Swollen Tonsils & Clear/Fleshy Colored Bumps on Roof of Mouth

I was sick about a month and a half ago and put on a Z-Pak (standard fever, sinus infection etc.) About 3 weeks later I noticed red spots on the roof of my mouth. Now I had had unprotected oral sex just the week before and was worried. I consulted a doctor who said it did not look like anything to worry about.

The red spots went away and now I just have very small granular bumps (small but there is alot of them!) on the roof of my mouth. I also have red, swollen tonsils. I consulted another doctor who did not think there was anything out of the ordinary. I was put on amoxcillin just to try and clear up the remaining tonsil problems but I only have 2 days left and am unsure of the progress.

I also realize that if I focus on the problem, it most likely won't go away but I am under alot of stress and this is not helping. I also have noticed that I have been clenching my jaw when I sleep.

I have heard from two doctors that it is nothing out of the ordinary but I am just a little afraid...I am pretty sure it is not herpes related but I am a little worried about HPV? But I have heard there are either no symptoms or warts (these are just plain small bumps).

Anybody?

  • ha.. how I wish someone has responded... same symptoms for 2 weeks but no chance it's related to unprotected sex in my case.. had sinus problem a month earlier as well... urgh...doc does not know what this is... please help with diagnosis...the bumps are tiny granular and perfectly space as if on a grid.. back of the roof of the mouth and some less perfectly spaced towards the front of the mouth - also on the roof... otherwise had a huge head/ neck ache for 4 days and that stopped after 2 doses of claritin... weird and maybe unrelated.

  • I have also had the small fleshy colored little bumps in my mouth prob. For about a month ..they cause me sevier pain regardless if I am Eatin or doin nothin at all..I've also noticed that my neck and throat and head all are killin me and its very persistant I couldnt take the pain no longer! so I went to see a doc. She said it didnt look like it was anythiing to worry BOut but She was very uncertain of what it is I tried all kinds of things (warm salt water-which didn't help) and (perproxyl which IS a mouth wash with peroxide-that didn't help either) but She gave me a prescription of Something called magic mouth wash ..just for the pain..it don't help 100% but it numbs some! and she wants me to go see a dentist to see if it could be an absess tooth..I sure hope that's all it is.cus like u I was worried about the oral sex thing..but she said that it didn't look like that, or cancer..she got out a book and was lookin through pics. And couldn't seem to find anything that looked like mine...she said that she has never seen that before...any way needless to say. I'm still in pain and got no real Answer what my prob is..I'm terrified cuz it hurts so bad. I can't even sleep..other then that mouth wash..I am right Where I started! I'm goin to the school of dentistry to hopefully get some Answers..and ill let everyone know how that goes..
