I have a weird lesion that I just noticed in the back of my throat a few days ago. For the last couple of months, my throat has felt slightly strained after the normal conversation. I currently take Lisinopril, HCTZ, and Amlodipine for hypertension. My PCP prescribed a Z-pack and referred me to ENT since she does not know what the lesion is. So I am wondering if this is something that I should be concerned about in the meantime. Since I started taking Lisinopril, HCTZ, I have had strong cravings for acidic foods such as vinegar and hot sauce. I initially thought my diet was causing issues with my throat, so I significantly cut down on these types of foods. In addition to the lesion, I have noticed white scaly patches in the back of my throat.
