My throat has been swollen and I have kissing tonsils with white spots. It isn't very painful, but the pain comes & goes. Have had this 6 months?

Check with an ENT: Generally those types of symptoms usually resolve themselves by that point. I'd suggest being evaluated by an ENT - a physician who specializes in disorders of the ears, nose & throat - as they might want to take a biopsy to rule out anything else that might be going on.

Go ahead: If fluid behind her ear drums, and frequent middle ear infections, then ventilation tubes are warranted. As for adenoid removal, that would help some, initially, but if the reason for the chronic inflammation , as allergies, isn't sought and checked, the adenoid will regrow and ? Lead to Eustachian Tube dysfunction again. Tonsils, even if kissing, aren't removed unless severely inflamed/malignant ...Read more

Possible: Whenever we share body fluids there's always a chance of an infection being passed along. The ear pain is probably referred pain from the throat. Gargle warm salt water, eat soft cool foods and if not better in 5 days see MD - sooner if significant fever/vomiting/rash. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pharyngitis ...Read more
