One swollen tonsil sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about One swollen tonsil sore throat


Avatar m tn If one tonsil is swollen and is painful, it could most probably be due to tonsillitis. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are the other symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Sinusitis can cause a throat infection.
Avatar m tn I have had one swollen tonsil with a white spot for 3 weeks I saw my MD and he advised I had tonsillitis and prescribed Amoxicilan for 10 day. The tonsil is still swollen 3 weeks later durning that time I have been to a i dentist and she informed me that it was still swollen but did not see anything concerning. I have a physical next week. I am wondering how long tonsils can stay swollen and also if it is common for only one tonsil to be swollen?
Avatar m tn In addition to the swollen left tonsil, this was several weeks before the swollen tonsil, I have been having weird tingly feeling on my right mustache and sometimes burning feeling around my lips, at one point I had a re spot develop on the corner of my left side of my mouth while she first say her cold sore that week. We are both waiting for our results from PP maybe the end of this week.
454221 tn?1259449339 I think I feel my right tonsil swollen and it seems to come and go, but for the most part it is swollen. No sore throat. I have had blood test done and methacoline challenge test done. Blood work shows allergies and methacoline challenge test shows it could be vocal cord dysfunction. I still have to see a allergist and speech therapist. My question is does my swollen tonsil have anything to do with this? I also had chest x-ray done and shows thoracic spine changes.
Avatar f tn sore throat, swollen tonsil, earaches, etc. Just no fever this time, otherwise it's the same. What could this be? It seems so odd that this would happen after taking antibiotics twice. Is that just coincidence? Has this happened to anyone else?
Avatar n tn I have a sore throat, only on the left side of my throat. The tonsil is swollen but there is no discoloration or spotting. I frequently get these one-sided sore throats. Why is this? Any advice?
1185164 tn?1264287599 I've been to a doctor before for swollen tonsil pain and tonsil stones. He said it was an infection and prescribed antibiotics. They didn't work at all. The doctor hardly even checked me. Now about 2 months later it hurts more than ever. I can feel how swollen and tender my right tonsil is just by lightly running my fingers under my ear and jawline. I don't even have to press on it. I'm also getting phlegm. I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn should I be concerned that only one of the two tonsils are swollen? My left one is totally fine and my right one is pretty swollen. Thank you.
Avatar n tn However, on the Saturday (19th) I noticed my right tonsil (the one which was first sore in the first place) was starting to get sore again. I continued to take the antib's, but it kept getting worse, and on the following Tuesday 22nd of July, I finished the course of tablets, with my right tonsil now feeling swollen and sore.
Avatar n tn I have a repeated sore throat and is frustrated about what to do. It is only the right tonsil that is swollen and is hurting. I was prescribed pencillin the first time and medicine for pain. It went away and came back. The second time, it lasted 3 days and went away without any medication. It is back again and I am getting worried that it may be serious. I was tested for mono and strep and it was negative. The doctor don't know what is causing it and I am really worried.
Avatar f tn -) During the same time another dr noticed that my right tonsil is swollen (just the right one) and did a swab test which came back negative for any infection, now one dr has said he thinks its a viral infection but another (can never see the same dr twice at our surgery!) has said that they want to send me to an ENT to check what's causing this to ensure it's not cancer.
Avatar n tn About five weeks ago I was diagnosed with Mono and along with all the other syptoms I had swollen tonsils with lots of white pus on them and an extremely sore throat. Now five weeks later I am feeling better and my glands have gone down, the pus on the tonsils is gone but my right tonsil still looks swollen. I've never looked in my mouth before so don't know what it is exactly supposed to look like but my left tonsil looks totally different from my right.
Avatar n tn dark red, or purple, where my right tonsil used to be. My GP didn't seem too concerned, my throat isn't sore, and no swollen glands. He sent me to an ENT...didn't go yet. You have made me feel better.
Avatar m tn The problem is that when I search for symptoms everywhere says that sore throat goes along with that symptom. I do not have a sore throat. 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.
Avatar m tn Starting a week ago I started to experience a sore throat, then one white spot showed up on my throat and one tonsil became swollen. Since that I have been taking antibiotics and my throat is not sore all the time and swelling has reduced. Everyonce in awhile i get a little bit of a sore throat but not bad. I have had a really runny nose and allergies. Could this be hiv or what do you think?
Avatar n tn no spots (no strep) but one very big swollen tonsil. No doubt part of a Q-tip injury where I think I aggravated my ear and started a small infection (I know I shouldn't but it feels so good sometimes!!) Started out by taking Advil (2 tabs..500mg?) and gargling with salt water. Then took 1000mg of Vitamin C. Taking a antihistamine to dry up the nasal drip helped a lot (I took a Aller-clear, like Claritin, thinking the nasal drip might be related to allergies.
Avatar n tn * Fatigue * Weakness * Sore throat, perhaps a strep throat that doesn't get better with antibiotics * Fever * Swollen lymph nodes in your neck and armpits * Swollen tonsils * Headache * Skin rash * Loss of appetite * Soft, swollen spleen * Night sweats it could be any one of these symptoms, not all. symptoms usually go away, so i wouldn't be too worried.
Avatar n tn The one doctor that i recently saw also said it was normal and I probably just have another infection(because of sore throat and swollen neck). My strep came back negative. Within the last 2 or 3 years all my strep tests have come back negative. I requested that my tonsils be taken out and got a referal to an ENT specialist but haven't made an apointment yet.
Avatar n tn I was concerned about HIV and if having one swollen tonsil with no fever and swollen lymph nodes were symptoms and if the cancre sores are all related of could they be sepearate issues?
Avatar n tn Recently i checked my tonsils, and the left one is gone! Like... it isn't there at ALL, and to the left of my throat where the tonsil used to be there is what looks like an oval-shaped hole in my throat. I've had a persistent painful throat for the last three months now and now that my tonsil has randomly disappeared im wondering if something is going on. I went to the doctor today and he kind of rabbited on about blood tests....
Avatar n tn Anyone have tonsil stones with a sore throat and referred ear pain? I've had a mild sore throat for about the past 6 months, but my doctor told me it was probably allergies and to do a nasal flush every day. I've never had allergies in my life. My nose doesn't run. My eyes don't itch. It's not very convincing to me. I want my tonsils out just to get rid of these stones and sore throat!
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I have a sore throat with tonsil plugs for 3 days now, fever which lasted for one and a half day (it reached 39 Celcius) but now I have not. The most worrying part is that since yesterday I have swollen glands and an ithcy rush on the inner side of my wrists, forearms and arms, the inner side of my thighs and the upper part of my feet.
Avatar f tn I also have slight vaginal irritation that gets better and worse just like the sore throat. About a month ago, I noticed two white patches on my right tonsil. One went away, but the other one is still there. I have been tested for bacterial infection and strep throat and the results were negative. Could anyone provide any infomation on what the cause of my sore throat might be?
Avatar f tn Yesterday and today I've had somewhat of a sore throat? I think it's dryness but there is some soreness that I believe is caused by a combination of the itchiness and dryness. The weird part about this is, it's only one tonsil. I looked with a flashlight in a mirror and my tonsils didn't look quite swollen at all (I don't look at my tonsils really so I can't be 100% sure). Although, the left side of my neck hurts a little bit.
Avatar f tn Im stuck i dont have any other symptoms than a sore throat and a swollen tonsil... I imagine it is... Gerd? Esophagitis?
Avatar m tn The reason why I asked is because i am at about 11 weeks since exposer, and three weeks ago one tonsil became swollen and I had one white spot in my throat. The spot was not very big and I went to the GP and said it was post nasal drip. I had the spot suction out which it was like a small indention and since has not came back. Is this something that I need to worry about?
