I got a sore throat last night. Two red blotches appeared but do not itch or feel raised but they are very prominent and sit about where the gland under your ear is. I have not changed soap, shampoo or anything of that nature recently and they only presented when I started to get the sore throat late last night. What could this be and do I need to see a doctor? One more thing, my husband is an active cancer patient and I do not want to infect him with something. thanks!
