    Is My throat ok?
    Chase134 posted:
    Im 15 and my throat has been like this for a few months.The roof of my mouth is white and there are red bumps on the back of my my tongue which do not hurt. It sometimes hurts to swallow when i get sick but i feel like my throat looks bad. could someone tell me if this is normal
    jszaradowski responded:
    This is definitely not normal. You should go see you primary care physician right away. I think you might have strep throat. My friends daughter got diagnosed with that Monday and she had the same things as you in the mouth/throat area.
    She got put on the antibiotic Augmentin for 10 days.
