Hi,

Is your daughter affected from tonsillitis often? - usually, frequent tonsillitis infection is associated with rheumatic diasease which can partially explain your daughter's body aches.

Therefore, If this is her case, I recommend to check with her ENT specialist if any rheumatologist evaluation is needed.

Next, if your daughter has the symptoms of flu, most probably virosis might be the cause of her body aches. Give her plenty of fluids, water especially, and tea, give some over-the-counter pain killers and get her sleep well and get rest.

With regards to black bumps which turn red with white head, most probably it might be of a skin infection, for which oral and topical treatment is needed. I recommend to do the culture of the discharge coming out from the "white headed bumps" and talk to dermatologist for the follow up as I do not have the picture of your problems.

Take care!

I had this bump coming up on my back. It kept getting redder & bigger. It look like it would break & did today. I squeezed it & got this white stuff (solid) out with blood. Now there s a hole & still leeking alittle blood. Is it a cyst or boil. I think a core came out too. I put Neosporin on it and bandaid on it. It is still sore & red.

Hi. I have had a sore throat for about 5 days with no other symptoms but body aches. Then it finally went away and started to feel better. Today it is back and hurts again with aches. I should mention I have been up since 4am traveling and switching planes and had a nonstop day. So body aches and throat is back. Should I be worried or does it just sound like the first day i felt great I wore my body out and my immunity lowered when I wasn t 100%? PS. I ve had strep throat before and it is PAINFUL like can t even swallow so I don t think I have strep because not near amount of pain. Throat is red though red veins are prominent.
