 Oxygen Pharynx Pus Throat Drainage Pain Breathing difficulty

Hard to breathe?


"Hard to breathe" usually means it is an emergency, meaning that one should call 911 for an ambulance (and not try to drive to the ER). If the back of the throat is so swollen that it is "hard to breathe", the swelling can worsen so that it becomes "impossible to breathe"... and we all know what happens after that. The ambulance can provide oxygen and monitoring on the way to the E.R.

Highly recommended


It is unusual for a pus pocket along with the symptom of sore throat to persist for a month. Depending on the details of your medical and social history, you may have a bacterial infection that may be contagious (eg. Strept throat, Herpes, and others) . Cultures can be taken to confirm the diagnosis. These infections are treatable, and will avoid the issue about getting a biopsy.

Mono symptoms are much more pronounced than what you are describing. Usually the tonsils are swollen and tender and look awful. You can always ask your doctor to get a mono blood titer or a blood test on you to diagnose mono.

Decreased feeding


The back of the throat and tonsils require the mechanical action of feeding to help strip mucous and old skin accumulation off these surfaces.Limited oral intake and or lack of roughage in the diet can lead to increased accumulations on these structures. Try to stay hydrated and keep up with your energy needs and don't dwell over the appearance of your tonsils.It may be weeks before they improve.
