Avatar m tn A week later I notice my tonsils were swollen and had some white patches/spots. Consulted my doctor and he prescribed a stronger anti biotic (ampicillin) for which I took the complete dose. Saw no change (still white spots on swollen tonsils,NO PAIN). I further go prescribed augmentin tablets which I swallowed complete dose but nothing has changed. I am now confused. what the hell could this be. Anyone had a similar experience, please share.
Avatar n tn I have no idea what's going on with my tonsils. Three days ago I started to have a terrible sore throat. I didn't think much about until it didn't go away and it didn't feel quite like a sore throat. For one the pain wasn't where it normally would be. I started to panic when I finally looked in the mirror and saw white spots all over both tonsils. I went to the doctor and they told me I didn't have strep.
Avatar f tn My tonsils were really swollen w/white patches on them. I could barely swallow. I was running a fever. I also had an ear ache in my left ear. I ended up going to the health food store and getting silver colloidal. It seems to be working I am feeling better and the swelling has gone down and the white patches are almost gone. My ears still feel a little plugged. I am not 100% better but getting there. I am still rinsing w/salt water and peroxide. Thank You for the info.

Avatar m tn I have developed white patches at the back sides of my mouth and also red bumps (in patches) and white bumps randomly. If I put much pressure on the white bumps they pretty much go away. Also, especially in the past few days I have been getting dizzy and light headed. I haven't been feeling like myself. Does anyone know what could possibly be wrong? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn I have white spots on one side of my tonsils ( right side) and on the same side the lympnodes is tender to the touch and slightly swollen. No fever, or any other symptoms. Realized yesterday my lympnodes was diffrent and today i noticed the patches because i felt something odd when i swallowed...what could it be?..dnt have insurance at the moment, want to avoid out of pocket if its nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn Enlarged, tender tonsils with white patches in the throat, sore throat noted couple days now gone, no nasal secretions or head ache, one day of joint aches are these something to be concerned about, no fever, symptoms are improving w/ vit c doses. thanks grammie 56 This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/245832'>oral transmission of STD's, what are the symptoms?</a>.
Avatar n tn Two days ago, my tonsils began to become swollen with white patches on them. My throat does not burn, I do not have a fever, just uncomfortable to swallow because of the swollen tonsils. The white on my tonsils can be scraped off and is only on the tonsil. What could this be? Are the bumps on the floor of my mouth connected to what's going on with my tonsils? I'm actually more concerned with the bumps under my tongue because I think I have tonsilithes.
Avatar n tn My symptoms are sore tonsils, Low grade fever, around 99 to 100, chills. Looks like small white spots or patches forming and the tonsils seem irritated and swollen. sincerely, Paul, thanks guys for all your wonderful help.
Avatar f tn Could a genital herpes outbreak cause swelling in one of my tonsils along with two small white patches on my tonsil? Only one of my tonsils is affected by this and there is no pain. I have not been tested for herpes but I suspect that I was exposed to it a week and a half ago.
Avatar f tn I am a male, 28 and last week I had oral sex with a woman. Three days after I got one swollen tonsil with slight pain when swallowing and white spots on tonsil. I went to the ER and they tested me for mono and strep. Which came back negative. Now they tested me for STD's and I am still waiting those results but I do not have fever and no pain anymore. However the tonsils have grown and now my right one is affected too.
Avatar f tn t know if my tonsils are swollen or not but it looks as if so. There is a bit of white patches on both sides of throat by uvula. Also my tongue is always dry! I don't know exactly what's wrong. Anyone have any idea?
Avatar f tn I have swollen tonsils with white patches on them, swollen lymph nodes in my neck and left ear hurts when I swollow. I that kind of achy I'm sort of sick yuck feeling. Some sinus pressure but very little mucous. No fever. I just got over step about a month and half ago. The white patches have me worried could it really be this again. My 3 kids are getting over a nasty upper respitory infection with very high 104+ fevers and ear infections. They are all on antibiotics now.
1373434 tn?1284820769 ve learned I can force a lot of my throat out to be displayed. I can see behind my tonsils, and It looks purple. There are also white patches and I get a lot of lumps on my tonsils. I went to the doctors and the doctor told me I had normal tonsils for a 23 year old, but I disagree. Does anyone else inspect their throat? What can they see? I'm really worried I have throat cancer. Please help!
Avatar m tn My left tonsil is red and really swollen, it doesn´t really have any white patches or it or anything. The right side is also pretty red but not swollen. Most of the pain feels like its coming from behind the tonsil, or way back of the tongue/throat, and i don´t have to be swallowing for it to hurt. Sometimes it just starts hurting, and it feels like it´s burning and stinging. Kind of the same feeling if you have an ulcer on your lip and something salty gets in it.
Avatar m tn In the morning, I looked at my tonsils and they were swollen and had white patches. I google a bit on it and came to know that it could be strep throat since symptoms indicated it but I dont have the associated fever/tiredness. I do have a slight discomfort swallowing but it not a big deal. Could it be something else. I decided to wait a day or two before consulting a doctor. What is everyones opinion. Attaching a pic of the inflamed tonsils.
Avatar f tn Hi guys, i developed tonsils since 5 months ago however since then i also developed red bump and also white patches like oral thrush on the back of my mouth.. And also swollen lymph nodes on my throat How do i get rid of this? And also they are painless.. Can anyone explain?
Avatar n tn Since October 2017 I've had issues with my tonsils. I first noticed I had a foul taste in my mouth, one that no matter how many mints I ate or mint water I drank it was still overwhelmingly there, a nasty sore throat and white patches on my tonsils. I just left it, and didn't go to the doctor at first, yet while the white patches started to go, the tonsils got bigger. The taste buds on the back of my mouth became huge.
Avatar n tn I am a 20 year old female. About a week ago I found I was having difficulty swallowing, as I knew it would take a while before I could get in to see my regular doctor I went to a walk in clinic. The doctor there looked at my tonsils and told me I had tonsillitis (he also did a throat swab). He said he could see little while bumps on my tonsils and prescribed anti biotics.
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 f tn About a week ago however i got sick, and thought i just had an upper respiratory infection with swollen tonsils. Then i noticed white patches all over my mouth, and promptly went to the Dr. who said it looked like a herpetic infection. I told him about my history of genital HSV-1, and he procedeed to do another IgG test. My results came back positive for HSV-1 (not a surprise) and the IgG number was 56. He told me the normal range is 0.0 - 0.
Avatar n tn Tonsils that have white spot/s on them is a typically a good indicator that you have an active infection of some kind going on. They can appear with viruses as well as bacterial infections and occasionally with STD's. Are you able to bring up any colored phlegm/sputum when you cough? Do you have an elevated temperature? Do you have any burning/pain in your chest or in your upper back? Do you feel run down and tired?
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 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?
