    Hi, I'm really concerned because I have white bumps or sores on my throat and tongue, and it hurts to swallow. I have the sores/bumps on both sides, but the left side hurts a lot more. This has never happened to me before, and I find it really scary! What's caused them, and how do I get rid of them?

    I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but the problem is that it could be a variety of things. It could be thrush (yeast infection), strep, be due to reflux, etc. It is best to go to the doctor and have them properly diagnose you because if you treat it for the wrong thing, it could get worse.

I CAN ALSO ONLY OPEN MY MOUTH A CERTAIN AMOUNT, IF I OPEN IT MORE THAN THAT CERTAIN AMOUNT I GET AN INCREDIBLE PAIN. TEARS RUN DOWN MY FACE WHEN I SWOLLOW. :( READ MORE
