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.

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