No swollen gland, no fever. Throat swab negative for strep. It's been nearly a week now. Ulcer no better? Using anaesthetic spray, manuka honey, difflam mouthwash. Painkillers. Feeling very unwell and lethargic. Concerned it could be something eles? Back of pharynx very red. Tested negative for HPV in February. Immune system- in general, would not be great. I've seen rheumatologist to rule out bechets. I'm lost!
