Could this be herpes on my throat? Please help. I've been worried.

Posted , 11 users are following.

Hi, I need help. I first noticed this when I had sore throat back in 2017. The Doctor prescribed me antibiotics but even after 2 weeks they're still there, until now. Last year I frequently get headaches I don't know if that's connected but I read somewhere it could be related. just recently I saw that cobblestone throat could be caused by herpes and now it's freaking the hell out of me. I wanna get checked but it's hard to get appointments due to Covid. please help!

    Hope you good

    I think this may be normal, but it may not be normal to have any disease since many time. It can be difficult to get appointments due to COVID. But you can take online consultation with any doctor or hospital

    I litterally have something similar right now and someone on reddit had the exact same thing saying it went away with some throat rinse and pain killers

    hi, going through something similar now and afraid of it being oral herpes and I'm just curious if you ever got any follow up? would be so helpful if you could share the outcome. hoping for relief, but prepared for worse case scenario as well. Thank you so much in advance for sharing your experience.

      what were your symptoms that made you get it tested for that?

      do the bumps come and go?

      or are they there all the time?

      I have these and I have throat and ear pain for like 4 months

      have you been to a specialist?

      if so what did they say about it?
