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.

Avatar n tn Last year i had unprotected oral sex not too long after my throat was really sore and my tonsils were swollen there were white spots on my tonsils i went to the doctor and i got tested for mono and strep throat i did not have either the doctor gave me penicillin he told me to take it four times a day i started taking it but kind of just stopped after my throat didn't hurt anymore i'm stupid, i know they're still swollen, and i haven't really had any irritation, until now.
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. So the antibiotic sort of worked you know it made the swelling go down and the white spots weren't as bad.
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 My tonsils aren't as sore because I've been staying on top of pain relief and I've been taking the right dosage of antibiotic which my ear infection isn't as bad but tonsils haven't seemed to decrease in size. The white puss spots on my tonsils have also gotten whiter, what does this mean? Also thanks for your help, appreciate it a lot.
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 I know there are tons of posts on here about oral STDs but none have dissuaded my fear. I have had swollen, red tonsils with white spots off and on for the last 2 months and no other real symptoms. It started right after I performed oral sex on a new partner. Strep was negative. I took a Z Pack and the spots went away and the swelling went down considerably (though not totally) until 2 weeks ago when it re-emerged. Took 10 days Ceftin and for the first 6-7 days was looking better.
Avatar m tn Viable information would be that I snore extremely loud and heavy. I'm not sure if the swelling is because of my snoring, as if my tonsils were being irritated or if it may be tonsilitis. Any help would be greatly apprcieated as I do not have access to a doctor right now since I'm visiting my girlfriend in a different country, if need be I could get to one but since there's no pain it doesn't seem like it's a huge deal.

Avatar m tn I got better, but now my tonsils are swollen with white pus on them. They aren't sore at all. They are just swollen again and I don't know why. If any of you know, please let me know!!!
Avatar n tn Within 3 days, I had developed a sore throat and huge swollen tonsils with white splotches all over them. I have seen where white splotches can be indicative of HIV. I went to my Doctor. He did a strep test and also tested for mono. He did not think it was mono, because I am 37 and he said it is highly unusual to have mono at my age. Mono proved negative. As did strep. He gave me a round of antibiotics and it all cleared up. He left it rather nonspecific.
Avatar m tn last night after i brushed my teeth i went reaching for my mouthwash and looked down my throat b4 i used it and noticed white streaks on my tonsils. I put the mouthwash away and did not use it. I get tonsil stones every now and then so at first thought thats maybe what they were. but they are not. they look more like a type of mucus then a harden tonsil stone. my throat is not sore at all and this is the first time ive noticed this. my tonsils may also be slightly swollen, but im not sure.
Avatar m tn Ok, over the past 3 days I have started to have a sore throat looked in the mirror and saw white patches on my tonsils the right one is kinda swollen and when I swallow it hurts not a stinging hurt but more of a sore hurt. I dont have a fever, I dont feel bad. My throat is just irritable. And the white patches look disgusting. I dont have health insurance and at this moment in time i cant afford to go to the Drs. Can someone help me?
Avatar m tn I went to look into the mirror to find the right side of my throat/tonsil (not sure the proper term here) was swollen and red and the left side had white spots. First thing I thought was oh great I'm getting strep. I use to get strep every year and the doctor at one time told me I need to look into having my tonsils taken out do to the chronic strep and they looked inflamed. Well the next day or so the tenderness was gone so I figured it was getting better.

Avatar f tn Recently I got a sore throat, my tonsils are swollen and have white dots on them. The sides of my throat are swollen too. I can't talk and it hurts to swallow. I've got a fever and headache too.. The doctor gave me penicillin. I checked online and found lots of posts, of woman getting the same symptoms I have and people said some stuff about the back of the throat...?

Avatar n tn Today, Thursday, my tonsils are still swollen but seem to have decreased in size and it looks like the condition could clear on its own. My questions are: 1. Does throat gonorrhea does this? I mean, first exhibit sore throat symptoms, then seemingly heals on its own while still being in my system? 2. If I had throat gonorrhea, would I eventually get other symptoms such as pain when urinating, etc? Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn But I did infact have Stomach aches, tiredness and maybe slight fever, tonsils swollen with white stuff on them loss of appetite, body aches, loss weight too. At 33 days after intercourse I went to the clinic and tested negative for hiv. My partner went too and tested negative a week after me. I been having anxiety attacks thinking well maybe he did something to make the test negative. He tells me he doesnt have anything but I just don't believe him idk why.
Avatar n tn Last week i woke up with one of my tonsils swollen and white patches on it. I didn't have any pain or any other symptoms at the time. i went to the doctor and she did a throat culture for strep which came back negative. a couple of days later the white patches went away, and the swelling went down a little but not back to its normal size. I got a cold the next day which then went away after a while but now the white patches are back.

Avatar f tn I just keep getting told pharyngitis. The second time my tonsils were swollen which was a month ago it felt like I was swallowing glass it was so sore. Now here I am a month after he ER visit with swollen tonsils. My throat isn't as sore this time.
Avatar n tn But the sympoms don't quite fit. Both tonsils are swollen and have white spots, not patches. And I can't pick them off like tonsil stones. They look like someone had splashed white paint in the back of my mouth. My breath is horrible and even though both tonsils are swollen, I only have pain in the right one. And I salivate like crazy. No fever, caughing, or sneezing. In fact, other than the tonsils and a little fatigueI feel perfectly fine.
Avatar n tn Fisrt day was fever and sweating with acheing joints and some vomiting. Days 2-10 swollen tonsils with white patches (extremely painful). Now my uvula is swollen and sitting on my tounge. Ok so heres what I have been using to combat this. Gargle with salt water, Drink warm water with honey and lemon, Tylenol for pain (actually works for once), had some fluticasone propionate for nasal congestion (stopped working so switched to afrin) and zinc cough drops.
Avatar n tn I have white patches on one of my tonsils but it doesn't hurt. I just feels like it's a little swollen, but there's really no discomfort at all. What do you think it could be?
Avatar m tn Four days after I hooked up with this guy. I developed white spots on my tonsils, my throat was sore and felt like I had rocks in it, and my neck was swollen, This all went away after 3 and a half days. On the 3rd day of it, I went and had it checked out for strep, and strep test came up negative. I am still waiting on results for the STD tests, but I am having anxiety and can't wait. The guy swears he is completely STD free. Im just wondering if anyone has any idea what it could be.
Avatar f tn Last week I smoke a lot more that what I'm usually used to, from midweek to this day, I've developed swollen tonsils without pus or white spots, just swelling and a little bleeding in my gums while brushing my teeth. Do you think it was the smoking habit what caused this? Or should I be worried for something else?
Avatar n tn My tonsils are severely swollen and there is balls of white all around them. I have ear aches, tingling in the back of my head, night sweats, hard time swallowing. Any suggestions to what I have? I can understand the swollen tonsils, but the tinging and night sweats . . . it's just kinda weird. I had a fever that only lasted 1 day, ever since then the night sweats have been reoccuring.
