Common Questions and Answers about How to get swollen tonsils down


Avatar n tn So recently i had oral sex with my partner and like a day later I developed a cough. I've been coughing for about a week but today I noticed that my tonsils are swollen and i noticed 1 white spot on one of my tonsils. I got tonsilitus (sorry don't know how to spell that) when i was 16 and ever since then when i get sick my tonsils are the first thing to act up. They swell up and they hurt. This time they don't hurt but they are swollen.
Avatar f tn ve gave oral sex to my boyfriend on the weekend and now I have really swollen tonsils and they have lots of puss spots which are extremely swollen and very painful. I went to the doctors and they gave me penicillin but said if it was an infection (I think) it wouldn't work. I have been taking paracetamol for pain and ibuprofen now which has helped a lot but not sure if the swelling is going down. I looked at them again and the puss spots seem to have gotten more white, what does this mean?
Avatar f tn Okay, so here's the story. For the past month I've had swollen tonsils with white pieces of mucous or whatever and they tend to break off and they're not that great tasting. I've also had horrible breath and a slight sore throat. So i go to the doctor and he tells me it's strep so he gave me an antibiotic. I've known that it's not strep and the doctor was stupid.

Avatar f tn I got rid of it by antibiotics and I got a cold senior year and only one of my tonsils got swollen and again I got antibiotics to get rid of it. Now I graduated 2012 and I have a cold and again one of tonsils are swollen. My aunt suggests I should get them removed but idk. I have a runny, stuffy nose and coughs.
Avatar f tn Hi... I've had swollen tonsils since around.. March 16th. I went to a walk in clinic and they swabbed me for strep. I didn't have it. I then went to my family doctor on march 27th, and he said it was a viral infection and i had to let it take its course. He gave me some mouth wash that was supposed to take down the swelling but it didn't work. It's now may 19th, and my tonsils are STILL swollen. I'm very scared, and I don't know what could be causing it.
Avatar m tn It has gotten bad enough now that my throat feels closed off and when you look inside my mouth you can clearly see there is not much space between tonsils and my uvula is rubbing one of them.THe tonsils appear to be slighty red but other than that they do not appear to have spots or white anything on them. I have begun having problems sleeping as a result of this. I have no health insurance, in this day and age it is too hard to get it. I want to know what the problem could be.
Avatar f tn I have an appointment with my ENT Dr. next week, but my tonsil stones are driving me insane. I haven't been able to swallow or eat due to them being so large and my tonsils being swollen. I've tried googling tips and all I can find are websites trying to sell me products. Does anyone know of ways to get them out? Is a tonsillectomy common for this issue? I've also have had problems with strep as well, but only about 2 or 3 times a year.
Avatar n tn It depends on how long it has been since you got over being sick. Sometimes it takes a while for your tonsils to shrink back down to size. Give it some time. If they are still very swollen, then it'd be a good idea to go to your doctors to have it looked at. They will tell you what is the best option for you.
Avatar m tn About a week ago, I have noticed my tonsils are both swollen and one appears to have deep pockets in it that food gets stuck in, and that I have developed a few bumps that appear in the back of my throat and seems to travel down the back of my throat. I am scheduled to go to my pediatric office again next week but am afraid they will tell me the same thing they told me before.
Avatar f tn Are swollen tonsils a early symptom of HIV? And what should I do if they stay swollen passed a week? How concerned should I be that I may have contracted HIV or anything else?
Avatar f tn For two weeks my tonsils have been swollen with white spots all over them. But i have no other symptoms at all, no fever, headache, rash, cough, congestion or anything else. I've been holding off going to the doctors cause I feel fine, should I wait more or should I make an appointment?

Avatar f tn Thursday morning I woke up to a sore/ scratchy throat. I figured it was from sleeping with my hair a little wet and having the fan on the night before and would go away later in the day. It never went away and continued. Friday was the same thing my throat felt to itchy and irritated I would keep coughing. Friday night it felt gross to swallow my saliva. Saturday it was the same thing so I looked in my mouth and noticed my tonsils were swollen.
Avatar f tn s like every symptom of hiv. I have been on an antibiotic and my tonsils have gone down some, but still swollen and still the white pus there. Feeling of being very tired has really hit hard as well.

Avatar n tn So i had strep thoat and finished taking my course of pencillin vk about a week ago, and my tonsils still havent gone down, and my lymphnodes are still swollen, admittedly i have been putting my finger in my throat to feel my tonsils and they are still pretty big, the white stuffs gone off them but they're still big. When can i expect them to go cause this is driving me nuts, also my tongue sometimes has a thin layer of whiteish colored stuff that brushes off, is this normal?
Avatar f tn Hi, brief introduction; 1-2 weeks ago I developed swollen tonsils with no other symptoms but sore throat, swollen lymph nodes in the neck and basically that was about it. Last week I visited the otolaryngologist and he said it didn`t looked that bad, so he gave me a shot of betamethasone and I've been on clarithromycin for about a week with not much of improvement. Like 3-4 days ago, I've developed White spots in the tonsils and blood mixed with mucus down the back of my throat.
Avatar f tn Tonsils swollen? I used to get this after I threw up or if I went out drinking and smoked cigs... my tonsils would swell and then go down after a day. Maybe they are a little infected or something.
4342171 tn?1353084676 She said that the one that was bothering me was slightly swollen but i have no other swollen lymph nodes. She booked me in for an ultra sound on my neck to check to see why it was swollen again and i've also got a blood test in a few weeks. She told me not to worry but i'm terrified. I'm scared that it's HIV or cancer. I've only ever slept with one person but we didn't use a condom and we had a causal relationship for a while.
Avatar m tn I am now around 48 hours (Sunday) from the potential exposure and my tonsils are still swollen. I knew I was 100% clean as I got tested and was in a monogamous relationship for over 5 years beforehand. I asked her if she was clean and she said yes. I'm freaking out because I have also met a girl that I am very interested in and I'm panicked that I've gotten Herpes (HSV) or another STD and we were all set to go on a date very soon. Do you recommend testing?
Avatar f tn I was really concerned and took her to the doctor that night and he said she had a swollen tonsils. Her antibotics are nearly finished and thank god it has started to go down but I am still really concered. ANy help is welcomed.
Avatar m tn I read what you said, but the problem is that I forgot to write that I have bad tonsils with holes in them and I think they are a link to my bloodstream so I am worried
Avatar f tn It could just be swollen tonsils because of the cold. but go see a doctor.
