Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your history, it may be epiglottitis or tonsillitis. You may require antibiotics like tablet Azithromycin after consultation. Take tablet Tylenol if you have fever. Do saline or Betadine gargling. Keep yourself hydrated. Take rest.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I ve been having a sore throat for about 5 days now. It started with a headache and a lot of fatigue and pain in my body. Then I felt that my tonsils became swollen and I couldn t talk or swallow because it was very painful. My gums are also very swollen, they hurt a lot and they bleed easily when I brush my teeth. Today I just noticed I have a blister in my lower lip... what is wrong with me?

I have had a sore throat for a month and discomfort when swallowing without food; no fever. I also have thick white mucus which tastes sour. I was initially cleared of strep in a ER test. A week later I had a thorough exam by an ENT MD who did not find anything wrong. I am frustrated because my symptoms persit.

I woke up today with the right side of my throat being really sore and it s hard to swallow. I just noticed a black spot in the back of my throat and I swabbed it with a cotton swab and there was blood and mucus on it. I ve had this pain a lot before but never noticed the black spot, it comes out of nowhere and then will suddenly leave. I have also been having a really bad cough.
