Strep: You may have a sinus problem that is causing bloody mucus, headaches and formation of tonsillar stones.Consult your doctor or an ear nose and throat specialist for help

Recurrent Strep: Strep throat can recur due to incomplete or incorrect antibiotic course, or from re-exposure. A throat culture would be an ideal test to determine if this has happened, or if you have been unfortunate enough to have gotten another illness such as Mononucleosis or Adenovirus (these viruses are often associated with white patches on the tonsils).
