i have a sore thorat with a yellow blister can it be strep throat?

Possibly

Diphtheria
A sore throat with a yellow blister type lesion could be Strep, other bacteria, a viral infection, or tonsillolith (tonsil stone). Hard to say. If it hurts badly or doesn't go away in a couple of days, get it checked out.

Do you think I should see a doctor if I have a soar throat with no symptoms of strep throat?

Strep throat sxs

Neck-throat
Sxs of strep throat can include: pain of throat; large, red tonsils with white exudates; small red dots on roof of the mouth; swollen lymph nodes on neck; fever, headache, rash, difficulty swallowing, fatigue or rash. If you just have a mild sore throat with none of the above - it is more likely that you have a viral infection & may not need a med eval.

If you have been exposed to someone with strep throat, then you should be evaluated and treated. Untreated strep throat can have other more serious complications. You should be evaluated. There are several urgent cares available that have generous policies for patients without insurance. Call around and see if you can find an option that you can afford.

I have Strep throat at least three times a year plus many sore throats. The ER doctors say I should have my tonsils removed,is it safe as an adult?

See own doc

Adenoidectomy
Decisions on whether you need surgical intervention for a chronic problem should not be coming fro an ER doc. You need to discuss this with a primary care doctor or with an ENT doctor for your particular case of recurrent throat infections. While the surgery is generally safe, there can always be complications from bleeding, infection, anesthesia. That's why you need to talk to your personal doc!

Why do I keep getting these random sore throats. I have had strep like 3 times. I don't think its strep. I work with kids could that be it?

Congestion

Neck-throat
A stuffy nose at sleep time can leave you with recurrent sore throats. But, before you assume that is the cause and start a nasal steroid, get a proper throat culture and nasal exam

Visited an ENT for reoccurring swollen, sore throats, and step throat. He paid me no attention and said come back. I decided to go to an ENT because I want to have my tonsils removed. Since childhood I have suffered from reoccurring sore throats, strep th

I'm

I'm sorry you had this bad experience. It sounds like you have more than an adequate history and continuation of symptoms to justify the procedure. If you were dissatisfied with the time spent with your ENT, or perceived an unwillingness to offer you a fair explanation of his rationale for not offering surgery as an alternative, I personally would seek a second opinion elsewhere. Before getting another ENT opinion, it may be worthwhile to discuss your problems and concerns with the prospective physician over the phone to assess his receptivity to offering you a tonsillectomy.
