Thread red,irritated,swollen,painful while swallowing and sneezing,pain connected to ears,white bump on right side inside by uvula

so im having a problem with my throat . its looks red and irritated and something feels swolen. it hurts to swallow , yawn, and sneeze , and the pain seems somehow connected to my ears. i complained to my mom, and she shined a flashlight down my throat and said that there seemed to be a white bump on the right side, by my uvula. i think i might go to the doctor in a few days if the pain doesnt go away, but i was wondering if i had strep of tonsilitis or something like that. thanks for the help!

Hello sugarbear7897. These symptoms could be caused by a variety of illnesses. Some of these illnesses include strep, mononucleosis, sinus disease, etc. I would advise you to go see your physician for a rapid strep test as untreated strep can progress and cause rheumatic fever. The connection to the ears sounds like it could be eustachian tube dysfunction due to sinus disease which can also explain all of your symptoms as well.

Be well, Dr. Kimberly
