See ENT: I believe an ENT doctor will be able to help you on this. I would leave it alone if you have no symptoms but if you have a lot of discomfort from it, then something (including tonsillectomy) needs be done. ...Read more

Very Swollen tonsils coated with a ton of white puss and now one of my Tonsils has what looks to be a black and blue bruise mixed with puss. Currently?

Doctor can check: It's not easy to see and describe one's own tonsils. Throat and tonsil symptoms can be from flu or cold viruses, strep throat, EBV virus, etc... Doctors have 5-minute tests for strep throat (antibiotics are needed to treat strep). Doctors also have a quick test for Flu A and B. Mono is caused by the EBV virus and can cause big tonsils. One's primary care doctor can examine the throat. ...Read more

Lymphnode on armpit randomly started hurting and causing bruising. With body aches and swollen tonsils. Worried I could have hiv.?

Lymphnode on armpit randomly started hurting and causing bruising. With body aches and swollen tonsils. Worried I could have hiv.?

Doubt HIV but see MD: HIV rarely causes enlargement or inflammation of a single lymph node. Your other symptoms go along with several viral infections, such as infectious mono and others. Acute HIV can do things like this, but is rare compared with other possibilities, especially if not at obvious high risk (IV drug use, sex with gay/bi men, etc). Easy bruising could be serious. See MD ASAP, but probably not HIV. ...Read more

Could this swelling around one molar be caused by an abscessed tooth? I have a molar on the left side of the mouth where the gum is incredibly swollen and tender around it. It hurts to eat, brush or do anything around that tooth, and I'm wondering if this

Could this swelling around one molar be caused by an abscessed tooth? I have a molar on the left side of the mouth where the gum is incredibly swollen and tender around it. It hurts to eat, brush or do anything around that tooth, and I'm wondering if this

If: If it is all the way in the back it might be what is called a pericoronitis. An infection of the gum over a partially erupted wisdom tooth.
Try to brush it to clean it out, and you will have to see your dentist to either resolve the infection, or remove the wisdome tooth. ...Read more

White balls: Hello, the white balls in the back of your throat sound like tonsilliths. These are food particles that get stuck in the tonsil tissues. They harden and make your tonsils look like they are infected. Under these tonsil balls is a cavity or crevice that may be inflamed and infected causing your pain. Gargle with water after every meal. This helps to clear these white balls. Also see your doctor. ...Read more

Persistent sore throat for months, malaise, L swollen, tender tonsil, currently amoxicillin, ketoconazole, anti-histamine but no better?

Culture: Have you had a culture of your throat? It appears that you may be being treated blindly. An antifungal is rarely given for a sore throat, unless there is positive culture evidence of a fungal infection. Furthermore, amoxacillin may not destroy as much as 50% of NTHI (a bacteria very commonly causing bacterial tonsillitis.

I am experiencing enlarged or tender lymph nodes, sore throat and neck pain. Its weird because its only my right tonsil and lymph node.?

Look in the mirror and try to see the tonsil and condition of the tissues. If you yellow stuff or particles consider seeing a doctor if it persists ...Read more

The top/back of my mouth/throat is extremely sore. Tender and hurts to swallow. I don't have tonsils anymore so Could this be to do with sleep apnea?

The top/back of my mouth/throat is extremely sore. Tender and hurts to swallow. I don't have tonsils anymore so Could this be to do with sleep apnea?

Possible: It could be simply dry and irritated due to mouth breathing/apnea at night but if so should quickly resolve in the am. If it persists all day you may have a viral infection. With no tonsils it is less likely to be strep. Take motrin and use salt water gargles and see your doctor if it persists or worsens. ...Read more
