Hi my throat has a white pus pocket and no fever, how do I get rid of it? I took a video of my throats and screen shot it.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Been sore almost a week just noticed the pus pocket last night.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It hurts to swallow.

Got it--thanks

That definitely looks like strep throat

For now you can try some oral probiotics and vitamin C and biotene mouthwash

But if it is strep and you don't get it treated with a course of oral antibiotics you run the risk of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart valve injury

So it would be best to see your doctor for a culture and the antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

It was swabbed and NOT strep that's why I am asking for help?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

So what did your doctor say about it?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
That I was not strep.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
That IT
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Never mind I am going to talk to someone else, you aren't very helpful.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

Well I'm trying but you didn't start out by telling me about the swab

Is the sore throat part of it getting any better?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
