Throat ulcers on tonsils

Common Questions and Answers about Throat ulcers on tonsils


Avatar f tn I agree with AnnieBrooke - you need to be seen by a different doctor! And preferably an ear, nose and throat doc! When you have a throat so sore that you can barely swallow, can't eat at all and have ulcers on your tonsils, SOMETHING definitely needs to be done! Did your doc even bother to do a strep test or anything? Strep throat can also cause ulcers in the throat and mouth and strep is definitely something that neeeds to be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I have something similar on my tonsils and I'm worried. There are at least 2 bumps on my tonsils that are smallish and kind of clear/skin colored. Any updates would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have had several puss pockets on my tonsils for several days now but have not had any other symptoms of having been sick or being sick. What could this be? This discussion is related to <a href=''>virus in nose and throat</a>.
Avatar f tn 4 and a sore throat with little red dots on the roof of her mouth. The next day she had white on her tonsils and then the next day everything started to clear up. Needless to say I (mom ) now have the worse sore throat in my life! It started out with very swollen tonsils and white on them as well. Day 4 and the white spots are now ulcer like sores and I have sores on the back of my tounge and roof of my mouth. What could it be?
1637775 tn?1300841064 Came home, was playing with my kids and had my dog slam her head into my chin from beneath which caused me to violently bite my tounge. A gash on either side. Tuesday night my throat started to hurt but it wasn't really my throat is was the little flaps of skin right in front of my tonsils. When i looked I found the beginning of an ulcer on either side. This is my first question...would or could the trama to the tounge cause an ulcer to form in a different location of my mouth?
5054727 tn?1362955307 I was suffering from tonsillitis (swollen tonsils) and some mouth ulcers during this, and I saw a little bit blood/redness on my tonsils after the oral. Should I get tested?
Avatar m tn A little over a week ago, I perfomed oral sex to a friend of mine. I just noticed white spots at the back of my throat, namely the tonsils. They aren't inflamed or swollen, just white spots. they don't hurt or anything. Could this be tonsilitis or some kind of std/sti? no pain or discomfort as of yet, I'm planning to get them check out. but for a small peace of mind for now, can anyone tell me what they might be?
Avatar f tn i have a bad ulcer on my tonsils after a really bad sore throat and they tested me for strep but it came back negative. I went to a specialist today and he put me on an antibiotic, what could of caused this and is it normal to feel like something is stuck in my throat?
Avatar n tn better improvement in throat but still see white-ishness on both tonsils. Drinking/swallowing much easier though some tenderness but glad I'm recovering. Appreciate your advice. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Apply chlorhexidine gel or any other oral anti septic gel you can find twice daily on your mouth ulcers and leave it on for 2 mins and then do warm salt water gargles. Drink or eat half hour after application. Take OTC multivitamins rich in riboflavin to counter the mouth ulcers. If it still persists consult your dentist. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Kind of the same feeling if you have an ulcer on your lip and something salty gets in it. This same sensation also occurs on the right side. I tried looking for any ulcers but because of the tonsils (like i said the pain feels like it´s behind the tonsils) i cannot see. At the moment the spot on the left side is constantly aching causing me a mild headache and earache. My throat was examined by throat culture for angina but the test was negative.
Avatar n tn I have an ultra big ulcer on my tonsils which was diagnosed as ulcer on a tonsil by a General Practictioner (Doctor) 1 week ago. he gave me some anti biotics for a week. but this Ulcer on my left tonsil is around for 4 weeks and it just wouldn't go away. I can still eat and drink normally but with a little discomfort and it is healing very slowly. this is the first time im having this problem.
Avatar f tn then i developed a sore throat again and noticed some ulcers or bumps around my tonsils. Thet were like ***** pockets. Sometimes the pus would go away and it seems to be cured and then again the pus rebuilds and it causes pain and these ***** bumps wont go away. Is it normal acne in my throat that we go get on face or is it something else. I also went to GP and again he prescribed antibiotics that didnt work, i told him so he changed the antiviotics twice..
Avatar f tn So over the past few months I have been having a lot of problems with ulcers near my throat and they really hurt! I've been getting more generalized mouth ulcers all over, but the worst big nasty ones keep appearing on my soft palate next to the uvula on either side. I keep getting multiple ones on my tonsils and they really hurt! I tend to feel sick when I get them and always think I'm coming down with strep throat again until I look and see the ulcers.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had burning in throat, my doctor said it is because of gastric issue and after taking some medicine of Gastric for 10 days, it is fine now. Later, there were sores in my mouth- from inner side of cheeks to tongue. My doctor said that it can be because of Vitamin deficiency. I am taking vitamin tables.
Avatar n tn more specifically my tonsils are covered in bits of white and red, large oblong (4 or so altogether on both sides, 1 on the left, 3 on the right) ulcers. The ulcers have a thin white edge with a dark red center that follows the oblong shape. I know there is a rare form of herpes that infects the throat, especially for those in their 20s such as myself, does this sound like herpes, and if anybody has had throat herpes can they be specific.
Avatar n tn t had a sore throat, mouth ulcers, diarrhoea, a rash or anything that resembles ARS as I here that ARS symptoms generally occur if they ever do 2-4 weeks. I'm scheduled to get tested again in a week, but my question is, do fevers in ARS occur so late after exposure 42 days post? Are fevers, associated with ARS, normally short and run low (101°f)? Do tonsils generally swell and display white spots during ARS? Or could the state of my Tonsils be telling of a different but infection?
Avatar f tn I have lots of ulcers in the back of my throat, here is a picture of my throat: I first noticed these ulcers when I had a sore throat 3 months ago. I went to my GP and he told me they were either due to a viral or bacterial infection and would go on their own. He told me to gargle Corsodyl. I did and they haven't changed. I have also tried gargling salt water, L-lysine but nothing has helped at all.
Avatar f tn Most often, I got at least 5 ulcers around my mouth/tongue. Then an on and off fever and my throat/tonsils is very painful. Yellowish spots are all over. Please help me.
Avatar f tn About a week ago my throat started hurting and I checked it out my self and noticed several small blisters in the back of my throat that looked like small ulcers. I also noticed the corners where my tonsils used to be have also slightly turned white.
Avatar n tn gp diagnosed me with tonsilitis got tested same day at sex clinic and a week later tested positive for throat gonorrhea. symptoms were inflammed right tonsil with ulcers, fever, night sweats and sore throat-hard to swallow. gp diagnosed antibiotics and throat specialist booked me in for tonsilectomy on oct 17th. sex clinic prescribed antibiotic injection and 2 pills to take orally. 7 days since that treatment from sex clinic and its all calmed down now.
Avatar m tn I have ulcers all over my throat by my tonsils, the back of my tongue and the roof of my mouth they have caused alot of pain and discomfort my voice is horse and I also got a cold and cough. the cold has gone and the cough is almost gone but was initially making my ulcers worse, i went to the doctor and assumed it was herpes virus without testing it.
Avatar f tn All sores are inside the mouth (none at all on the outside of the mouth or around the lips - ever), on the soft palate around the mouth and on the sides and underside of the tongue and below, not the gums and not inside the throat but on the soft palate of the throat - in front of the tonsils.
245504 tn?1224099316 There are some white spots on tonsils but can be wiped off with a Q-tip. Other than the sore throat, I have no symptoms. I have a few questions. 1) First, what are the odds of catching a cold sore when she did not have one present at the time? I know there can be asymptomatic shedding but still what is the likelihood? 2) Can a sore throat be the only symptom? 3) If this throat infection were indeed herpes, would I be able to wipe the spots away with a Q-tip? Please help. Very worried.
Avatar n tn i know it is 7 days/1 week until any sexual contact again. my question is, if its in my throat can i only pass it on by performing oral sex? kissing? If so does that mean I can still receive oral sex or have sex with a condom with no risk of passing it on within the 1 week period?
Avatar f tn Except for a period when he went about 4 months without any problem, he gets the infections about every three to four weeks or so. On occasion, if his throat is only a little red, he will get over it on his own. But more often that not, his throat is very infected and ulcers develop so that he needs an antibiotic. He doesnt get Strep or Tonsilitis.
