So I've been having off and on recurring symptoms of white pustules or red bumbs lining the back of my throat and on my tonsil. I went to my GP when I first recieved it about a year ago, and he diagnosed it as Strep Throat (although rapid strep test proved negative) and prescribed antibiotics. After a week of taking the antibiotics i became covered with smooth little red spots (rashes) all over my body including my palms. I went to my school's hospital with these spots and found it to be a symptom brought on from a mix of taking antibiotics and having Mono. They diagnosed me with mono and sent me on my way. In a few weeks it disappeared only to come back again several months later and disappear again. Now just recently it has flared up again although curious is not painful as in the last cases. I don't know what to do now and fear for it to be serious. Interesting to note is that this symptom flares up only after seeing my girlfriend, and started shortly after dating this girl (why I thought I had gotten Mono from her, although she shows no symptoms). Maybe it might be some sort of fungual infection passed from vagina to mouth? :confused:

  • Sounds like tonsillitis as far as your throat. The red rash on your body sounds like an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. Hives. They should have tried a different antibiotic. Did you finish the antibiotics you were on? Maybe the infection never cleared up or you were exposed to a second one. As far as mono - you get it once and that's it. They can't just look at your throat and say you got mono without some testing. Sound like you need to go to a Ears, Nose and Throat doctor who can properly diagnois you. Good luck.
