My question my 12 yr old daughter whose always been extremely healthy has started having issues. Yesterday she started running a temp & we looked in her throat & it looks like honeycombs in the back of her throat. Some background info 2 months ago we noticed a cyst behind the bone behind her right ear also one under her right arm. Her psoriasis has kicked up & she's getting headaches. We have seen a dr for those now & lately she's been really tired & moody. Also we are waiting to go to a female dr bc they found 4 golf ball size masses in her breast. I'm kinda freaked out bc she's never even had an ear infection before. Anybody had this issues before? We keep getting brushed off & we are going to the hospital tomorrow morning she was too tired to go tonight so we let her rest but we are going there bc doctor can't get us back in till after thanksgiving.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

What you see in the throat could be cobblestone appearance which occurs in throat infections. Throat infections are most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and  (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain. If she develops a fever, or if there is enlargement of the tonsils with pain or if there is white coating on the tonsils, you will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive she will be given antibiotics.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
