Do You Think I Am Getting Mono If I Have A Bad Sore Throat And Big Tonsils
Had mono 3 times & sore throats w/ it always. then tonsils removed 6months ago, feeling like I'm getting mono again now but no sore throat? not mono?
Not mono.: Hard to explain in limited space, but mono does not cause a pattern like this. Lab markers of mono persist for life and are often misunderstood. Unless you have seen an infectious disease specialist, I suspect that your prior episodes were NOT mono and that you do not have mono now. Chronic active EBV infection is a rare disorder. ...Read more

Very large white spot on tonsil. Strep and flu tests negative. Had mono 15 years ago. Severe sore throat, body aches, chills. Why spot if not strep?
Calcification: i often see residual white spot like a tiny calcification but usually not significant, try salt water gargles about 3 x/day , warm to hot tap water [not too hot where it burns] 1 oz with 1/8 teaspoon of salt , this may 'sandpaper' it off , if sore throat , could be virus unrelated, if all those symptoms , may have the flu , get tested [nasal swab rapid test] but can't treat if flu after 3 days ...Read more
