What does this look like?

Since I started smoking 8 years ago, I noticed heavy scarring in my throat.  The tissue is very hard and lumpy and gets irritated and infected with dots of pustules. It looks disgusting.   What does it sound like? My GP says it looks normal but no, it doesn't.

Hello.  Are you still having this?  It could simply be the result of smoking.  But you can have your doctor swab it.
