Is it possible to have herpes on one tonsil? Tonsil is swollen and has 5 tiny canker sore like ulcers. Didn't have blisters. Lymph nodes are swollen.
Herpes in the mouth: Well depending on 'what happened' recently I would include herpes as a possibility. Herpes ulcers generally form at the site where they invaded.

There are other causes for an ulcer back there, so I do recommend getting seen. ...Read more

Sounds like it: This definitely fits the description for herpes.

If culture comes back negative, then you can stop the drug, but at least you're starting to protect yourself. Be sure to discuss with any relevant partners too, . ...Read more
