Dr. Jerry Williams of Urgent Care 24/7 discusses when a sore throat is not just a sore throat.
If you have an extremely sore throat, fever and notice a pus-filled pocket that forms near one of your tonsils, you might have a Peritonsillar Abscess.
One noticeable sign is a breathy voice that sounds like you have a mouthful of hot potatoes. If you have these symptoms then it is time to seek medical attention to help treat your sore throat before the infection closes your airway.
