White patches on throat
I woke up yesterday with an extremely sore throat.  I have had Strep a few times before so I looked at the back of my throat and found the white spots, but they were more in patches than spots.  I called the doctor to see if she could do the strep test so I could find out earlier if I had it to start the treatment and whatnot.  by the middle of the day my throat was no longer sore (still swollen though) and the white patches went away.  This morning I woke up and my throat is not sore again, a little irritated, but not sore, and the patches are back.  I don't really think it's Strep, but I have no idea what it could be.  Any thoughts?

There are several things that can cause white spots/patches besides strep.  I suggest you see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.  Many other bacterial infections can cause the spots on your tonsils.  If you use steroid inhaler, have been on antibiotics and/or oral steroids recently oral thrush could be the culpret as well.  

Feel better.
