I just wanted to know what are those yellow spots I just saw It 2day
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 2 years ago

Thank you for your query .

These yellow spots are SIGNS OF INFLAMMATION. There is an inflammation of the gum edges.

This can be caused by hard brushing technique , over use of mouth washes , excessive rubbing or cleaning of the gums , vitamin B deficiency.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

These are great for your health.

Addition of Folic acid to your supplements daily in a dose of 5 mg per day will help.

You should also take Vitamin B 12 shots from your doctor

2weeks
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is it ser doctor
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 2 years ago

yes the swelling behind is suggestive of acute tonsillitis.

You may need to take an oral antibiotic for this.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

Is because of smoking or any other reasons
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have throat pain all the time I don't have any problem swallowing food it's just irritation around throat
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 2 years ago

It can be due to smoking , infection or vitamin deficiencies.

You would need to see an ENT doctor to check your throat to start the antibiotics.

You can do some Betadine gargles for sore throat or Betadine lozenges to help with the discomfort in the throat that you mentioned.
