Why do i cough continuously and what are small pimples in my throat ?

sir i am a male 21 years. I had an operation of sinus about 2 and half years back. 2 months after my operation i started smoking. although i left it after 6 months. and about after 1 year again started it. but I had left it from 1/1/2011.but still i have a problem of cough continuously. last week i saw in the mirror that there are small pimples inside my throat area. and whenever i rub my throat by inserting hand inside to clean it, blood start coming out along with cough. although there is no pain but I fear that there might not be any big infection inside. please help.....i will really be thankful.

Hi Welcome to Health care magic

The above signs and symptoms suggestive of Acute Pharyngitis... The pimples like lesions seen on the posterior pharyngeal wall is due to infection.. Do not rub it, once the infection reduces it will disappear... You can take Tab.Levoflox 500mg once a day for 3 days.. if still persists then you need to be clinically examined and treated..

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Hi! I am a 30 y.o. gay male, no medical history. Over the last 2 years, I have been having pretty bad sore throat episodes, throat infections, tonsilitis etc. I also had a lymph node that wouldnt go away... I have been fine for months and now again I have a bad sore throat with fever etc. But now I know I think I know the reason but I am too shy to talk to a doctor about it. I enjoy giving deep oral sex (deepthroating), and I realized that everytime I had a sore throat (that lasted for days), I had had that kind of oral sex a few days before... Can you confirm please? And what do I need to do? I am a little worried... Thanks.
