Is It Okay To Kiss My Boyfriend Who Is Healing From Tonsillitis
Probaqbly not: A healing tonsillitis may be the result of infectious mononucleosis or other viral infection. You have just described the most common route for transmission of an upper respiratory infection that I know of. My advice, if it is not to late, no kissing until your boyfriend is completely recovered. ...Read more
Infection, not cance: Oral, throat infections will spread if you swap spit, not a peck on the cheek (but don't do that either, until infection is treated. ...Read more
Hey two questions, I have Tonsillitis and my boyfriend wants to know that if I kiss him will he get it? He has the flu shot.
Tonsillitis: Tonsillitis is an infection. Infections are generally considered contagious. When you have an infection, you should avoid kissing as you could share your infection with your kidding partner. Bottom line is that you can certainly kiss with tonsillitis, but you risk spreading your infection around. Even coughing or sneezing is enough to spread some infections. Wash your hands often and get well. ...Read more
Probably not: Since you don't know what is causing her tonsillitis (viral, bacterial), it is best to wait until after she has recovered from it. You may get away without catching the infection but why take the risk- she can live without your kissing (unless she is Snow White)for a few more days? ...Read more
Can tonsilitis be spread through kissing and once it os spread will the infected person get the sickness straight away or could be few years later?
Yes: Infectious diseases are routinely spread in oral mucous. The incubation period until a susceptible person becomes infected depends on the illness, but is generally no more than a few days. I am not aware of any illness that waits months or years until it emerges. However, some conditions like oral HPV may infect early without symptoms but show up as pre-cancerous lesions in the throat years later. ...Read more
Either way: Innoculation (giving a germ from one person to another) can occur with what you think is a minor exposure if the person ill has a high level of germs. So if they are really sick, especially in fever periods or while they have a lot of gunk on their tonsils in this case, they could infect you with just a small kiss. Obviously, the longer and bigger the exposure, the greater the risk of transmission. ...Read more
No: No you can't.Get a more detailed answer ›
Needs clarification: Infected tonsils and lymphoma are two completely different things (lymphoma is a type of cancer). Having said that, yes if one has an acute tonsillitis, they can spread it to someone if they are playing tonsil hockey (kissing) with someone else....[unfortunately that will be the only hockey we will see for awhile due to the nhl lockout : (]. ...Read more
I have tonsil cancer and I think my tonsil is infected and my friend got tonsillitis from me kissing him is did he just get my infection?
Antibiotics: I am a huge fan of an antibiotic called clindamycin. Tonsillitis usually involves mouth organisms either primarily or secondarily. Clindamycin is very effective against mouth bacteria whereas a lot of other antibiotics aren't. I'm aggressive with tonsil infections treating with antibiotics even with a viral cause. This is because bacterial superinfection occurs as the virus weakens the tonsil. ...Read more
Depends: Choice of therapy depends upon the etiology of the tonsillar inflammation. Often due to grp a beta-hemolytic strep, but can be due to staph aureus or other bacterial pathogens. If due to infectious mononucleosis or similar viral infections there is no treatment. Many doctors will begin with a physical exam. It it looks bacterial then an oral cephalosporin, quinolone, amoxicillin/clavulanate. ...Read more
