Why are there bumps in the back of my throat?


Bumps in the back of the throat are often associated with other symptoms such as soreness, inflammation, malaise and fever. These are often caused by infections, whether viral, such as a cold, mononucleosis, or the flu, or bacterial, such as strep throat or tonsillitis. The bumps may also be caused by irritants or allergies.

Consult your doctor for a proper assessment of your throat and diagnosis. Treatment will vary on the cause and severity of the issue. Bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics and allergies should respond to antihistamines. Unfortunately viral infections cannot be directly treated, only their symptoms; they have to run their course. If the symptoms are relatively minor, you can care for yourself at home with pain relievers, antiseptic rinses, fluids and rest.
