Common Questions and Answers about Throat ulcers on tonsils

throat

As it is now the weekend, I would suggest going to either an urgent care facility or even the ER and let them know that you've seen a doctor for your throat, he's told you you have ulcers on your tonsils and you are not able to eat or drink. At the very least, they should be able to give you some IV fluids to make sure you're not dehydrated - and probably antibiotics also. I hope you feel better soon!
Hi all. I have lots of ulcers in the back of my throat, here is a picture of my throat: http://i43.tinypic.com/6qd5qt.jpg I first noticed these ulcers when I had a sore throat 3 months ago. I went to my GP and he told me they were either due to a viral or bacterial infection and would go on their own. He told me to gargle Corsodyl. I did and they haven't changed. I have also tried gargling salt water, L-lysine but nothing has helped at all.
Hi all, back at the beginning of April this year I had a sore throat, I looked and saw I had a few ulcers/blisters in the back of my throat, I have never had these before, and they weren't there previous to that, I had just come off Omeprazole which I had been taking for acid reflux, and had been on them for 9 weeks.I had also just come off Yasmin contraceptive pill that i had been taking for around 8 years.
I have had several puss pockets on my tonsils for several days now but have not had any other symptoms of having been sick or being sick. What could this be? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/241600'>virus in nose and throat</a>.
The left side of my throat(back of my mouth) on the side are 3 ulcers that look like canker sores and even farther back to the opening of my throat the area is swollen and red and whitish.. the other side of my thraot in the back of my mouth is wihte and looks like some parts are bleeding but are actually inflammed capillaries.. my doctor told me it was a virus and that it had nothing to do with me previous infection.
Came home, was playing with my kids and had my dog slam her head into my chin from beneath which caused me to violently bite my tounge. A gash on either side. Tuesday night my throat started to hurt but it wasn't really my throat is was the little flaps of skin right in front of my tonsils. When i looked I found the beginning of an ulcer on either side. This is my first question...would or could the trama to the tounge cause an ulcer to form in a different location of my mouth?
3 weeks after that i was back at the dr. with swollen tonsils still and sore throat with white spots again, strep! put on antibiotics. tonsils went down alittle, white spots gone, throat better. 4 weeks after that back at the dr. with still swollen tonsils and sore throat, tonsillitis again! i was sent to an ENT. now it's july, the ENT does a CT scan and says i need surgery on my "pads", deviated septum, "weed wack" my nose.
What tests can they do to determine if it is Apthous ulcers and do these things just heal up on their own? I am not concerned about future problems involving sex, as at this point, I am terrified to even go there. I've never had an STD and all signs point to it not being herpes. These ulcers basically look like someone poured acid on my skin. I could not find any pictures of herpes that even resembled this. It literally looks like my skin is being eaten away. HELP. OUCH.

Is it possible that chronic tonsillitis causes ulcerations in the stomach? My tonsils have been swollen since July. I went to the hospital for tonsillitis and was also complaining of gastric pains that radiated to my back. My ENT gave me Co-Amoxiclav but it didn't work. I was made to go home thinking I would just recover by continuing my medications at home. the hospital failed to have a Gastroenterologist check my stomach. So I was only able to see the Gastroenterologist after I was discharged.
I have an ultra big ulcer on my tonsils which was diagnosed as ulcer on a tonsil by a General Practictioner (Doctor) 1 week ago. he gave me some anti biotics for a week. but this Ulcer on my left tonsil is around for 4 weeks and it just wouldn't go away. I can still eat and drink normally but with a little discomfort and it is healing very slowly. this is the first time im having this problem. Im suspecting that ard 10 days ago, i smoked heavly, im a social smoker and smoke occasionally only.
For the past 5 years ive had a discomfort in my throat, starting with ulcers on my tonsils. and swollen lymph nodes (the ones that apparently drain to the tonsils). The doctor checked all my lymph nodes, and has said my tonsils are inflammed and that i may have some kind of chronic reoccuring infection (or something like that...) due to the health of my teeth, does this sound plausible? I have a phobia of dentists hence the reason i havent being for years.
So over the past few months I have been having a lot of problems with ulcers near my throat and they really hurt! I've been getting more generalized mouth ulcers all over, but the worst big nasty ones keep appearing on my soft palate next to the uvula on either side. I keep getting multiple ones on my tonsils and they really hurt! I tend to feel sick when I get them and always think I'm coming down with strep throat again until I look and see the ulcers.
another thing is that the pain was moving from side to side , for one two days were on the left, the next they were on right and the next on the center.

This cleared up in a few days, then I got little blisters under my tonge and on floor of my mouth, some of which turned into tiny ulcers. I also had blisters on the back of my tongue but these have largely got sloughed off with eating food and now just looks red. I also have enlarged papillae on the back centre of my tongue and elongated ones with what look like blisters at the end on the sides of my tongue. I have enlarged tonsils with blisters and blisters on the tonsillar pillars.
Hi I have sore throat from last 3 weeks. few days back my sore throat has almost gone and came back next day. First 2 weeks I had mild sore throat with mild cold & mild dry cough. few days back I got couple of ulcers in mouth (near throat)& very tiny few red spots on tongue. from last week some times i'm getting light pain in ears. I had sore throats before, but never last more than a 10 days & i never had ulcers or any other mouth problems in last 20 years except sore throats.
Sorry, I will leave you alone after this., I just looked at my throat with a flashlight and noticed a canker sore type thing on my right tonsil near the thick white patches. Is that part of mono? Or is it an oral herpe?
more specifically my tonsils are covered in bits of white and red, large oblong (4 or so altogether on both sides, 1 on the left, 3 on the right) ulcers. The ulcers have a thin white edge with a dark red center that follows the oblong shape. I know there is a rare form of herpes that infects the throat, especially for those in their 20s such as myself, does this sound like herpes, and if anybody has had throat herpes can they be specific.
Generally unwell with fatigue and aches and pains (ongoing HIC Exposure concerns) Today i was sat in car and looked in the rear view mirror and opened wide. I saw white areas on the back of my throat. I dont know if the are ulcers,, blisters or thrush plaques. I have none on my tongue or inseide walls of my mouth. I have started to sneeze but have had no cough. I wish i could take a photo but i cant get it right to share. Any ideas? Thanks.
I would post this on the Eyes, Ears and Throat Forum. Best Wishes.
I also got my tonsils out when I was 22 as I was getting tonsillitis every 2-4 wks, I'm 39 now and this has been going on every couple months or so since then. I'm also prone to cold sores, frequent mouth ulcers on my tongue gums and back of my throat. I also have Sjorgen's disease, could that be any relation? I always seem to get these throat infections within a day or so of arriving on holidays? cause. Any help with this matter would be gratefully appreciated.
Hi, I am 24 year old and I am experiencing pain on my throat for 2 weeks now. I’m afraid that if this is cancerous or not (hope it is not). I am a Technical Support Engineer and we are talking on the phone at least 7 hours a day, my shift is 8pm-5 am and I am lacking sleep. 2 weeks ago, I was having hard time talking and there is hoarseness on my voice. I can talk but I can feel the pain in the lower part of my neck. I can’t feel any lump on my neck, but I am having hard time swallowing.
I now have a bump that just appeared suddenly on my gum. NOw my throat discomfort has moved to the left side of my throat and mouth. I hope your husband is okay.
I have taken my 3 daily ammoxicilan(which she prescribes me everytime I'm in there) Used chloroseptic spray, gargled warm salt water, and have taken ibuprofen, everything the doc told me. I just looked at my throat and discovered my tonsils about half covered in ulcers. I would think if the doctor saw that this morning, she would have said something. So, after my life story, whats up with the tonsil ulcers 12 hour after seeing the doctor??
All sores are inside the mouth (none at all on the outside of the mouth or around the lips - ever), on the soft palate around the mouth and on the sides and underside of the tongue and below, not the gums and not inside the throat but on the soft palate of the throat - in front of the tonsils.
1. About a year ago I noticed a lump on the left side of my throat (near my tonsils) it swelled up enough so that I could feel it there when I swallowed but was painless. I could feel it if I put my finger down my throat. In a few weeks I forgot about it as the feeling of it being there disappeared. ( I guess it decreased in size ) Now a year later I feel it there again for about 3 weeks. Again no pain but annoying. I was just wondering if there is a simple explanation for this. Allergy etc..
hey folks - i am on my 8th week of 24 week tx with pegasys & copegus - i have some of the normal sx but all of a sudden i have a very sore throat, roof of mouth and sore, raw tongue. my tongue seems to be very dry and it burns. i still have my tonsils and think i have gotten tonsilitis (sore throat & hard to swallow) this has been going on for a week now - any suggestions? anyone experience this before?
