Customer Question
I started to run...

I started to run a fever two days ago, I still have a sore throat and keep coughing, this morning I woke up and checked my mouth and noticed little white heads on the back of my throat. I usually don’t check my mouth when I’m sick so I’m not sure if this is normal or not? Please help.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?

I had a fever two days ago, yesterday and this morning my throat is still sore and I have a cough

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The symptoms might have started as a viral infection.
Sometimes, there can be a bacterial infection after a viral one.
The points can be from a bacterial infections.
I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
A throat swab, blood work can be tested.
Ibuprofen or tylenol can be taken.
Please take plenty of fluid.
Have adequate rest.
You can do warm salt,water gargling.
1/2 tsf salt in 8 oz. of warm water would be good.
Please keep the room warm & humidified.
You can have one humidifier on.
I hope all these measures would give relief.

Could it be mono?

Do you have enlarged glands in the neck?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

They’re definitely bigger than usual

Mono usually causes a coating on tonsil but heads or points are more common with strep.

Lymph glands can be enlarged in both.
