White tinea: the symptoms

The symptom of white angina is the presence of an inflammation covered with a whitish coating at the back of the throat. This coating may be more or less extensive, and cover the surface of the tonsils or only parts.

Other numerous symptoms may indicate angina or be associated with it:

  • Fever more or less high (mainly for bacterial angina).
  • Chills.
  • Headache and body aches.
  • Cough (especially for viral angina).
  • Painful swallowing that can prevent eating normally.
  • Sore throat, especially when swallowing.
  • Hoarsely.
  • Swollen tonsils.
  • Swollen glands at the neck.
  • General fatigue.
  • Bad breath.
  • Nasal discharge, signs of conjunctivitis ...

The symptoms are obviously not all present at the same time, and depend on the age of the patient and the infectious agent that is responsible for the disease.

Faced with these symptoms, to differentiate the type of infectious agent involved, the doctor can perform a Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT), it will then be possible to know if it is a viral angina or a bacterial angina (in this case, RDT is positive if it is strep throat).
