed a sore throat Tuesday afternoon with a whitish color on my tongue and raised red bumps that look like big taste buds. I tested negative for strep Wednesday but was given another antibiotic. When I looked up pictures on the Internet oral herpes came up however I don t think that a possibility I m now worried. I also have a child who tested + for flu b this week.

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you have sore throat for which you have taken antibiotics.. you have coated tongue.. which is common with toxins produced by the organisms.. especially enteric organism (do you have any gastrointestinal symptoms)?..
herpes infection occurs at the mucocutaneous junction.. like at the angle of mouth, near the opening of nastril..
any ways see your physician for the following investigation and treatment..
CBC, ESR, throat swab culture and sensitivity, widal test(coated tongue)..
based on that you need to take antibiotics.. salt water gargling.. start multivitamin with zinc..
all the very best..
