Avatar f tn The final doctor suggested that the longer the antibiotics have no effect, the greater the chance that I have glandular fever. He mentioned quinsy, but said he could not see anything resembling an abscess and the fact I can swallow water, open my mouth and am not drooling indicates that is unlikely. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Avatar f tn a white bump on a tonsil can be pus, stone (tonsillolith), swollen lymph tissue, or infection like tonsillitis Peri-tonsillar abscess (quinsy) would have infection (cellulitis) surrounding the tonsil. Although STDs can be transmitted by oral sex, they're uncommon. Gonorrhea and herpes simplex are 2 that are more easily passed. See a doctor to differentiate among these posibilites.

Avatar n tn I had my tonsils out 12yrs ago and every year or two I get a bad infection just like a quinsy (peritonsillar abscess). I've been admitted to hospital twice for IV antibiotics and I know the infection is like an abscess as it bursts. However no-one seems to want to do anything about it. It totally paralyses me for a week. The pain is intolerable. Even when I've not got an infection I can taste teh infection at the back of my throat and can cough little bits of pus from my tonsil root.
