I have red tonsils and throat for a month with no pain, cough, sputum or white spots on them. I put cotton on them and i saw blood and pus on it. Why?
Red tonsils: The redness is a sign of inflammation. Tonsils are a lymph gland that can swell with any type of infection. They trap dead/dying white blood cells. The blood is likely from the raw surface due to swelling - and the pus is likely from a low grade viral infection you have. Are you running a fever? I would monitor it for several days. If it continues you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Virus: Viral upper respiratory infections usually start in the throat, spread to the nose and in some cases down to the windpipe and bronchial tubes. If symptoms last longer than 10 days or with fever, shaking chills, sweats or worsening cough, antibiotics and a check up for pneumonia are advisable. Until then a mild cough syrup and gargling with warm salt water is soothing. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for mild fever helps. ...Read more
