JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post some pictures of those for me on this page?

difficult to get a proper picture as it is right at the back of my throat

Got it--hold on please

Not herpes or anything related to sex there

Looks very much like strep throat even if there's no fever

Since if that goes untreated it can lead to rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart valve disease I suggest you see your doctor as soon as possible for a rapid stress test and a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin or Septra

Please let me know if you need any more information
