White spots on tonsils swollen glands

Common Questions and Answers about White spots on tonsils swollen glands


Avatar n tn 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. I'm pretty sure this is directly related to the stressful situation I've been in, so basically I'm just trying to figure out what treatment I should seek. I've been gargling and wiping down the tonsils.
Avatar n tn My throat was extremely sore, with swollen tonsils and glands, and for about 3-4 days I had 3 white blotches on my right tonsil. Its now almost 3 months later, and my tonsils/glands have remained swollen, but do not hurt. I went to the dr, and he put me on penicillian, but they've only unswelled a little. I also have terrible allergies, especially this time of year, which could be a reason they're swollen. 1. Is it possible that i had gotten herpes (the white spots) in my mouth? 2.
Avatar n tn but the glands in my throat have been swollen (pea sized) for about 3 months now, the back of my throat very red and tonsils seem enlarged . 4 weeks after I had white spots on my tonsils, low grade fever 99.5- 100.4 it was off and on. alittle chills no much, sore throat and cough. negitve strep and mono test . this just sucks.
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 Infection can cause your glands to swell up bad, and when glands are swollen in your neck, it often causes pain when you move your neck or touch the gland with your fingers. Yup I agree with Evie, check your throat for little white spots... if you have tonsils the spots will be on them or if not, they will be on the back of your throat. Get better soon!
1373434 tn?1284820769 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 f tn Do i need to test again later he said no (the test was hiv combo and hepatitis abc ) three days later I developed a sore throat and a swollen glands in the nick with white spots on my tonsils and one on my toungue i am feeling a pain in my joint and muscles too.
Avatar f tn Well that's a relief. The doctors had told me that it looked like tonsillitis and prescribed me penicillin, also for an ear infection I have; she also took a swab of my throat to see is it was the streptococcus infection (strep throat) but I did not get told when the results would be back.
Avatar f tn The discoloration may look like streaks in the back of the throat or blotches on or around the tonsils. In addition to the white spots, your tonsils may feel scratchy and you might find it difficult to swallow. Other symptoms that often accompany white spots on the tonsils include: sneezing a sore throat coughing a fever painful swallowing throat discomfort a stuffy nose a headache body aches and pains swelling of the lymph nodes bad breath Sometimes, you may also have difficulty breathing.
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 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 f tn the sore throat the swollen lymph glands the white coating on your tonsils. Usually this will subside within a week or so...if it should last longer or get worst then that then you should go and see a doctor. hope this helped...take care and i hope you'll feel better soon.
Avatar n tn 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. While these are slowly clearing, the swollen tonsils and redness in the throat have not improved at all. I've read that oral herpes can present as tonsillitis.
Avatar m tn a week later I got sick(4wks after). white spots on my tonsils,pink eye, mild fever off and on, cough, swollen glands and lymph nodes in my neck, and one behind my ear and diarrah. also I started having pain in testies and after getting off. I had a negitive strep and mono spot test, but too ammox just in case. it went away in about 3 days,but have had a sore throat for 3 months and swollen tonsils and glands and SOB or at least pressure in chest area that comes and goes.
Avatar m tn pains all over, cold sweats/chills, became very lethargic and developed very swollen glands and tonsils, with some puss/white spots on tonsils. I didn't necessarily have a fever but I definitley had hot/cold sweats etc. I got tonsillitis exactly around this time last year (almost to the day). I have gone to the GP and they have given me phenoxymethylpenicillin to see if it is in deed tonsillitis.
Avatar n tn A month after that, I got sick with almost the exact same thing except it was a bit worse. I had a swollen sore throat w/white spots, swollen glands, nausea (I did throw up this time) and a tad bit of a fever. My doctor did yet another throat culture.. came back fine. and he put me on a different antibiotic. which worked fine..... but now, I'm kind of afraid. I feel fine now but I read you don't get symptoms til later down the line. I don't know.
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 m tn I think you have done the correct thing by getting the test. You may well have a common yeast infection. I am assuming since you had the test you saw a physician, did the doctor put you on any type of medication at all? Usually when you have white "spots" on your tonsils it is tonsillitis or strep throat, but in your case with the additional exposure to a body fluid it can be a transmittable candida infection or other form of STD.
Avatar n tn 2 days later, March 22, 2008 I developed a throat infection which consisted of swollen tonsils with white matter covered all over the tonsils. On March 26, 2008 I went to the doctor (in NYC as I was on a business trip) and the doc took a throat swab (still waiting for results - dont know why its taking so long). I came back home on friday and went to my home doctor Saturday March 29 where he also took a swab (still waiting for results on that as well).
Avatar m tn Whist after one day, the urethral symptoms totally disappeared, one white lump appeared on my tonsils on the first and second day, and then dissappeared, however the swelling of my tonsils did not subside. I went back to the doctor and he prescribed me Celesemine (Betamethazone 0.5mg / Dexchlorfeniramine malate 4mg) 3 x a day for 4 days. Presumably to see if it was an allergy.
Avatar m tn day 1 - 4 painful urination and spot (both seem to have cleared) day 3-5 swollen and tender glands, day 5 to 10 swollen and painful tonsils, day 8 - 10 sore and swollen gums, day 10 sensitive penis.
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 My throat go a little better over the next 4 days then a week after I went to urgent care I woke up and my tonsils were very swollen and covered in white. My glands were sore in my neck when I pushed on them. The next day the tonsils still very swollen and covered in white and very sore. Is this hiv related?
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?
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 they are pointless in HIV but white spots on tonsils, couch, conjuctivitis, low grade fever. just for reference. However, on a great note I had a undetectable viral load (at GP so Im guessing it was a PCR RNA) and negaitive RPR and surface antibody for Hep B. this was ~10 weeks after this event. Over the course of the next now 3 years I have had abou t20 negaitive HIV tests, oraquick advance HIV1/2 and the last being an actual EIA through my university in Ohio and was negative.
Avatar f tn White spots on the tonsils can indicate exudate, i.e. pus coming out of the tonsils. This would be a form of tonsilitis, possibly even strep, however that does not sound like your case as you have no discomfort with these spots. It's actually failry common for women, or men, to get throat infections after performing oral sex. One way to try to prevent infections is immediately gargaling with anti-bacterial or bacterial fighting agents-mouthwash will do, after the oral sex.
