  • I have these exact same symptoms right now. Went to the doctor yesterday and he had no idea what it was. Didn't think it was strep but gave me an antibiotic anyway, while he also thinks it might be mono. He didn't seem to try all that hard to figure it out. Did you ever get a diagnosis? My entire mouth is killing me, I'm in agony and have barely been able to swallow just to force down water over the past few days.

  • Him very similar thing here, I've had it for about 7 months now, doctors tell me to go home.. did any of you receive a diagnosis? it looks like a conspiracy to me, everywhere i find something similar on the internet, the thread just ends without any replies from the one adding the thread or answers that might be consistent.. i would appreciate some feedback, this thing in my throat is the only thing keeping me from enjoying anything, thanks

  • Hi, have just read your message. I went to a specialist on numerous occasions. I finally found one that seemed to know what he was talking about. He was convinsed without and dout that it was a fungal infection. He also said that there was nothing seriously wrong. I know this sounds a bit to good to be true, trust me if it had been said to me at the time I was having this problem I wouldnt have believed it. So the remedy.... every morning and every night without fail. Gargle warm water with salt. This tasts ruff for for a bit but you get used to it. Trust me its like magic. I did this for a month and after 1 week you will see a masive difference. There is also a med called dactarin that you swollow likea tooth past but from experience the salt water is much better. I still from time to time get a bad throat but I havmt had one for well over a month now of stopping the salt water and before that I had these problems every other week. I no its not a medicine but I assure you all that ut works I had this problem pasistantly for 2 years. I hope this helps.

  • Have you been tested for HSV1? I am having a similar experience that is literally the worst pain I have had in 32 years on this planet. Worse than strep. It's a nightmare. It looks like a canker but mine start to "drain" (I don't know how else to explain it) and the white gets leaky all around the circular sore. I was just tested for HSV1&2 and am getting results back soon. I just want to be pain free at this point. I am miserable. Ask to be tested ASAP.

  • Same experience happening on my throat. For those who have lack of sleep, always stress themselves, lack of vitamins and even eating sweet food might get this called fungal infection on your throat. I always got this whenever I eat sweets. At first canker sore appears almost everywhere inside my mouth and started to infect my tonsils and got white blisters. It feels really uncomfortable, hard to talk and even gives you bad breath and the worst its really hard to eat.

    With this kind of disease, I learned how to manage it by gargling warm water with salt every morning and night. Although, when the time it gets worsen. I drink anti-biotic (Cefuroxime) 2 times a day, while still gargling of course. It helps me though.
