Health Professional: Sumanth Amperayani, Doctor (MD) replied 3 months ago

Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. May I know your age please?

2. Are you running any temperature please?

3. Do you have any rash anywhere else in the body?

4. Are there any neck swellings please?

5. Is there any pain while swallowing?

6. Any of your contacts is having streptococcal pharyngitis?

This looks like a viral or streptococcal pharyngitis. I suggest you see your physician and get a rapid streptococcal antigen test done. If it is positive then you will require antibiotics. If it is negative then there are 2 options - it might be viral illness and doesn't require antibiotics at all/ or pending throat swab culture you might be started on oral Amoixicillin.

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

I am 38 yrs old.. no other rashes, no neck swelling, a little pain in swallowing, I don’t think anyone has strep throat that I know..
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No fever
Health Professional: Sumanth Amperayani, Doctor (MD) replied 3 months ago

Hi... Thank you for getting back with the necessary information.

The Rash is typically called palatal patechiae in medical terms. This is very classical finding in streptococcal or bacterial pharyngitis.

I suggest that you go ahead with my above advice regarding the Rapid antigen streptococcal testing.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
