Tonsils swollen white spots

Common Questions and Answers about Tonsils swollen white spots


Avatar n tn I have white dots on my tonsils but I'm not in pain they're not swollen I haven't got sick in a while and I haven't had a fever should I be concerned ??
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 3 weeks after that i was back at the dr. with swollen tonsils still and sore throat with white spots again, strep! put on antibiotics. tonsils went down alittle, white spots gone, throat better. 4 weeks after that back at the dr. with still swollen tonsils and sore throat, tonsillitis again! i was sent to an ENT. now it's july, the ENT does a CT scan and says i need surgery on my "pads", deviated septum, "weed wack" my nose.
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 I've gave oral sex to my boyfriend on the weekend and now I have really swollen tonsils and they have lots of puss spots which are extremely swollen and very painful. I went to the doctors and they gave me penicillin but said if it was an infection (I think) it wouldn't work. I have been taking paracetamol for pain and ibuprofen now which has helped a lot but not sure if the swelling is going down. I looked at them again and the puss spots seem to have gotten more white, what does this mean?
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 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 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 I've had swollen tonsils for about 2 weeks now and they haven't seemed to have gotten any smaller. The left tonsil is a bit larger than the right one which makes it a bit painful to swollow, simply because it's swollen. I don't actually have any pain at all, rather than my left ear hurting a bit, it's more annoying since I can feel that it's too big. I've been taking the typical advil liquids to try and calm down the swelling, and sucking on throat lozenges to ease any pain I do have.
Avatar n tn Signs and tests The health care provider will look in the mouth and throat for enlarged, visible tonsils. They are usually reddened and may have white spots on them. The lymph nodes of the jaw and neck may be enlarged and tender to the touch. A culture of the tonsils may show bacterial infection. A culture for the streptococcus bacteria (strep) may be taken because it is the most common and most dangerous form of tonsillitis.
Avatar f tn then i had a mono test done but the results haven't came back yet. my tonsils are swollen and red. no white spots but there is one blood spot. it looks like somethings like eating away my tonsils. what could this be?
Avatar n tn He looked at my tonsils and told be to invest in a Water Pik and clean your tonsils daily.
Avatar n tn I have been under extreme stress recently, and haven't had much of an appetite. Recently my tongue has had a thick white coating with red spots toward the front half. My tonsils are a little swollen and a little sore, with some minor white flecks. The glands on the side of my next are just slightly swollen, but not really sore. Also, I've been somewhat congested lately, but I have no other symptoms of illness/cold/allergies.
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 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 n tn by Kittricks, 2 minutes ago I used to have these white spots in my tonsils and I could actually dig them out, it was gross and they smelled bad. . I had them for a few years and was told it was allergies and I was given a nasal spray. Do they sometimes fly out of your mouth when you cough or laugh?  Do you have more than one?  I had a few in each tonsil and I went to my ENT, he took one look and say "oh yeah, you have tonsillitis, those has to come out".
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 Hundreds of things, all more common than HIV or thrush, cause white spots on the tonsils. And your other symptoms. No follow-up questions/comments, please. There is no further information you can provide that would modify my opinion. If you're concerned about the white spots, see a health care provider.
Avatar f tn They started off covered in white spots but they have now gone but my tonsils are growing and are now touching each other which is making swallowing food difficult. I have had a biopsy but am waiting for the results to see if it is cancer and i am really scared !!
Avatar f tn I have never had issues w my tonsils ever in my life, but after we had unprotected they got swollen and white spots on them a week after. Doctor said it wasn't strep or mono, but claims it was tonsil stones. Both bf and I are clean for stds, but all of this didn't start until after unprotected sex. Could stress/anxiety cause this cus I am suffering from both? Could it be an std? I don't know a lot about tonsils so any insight would be good.
Avatar n tn Two and a half weeks ago, I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex with a new guy I'm dating. Two days after our encounter, I woke up with a red, itchy throat, swollen tonsils and a white coating on my tongue. I also had all of the symptoms of a yeast infection. I went to my doctor to have all of the STD tests run and am awaiting the results. I also was given treatment for oral thrush and vaginal yeast.
Avatar m tn Hi, almost one month ago i had sore throat without having a cold, fever, chills but only pain when i was swallowing and i didnt even thought to check if i had white spots on my tonsils. i dont remember if the lymphs of my neck were swollen . another thing is that the pain was moving from side to side , for one two days were on the left, the next they were on right and the next on the center.
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 f tn Within the past day or two I've noticed a few small white spots on my tonsils while also experiencing a sore throat. My tonsils are slightly swollen as well. I've tried picking at them with my finger but they don't seem to come off - they're sort of mucus-like (not hard). Also it hurts to swallow. On my right tonsil there are a couple dots of white and on my left tonsil it looks a little stringy (which is why I thought it was just mucus). Any idea what this could be?
Avatar m tn Since the age or 24, I have always gotten a sore throat, swollen tonsils with white spots, followed by a fever after giving oral sex to partners. I have gotten throat cultures each time and only once did I have Strep Throat. Every other time, it's come back negative and I am STD free. Each doctor's visit, Im giving antibiotics and Im good a week later. I am now 39 and have sex about once or twice year, because I can't stand being out sick with a fever and sore throat.
