A Sore Throat Accompanied By A White Membrane?
Sorry to disturb the time, I want to ask. So, a few weeks ago I was recovering from a prolonged dry cough. I have a history of every dry cough, it always takes a long time to recover. But suddenly, a few days ago my throat hurt. At first it didn’t hurt much but it really made my ears ache. And then it really hurts, until every time I eat, I get tears in my eyes because my milk is sore. I also took the initiative to check my throat using a flashlight, and I saw right after my tonsillectomy there was a white membrane and beside it canker sores. He is 2 different things, so the white membrane is rather thick, then the side is really sprue sprue with the middle red. out of town. So I only buy paracetamol and imboost, then take lasegar but it’s not 4-5 days yet. I guess the doctor knows what I’m going through? Btw I really have low immunity, I don’t get sick easily. Thank you 🙂
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
White patches on the tonsils are also called tonsillar detritus. This is a sign of an infection in your throat. Symptoms include colds, sore throat, cough, fever, difficulty swallowing, headaches, swelling in lymph nodes, and bad breath.
Some things that can cause tonsillar detritus:
- Buildup of bacteria and food scraps in the tonsils
- Inflammation of the tonsils / tonsillitis
- Sore throat
- Oral candidiasis / fungal infections of the mouth wall
- and others.
It is better to consult directly with the doctor. So that doctors can conduct interviews and some further examinations to find out your current condition.
Here's what you can do at home: get enough rest, manage stress well, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, consume enough water, avoid caffeine consumption, avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, wear a mask if traveling to places with high pollution, regular exercise .
