Brief Answer:
It is not from the cough drops

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,
Thank you for your question and for using Healthcaremagic.
I understand your concern. The white lump may be because of the cold or by an infection that has affected your immune system. I would not worry about this, it will pass after two-four days. Is is not caused by the cough drops or by a swollen taste bud.
I hope I have answered your question. Wish you good health!

For the last 4 days I ve expierienced a sore and very sensitive tongue. It seems to be getting worse and does not seem to go away. The taste buds are a bit swollen on tip of it but otherwise there are no other changes that I could see. Just a few days before it started I had a thrush , not sure if these two could be connected. It's getting really uncomfortable and painful to eat and talk. Please help

Hello I have a lump on the right side of my neck . Doesn t hurt when I touch it but if I move my head to side and swallow I can feel like a small marble is inside. Also, I ve had swollen tastebuds . I went to the doctor and simply said that it was just an infection due to the flu which I had in December. She gave me antibiotics but that hasn t really changed anything. I m really scared. She felt my neck but did t feel anything and I did t notice the lump until now. I have an appointment with an ENT but I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what might be going on. Also my uvula tilts to one side. I m terrified
