Sore throat

My throat has been hurting for a couple weeks now. It will move from one side to another. I just thought it was my sinuses draining and irritating it. I look at it with a flashlight, and tonight I had my 14 yr old son look too. He said, "mom you need to pop that yellow thing in the back of your throat". I said what! I looked and saw it, it's like a knot, and it's yellow. Should I call the Dr in the morning?
I hate going to the Dr. Maybe it will just go away.. What do ya'll think?

Thanks for your help!!

  • you def. need antibiotics! Call the doctor in the morning, don't eat anything that will irritate your throat, stick to soft foods, applesauce, yogurts, popsicles, ice creams (mmmm) stuff like that. Gargling with salt&water will also help with the irritation

    hope you feel better soon! & be careful because there is a yucky flu going around.
