My throat hurts off and on. My tonguecils kinda hurt when I swallow too.

Hi I am a 27 year old female. I have throat problems. My throat hurts off and on. When I look in the mirror in the back of my throat I see kinda big bumps with a yellowish tent on my tongue in front of the bumps. My tonguecils kinda hurt when I swallow to. On the right side mainly. Its very irritating and comes in and out from time to time. After a few days about 1 week or 2, then it goes away. After 2 straight weeks of no irritating it comes right back. It seems it occurs worst after giving my husband oral sex . Not saying this may be the cause but I really need some advise on what may be going on!! Thanks

Yellowish pus around the throat might indicate more of an infection of staphylococcus. Get your throat swab done and take some oral antibiotics.

why don't tell your husband to avoid oralsex? see, there is limitations for everything in the world.taking any drugs for any time will never solve your problem until both of you start normal sex.understood.

Hello! I have been a fairly steady smoker for the past 10 years. Recently after I smoke my throat feels a little dry and it hurts directly in the center in the back of my throat. It does not hurt to swallow and I m not coughing at all. It just feels a little uncomfortable and a little dry. The pain also seems to go away completely if I don t have a cigarette. It only occurs now when I smoke. I ve officially stopped smoking but I m still concerned that I have pain now when I never did before. Suggestions?

Way back in my throat where I can t see feels swollen hurts to swollow on the left side. They tested for strep and mono both negative. Gave me zithromax antibiotics and just said it should clear up.
