Throat infection on one side

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection on one side

throat

Avatar n tn I have pain in the back of my throat only on one side and it feels as if the very back of my tongue on that side could also be feeling some pain. It is not a burning sensation like a normal sore throat but more of life an ache that is amplified every time I swallow. This just started about 5 days and wasn't too bad until today when it became much worse. What could this be and what can I do for the pain?
Avatar f tn For the past two days, my right side of the throat hurts a lot, kind of the ear too, and the tonsil. I don't know why. I don't have a fever or any other bad symptoms. My stepmother says it's probably a small infection that will go away on its own. I also have mild TMJ on that side of my mouth, so maybe that has something to do with it. I have an enlarged lymph node, and my tonsil is slightly enlarged, but not very much.
Avatar n tn Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure if a cavity would do it or not. Something as simple as acne or razorburn could do it, though. I actually have a bit of a lymph node that I can feel in the same location (there isn't one on the other side that's palpable), but I don't think there's anything wrong with me. It's possible that some lymph nodes are just different. The ENT should be able to tell you if that's actually true.
Avatar m tn hi,relax,it is throat infection may be associated with ulcerations.A course of antibiotic along with antiseptic gargles and pain killers will help.May be some local anesthetic spray would be helpful. Please consult ENT sugeon to rule out other possibities. Relax and take care!
279234 tn?1363105249 Yup, had that a lot. It could well be associated with a sinus infection, where gunk (like my medical terminology?) is dripping onto the back of your throat on one side. I 'm thinking that especially since you complain of one-sided lymph node swelling too. Your allergy activity could have started it all. The usual OTC remedies often work well for this, but if it goes on long you might want to see you PCP.
1760651 tn?1313087439 I have severe congestion on one side of my face with some on the other, but not as severe. It started 2 nights ago now and I am miserable. I have a neti pot and due to my left side being completely blocked, have been unable to use it today. Yesterday, I was able to use the neti pot with success, which lasted for almost an hour before the left side 'blocked up' again.
Avatar f tn I called back today and said my throat still hurts, it is now on my left side, it was on both sides. It hurts to swallow, feel dry and it feels like the outer part of my throat is swollen, my lymph nodes are sore and very tender to touch. I have to see my doctor today at 1pm in one hour. What else could be causing this? I have no fever, no runny noses, and no mucus. I have had my ears stuffed up, but they are no longer stuffy.
Avatar m tn From 2 days ago i started having a sore throat on the right side of my throat. I only feel the pain when i swallow food/saliva. If i dont swallow there is no pain. I had a dental cleaning 4 days ago and i had extreme bleeding of my gum because they were very infected. But the Dental Hyg took care of it. I dont know if its related or not but what do you guys think is the problem here. I can't see my family doctor until Monday so i dont know what i should do.
Avatar m tn For last 5 weeks I have this recurrent tonsil swelling on my right tonsil, feels like something is stuck in throat, it comes and goes away in few days. During last one month my tonsil swelling occurred thrice, out of which I got pus in the tonsil twice. My ENT specialist told it is most likely because of food allergies, infection from post nasal dripping or acidity. She treated it with antibiotics, anti allergics and anti acidics (to control acid reflux).
Avatar f tn It is throbbing and causing drainage to the back of my throat. It seems to only be the right side. The left side of my nose feels completely normal. It's much more sensitive to smells and breathing now. I'm not sure if this might have something to do with having small nostrils or not. I haven't had any nosebleeds, but I did nearly faint tonight after touching it for a moment to see if the swelling had gone down. Any ideas of what this could be?
Avatar m tn Went to the county STD clinic and told them of my sore throat. It on only on the right side and feels like it is more under my tongue. Asked if I could get swabbed for gonorrhea. She said it doesn't look like it and swabbed me for strepp. I got and HIV and std test have to wait 10 days for results. Now I made an appointment with an ENT but have to wait til the 9th. I think the medical profession is getting really dumbed down. Now I have to sweat this for 10 days.
Avatar m tn (Could just be that daytime activities take my mind away from it.) But I also have what I think is tonsil craters that develop stones on one side -pictured-(same side that the caught in throat feeling comes from). The tonsil thing isn't new, maybe 1.5 years or so. Also, a new development today, I have felt some "pressure?" in the ear on the side with the weird tonsil.

Avatar n tn This sequence of events suggests that your one-sided tonsillar enlargement was preceded by an upper respiratory infection. The enlargement of only one tonsil with infection is quite unusual and is sometimes associated with the development a peri-tonsillar abscess. That is the development of a collection of pus in the tissue surrounding the tonsil. This is a serious situation and one that definitely warrants medical intervention.
Avatar n tn Keep getting a sore throat feeling on one side. can see red lumps coming on too-gettign bigger-there is a white spot too with black middle like it has bled. Have funny lumps on side of tongue too-worried as grandfather had throat cacer.
Avatar n tn scaring myself as got soreness on one side of throat and strange blue marks coming on tongue plus funny bump too on one side of it.
Avatar m tn My lymph nodes in my neck were huge and tender and the nodes in my armpits were off and on. My groin nodes were also swollen on my right side. The fever subsided after a day and half as did the sore throat but it took a little longer. My lymph nodes went down, though my armpits are still sporadically swollen, usually when I exert myself.
Avatar n tn Also, 4 weeks after the incidient i developed a sore throat which 5 weeks on has developed into an itchy throat with lumps spreading around the inside of my mouth towards the back of my throat. They are not painful but are itchy. My doc says my throat is red and the spots are ulcers. But I thought ulcers were painful and not itchy. Is this a symptom of gonnarea, chlymadia or warts in my mouth.
