Hello and hope you are doing well.

Besides throat infections, bacterial and fungal which can cause white patches in the throat. The other causes for long term persisting white patches in the throat are syphilis, injury like chemical injury and also due to Leukoplakia (potentially precancerous). A biopsy may be needed to detect the exact cause.
Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
