Strange looking throat/bumps/lumps and horrible taste.

Patient

Q: Hi,

I have been having a strange taste in my mouth for some time now and it is usually more noticeable when I swallow or when I drink something plain like water.

When I look in the mirror at my mouth and throat I see a number of things I don't think look normal;

- Constant white coating on tongue.
- Small red bumps on the back of my tongue.
- Many red, white and flesh coloured bumps on the back of my throat.
- White patches on Uvula.
- Swollen / bumpy and lumpy paletine tonsil.
- Worse than normal bad breath in the morning.
- Strange taste in mouth. Milky or like mothballs.
- Bad smelling saliva. Worse than normal.
- Persistent dry mouth.
- No pain at all in mouth or throat.
