I was just recently diagnosed with mono and I have
Patient :I was just recently diagnosed with mono and I have the typical white gunk(extrudate?) on my swollen tonsils. There are a lot of little annoying white spots all over my tonsils and by the back area of my throat. I was wondering if it would be ok to maybe gently scrap some of the gunk off? It keeps scratching my throat and it's very annoying. Thanks
