Hi I feel pain in my throat from the past 3 months. When I look at my throat from a torch I can see some slight yellow or orange round shaped sac like formations. I took Augmentin antibiotic but it did not cure. What is it and what can I do cure it? Thanks.

Hi Sheraz,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This is called Granular Pharyngitis, these are the enlarged lymphoid follicles due to the infection in the throat. Do drink plenty of warm water and also do gargles using povidone iodine mouth wash. It will take some time for those follicles to disappear.
Take care
