I want to ask, a week ago my throat ached as if someone was pinching the inside but I had no complaints when I swallowed food. The next day the pain returned and when I saw using a flashlight, around my tonsils there were yellow spots. Until now the pain is sometimes felt, but not very often and the spots are still there. For several days I have gargled with antiseptic and salt water, but to no avail. Is this a common sore throat or something? Please help, thank you.

Hi Aris, Thank you for the question.

A sore throat can be caused by strep throat and inflammation of the tonsils / tonsillitis, which can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. This complaint can be accompanied by swallowing pain, itching in the throat, fever, cough, runny nose, swollen tonsils, enlarged lymph nodes, headaches. There can also be white or yellowish patches on the tonsils, which usually indicates that this condition is caused by a bacterial infection. However, it is also necessary to be aware of the possibility of a peritonsillar abscess or tonsillolith (stones on the tonsils that are formed from food debris, dead cells, and bacteria) as the cause of the appearance of these spots. If your complaint has been going on for several days and the spots are still visible, you should consult an ENT specialist for further tests to determine the cause of your complaint. After the doctor determines the cause, the doctor will provide treatment according to your condition.

Meanwhile, you can continue to rinse your mouth with salt water. Increase consumption of water and avoid smoking.

Hope this information is useful.
