I have small white dots in the back of my throat, and several red bumps( about 6 -8 of them going down my throat). They are painless, and do not itch or burn. If i gargle salt water it burns a little, but only for a short while. I have no other bumps or possible lesions anywhere else on my body. Is this possibly herpes? I am very terrified! Its only in my throat and i am scared it could be herpes. Please help. Can (genital) herpes occur soley in the throat?
