I have a tonsil infection and I get that here and there. And also im very skinny u can say iam ectomorph. You think caz my tonsil im skiiny?
Tonsil: If the tonsils are large some people have problems with swallowing. If not it wouldn't be a source for being thin
Depends: If the infection is viral, your immune system will effect a cure. If it is bacterial (hopefully a culture will be taken) an appropriate antibiotic depending on culture should get rid of your tonsil infection.
Tonsil infection? I can squeeze these white puss balls out of my tonsil. Some are size of a pea. I get bit light headed when I squeeze them out also.
Body response: Your body's response to injury is scar tissue/fibrosis but this does improve over time. People who get infections all the time actually develop crypts in their tonsils that can contribute to bad breath and more infections but otherwise this is not dangerous. Try to keep them rinsed and prevent infections. Have you heard of sinus rinse (Neil Med or Ayr). They help to prevent recurrent infection
Not necessarily: If often and repeadedly infected then yes.
Yes, BUT you might: Infect the person you are kissing.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: I will mention at least one indication for tonsillectomy, where the typical symptoms of severe throat are not commonly present. That condition called hypertrophy (massive enlargement) of the tonsillar tissue is present and may lead to a sleep disorder. The enlargement may be due to asymptomatic bacterial infection where the bacteria cause lymphocyte division in the absence of pain.
Need more info!: This question is too vague. More details are needed.

Headache: Pretty rare occurrence. Most tonsils infections remain localized in the tonsil, causing considerable pain on swallowing or drinking. The redness and swelling of the throat is obvious with just a mirror and a light. If it spreads, the pain will become more generalized along with systemic fever and sweats. Were it to get into the brain, headache would be the first symptom, and neck stiffness.
First time tonsil infection then my left tonsil got fibrotic. How in first time. What to do I am really worried can it cause bacteremia and all?
Tonsilicious!!!: Must have been a pretty bad infection if your tonsil scarred like that. Has your doctor talked to you about this? Scars may cause little crypts that catch food and debris and can cause irritation and bad breath.So gargle 5X/day. As for bacteremia: Guess what? Every time you brush your teeth some bacteria leak into your blood--but if you are healthy, your body cells catch them and have them for dinnerSee 1 more doctor answer

Contributing factors can be seasonal allergies with post nasal drip, frequent sinus infections, poor oral hygiene, and tobacco use. Some symptoms from this is general tiredness/headaches, digestive issues. You may want to have your doctor refer you to ENT if symptoms are persistent.See 1 more doctor answer
Have this white drainage along with white puss balls that comes out of my tonsil. Infection? Tonsil stones? Been like this for awhile now.
Tonsil stones: What you are describing sounds like tonsil stones, also called tonsilloliths. Some argue that these are food debris, others argue infection. I think they are a low grade infection, which is why there is pain, sore throat and why those balls smell so horrendously awful. Can be treated with gargling, water pick, manual disimpaction (not recommended) or even tonsillectomy. Discuss with your doctor.
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
