Itching throat, dry cough, white spots on glands. Throat ulcers?

Hi, I am an 18 year old female. Over the past few days, my throat has been a little itchy and I had a dry cough. Yesterday I felt like there was phlegm in my throat so I kept trying to cough it up, I even stuck my finger down there. When I woke up this morning my throat was feeling no better so I looked in the mirror and there were like little white spots on my glands. I can feel them when I swallow my spit, but it doesn t hurt me or prevent me from eating or drinking. I looked on the internet and from my research, I believe they are throat ulcers . What can I do to treat them and how do they come about? Also I ve had oral sex recently and swallowed the sperm (sorry for all the detail,) but I went to the doctors after I did for a check up so I know it isn t herpes. Someone please help!

Hi and thanks for the query,
I feel you are down with throat infection that's all. Do not worry.
Do warm salt water gargling 3 times daily, avoid cold foods and air conditioning and drink plenty of fluids.
If you do not feel better in a couple of days then you mey need antibiotics so see a doctor.
