1873691 tn?1320350220 The symptoms I'm showing for strep are: 1. White spots on tonsils 2. Tonsils are sore/swollen (not extremely painful though, I can still talk, sing and eat without a problem but they are somewhat sore) Those are the only two symptoms I'm showing for strep but I don't know if it is strep or just a cold.
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 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 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 So I had chlamydia about a month ago, approximately, and my tonsils were very swollen, so when I got treated for the chlamydia they prescribed me azithromycin, so I took the medication and within a week my symptoms were going away one by one by my tonsils still are very swollen to this day and they don't seem to be going down, ive always had generally large tonsils but never this large. My tonsils have these little holes in them and sometimes the holes with have puss in them.
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 She advised 2 weeks off of work. She had to go to the ER 7 days post op due to bleeding. They had to cauterize the tonsils due to a ruptured blood vessel. My ENT told me this happens in 1 out of 6 surgeries!!! Yikes!
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 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 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 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 n tn The question is whether it is a likely enough possibility that I would need to pay (no insurance) again to go back to the doctor or whether the symptoms are not likely to be caused by a STD. I understand the people on this forum cannot diagnose and it is just another person's input, but I would appreciate ANY input as to whether the symptoms would make sense for something like an STD. Also, would an oral STD respond to an antibiotic? Thank you for your feedback!
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 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 f tn I was told that ars symptoms can come and go. Is this so? Does ars cause swollen tonsils, headache, feeling hot, soreness behind eyes? I have a new partner who says he is fine. I feel like something is very wrong. I am a 33 year old female who has never had tonsil problems before. Please help.
Avatar n tn hi,chronic tonsil infections and enlarged tonsils can lead to a condition called chronic cryptic tonsillitis. The tonsils contain many small pockets and infoldings called crypts, which can trap small food particles and other debris. Relax,if tonsils are not congested and you are not experiencing fever,all is fine. Bye and take care!
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 f tn hi, i've read a few of the post's, and that's all I had to read to see that most of you are suffering from the same thing I am. when I swell up I get very angry, not at family, friends, or myself etc., but at the pain, what makes it worst is when people don't understand you or believe you and you don't want to get mad at them so you hold it in. I first swelled up randomly if I remember at age 17. My hands were swollen as well as my ankles and the bottom of my feet.
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.
4430758 tn?1354482428 But my tonsils are swollen, with specks of puss on it. I went to the ER the day before thanksgiving and the doctor ran a test and said that I have Acute Pharyngitis. Is that a bad thing? Anyway, he gave me some steroids to take for three days. It stopped it from getting worse but it didn't help it go away. The whole time it was completely painless, but it was annoying. I think it has something to do with my allergies. But I also gave a guy oral sex.
Avatar f tn I'm pretty sure i have strep throat but cant afford to go to the dr.
Avatar m tn A recent Upper Endoscopy showed 1 small erosion and my lower tonsils (going down my throat) are the size of grapes. At a recent visit to an ENT I was told acid reflux can aggravate the tonsils. Wait a month and go on Protonix (Pantoprazole) and come back. What is the point? I have been on Omeprazole since September 2nd - over 7 weeks and the Endoscopy (done on 10/21) showed my tonsils are the size of grapes!
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 f tn 8 days after the second incident with him I had a sore throat and swollen tonsils with no fever. I did feel kinda run down. I went to the urgent care clinic and the strep culture was negative. My throat go a little better over the next 4 days then a week after I went to urgent care I woke up and my tonsils were very swollen and covered in white. My glands were sore in my neck when I pushed on them. The next day the tonsils still very swollen and covered in white and very sore.
