What are little pustules in throat filled with pus like substance I have stopped smoking but notice i have white pustules at back of my throat?
pharyngitis or inflammation of the pharynx/throat may be the reason for white pustules in the back of the throat. Getting a culture done at the doctor office will help diagnose.
Definition Pustules are small, inflamed, pus-filled, blister-like lesions on the skin surface. Considerations Pustules are common in acne. They may occur anywhere on the body, but are most commonly seen on the face, shoulders, back, and over the breastbone, and in areas of increased sweating such as the groin and armpit. Pustules may be a sign of a bacterial infection, and should be checked by a doctor. References Habif TM. Principles of diagnosis and anatomy. In: Habif TP, ed. Clinical Dermatology. 5th ed.
