Throat ulsers that will not disappear!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all. I have lots of ulsers in the back of my throat, here is a picture of my throat:

I first noticed these ulsers when I had a sore throat 2 1/2 months ago. I went to my GP and he told me they were either due to a viral or bacterial infection and would go on their own. He told me to gargle Corsodyl. I did and they haven't changed. I have also tried gargling salt water, L-lysine but nothing has helped at all. I went back to my GP today to see a different doctor who gave me Hydrocortisone lozengers (take one four times a day for 5 days) and if they don't work she will refer me to a ENT specialist. She was pretty clueless to what they are or what they are caused by, can anyone shed any light?

They cause me no discomfort at all.

I suffered from very bad acid reflux for a long time and was on Omneprozol for 7ish weeks just prior to this.

I came off the contraceptive pill (Yasmin) just prior to this and was on the pill for around 6-7 years.

I have post nasal drip.

I have been stressed for quite a while as my Gran died last Sept and have been stressed ever since.

Any advise or help would be so helpful as the stress is getting me down. Thank you all xx

    They're called pustules, looks like you've (still) got tonsillitis smile
