Respected customer your are having pharyngitis. White patches over throat and tongue
can be due to associated fungal infection called candidiasis ( oral thrush).
You need to consult your doctor.So that he can look into them physically. You need to
start on antibiotics and anti fungal drops.Continue taking panadol and hot drinks but
avoid strepsils. Do have saline or warm water gargles daily at least thrice.Thanks and
do let me know if you need further help.
