Suffering a viral cold infection, but one tonsil is inflamed. It hurts to swallow salvia, open mouth and one of my ears feel blocked. Is this normal?

Peritonsillar absces: If the inflammation and swelling seems to be one sided and it hurts to open your mouth and swallow, you might very well have a peri-tonsillar abscess.

Go now to your nearest Emergency Department and let them check. ...Read more

I got a customers salvia or spit on my arm then use anti bacterial stuff on my arm am I at risk for herpes from the spit?

Infectious Diseases: These questions that want to nit pick the to the very limit of medicine are hard to answer. The answer is yes, of course. But, the likelihood is so very rare that I as a physician want to ask why you are wasting even one moment worrying. The most important message I can give to all on this site about herpes is that every adult needs to have the herpes blood tests to see if they have herpes or not. ...Read more
