Sore throat
immamonster247 posted:
I have had a small cold for a while now but I woke up today and had a really sore throat and my parents are to busy to take me to a clinic this week so I was wondering if it was just a normal sore throat or strep throat or something else. I have never really had throat problems so I do not know what to look for. I looked in the mirror n used a flashlight to look and found it was red n bumpy n there was some white but I do not know what it is.
