i've noticed that i have white spots in the back of my throat, also they seemto be around my tonsils, next to my left tonsil i have a small lump which is about the size of a small pea, my throat isnot sore, but my left tonsil where this lump is feels like its burning, coulod anyone give me any advice on what it could be?
White spots and inflammation are usually indicative of strep throat. You'll need to see a doctor and take antibiotics. You should be able to get in soon to the doc; they usually don't fool around with strep.
the little lump which is very near to my left tonsil, isn't white, its seems to be like a blister ( i think) but the back of my throat has like white spots on it, also my gums are going white around my teeth, i did have my wisdom teeth took out last year the back ones at the top, and i smoked afterwards, thats when i noticed the whiteness on my gums, but the white spots in the back of my throat i didn't really take much notice of them untill now...
