Pus pocket and throat pain for 5 days, viral or strep?

Need eval.

Pharynx
For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have Strep Throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider Tylenol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: Mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with Aloe Vera juice twice a day.

Hurting all in the face, nose congestion, have pus pockets in throat, spitting up phlem, and have a headache. Could this be a major sinus infection?

Bacterial infection

Viral_uri
Sinus infection and the seasonal flu go hand in hand. Usually, flu goes away within a week, but sinus congestion and a feeling of sickness can linger and worsen due to bacterial infection. Res. see your PCP for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Tonsils swollen/pus pockets/VERY sore throat. Lab results said "moderate beta-hemolytic streptocci, not group A isolated." Is that not typical strep?

Yes and no

Neck-throat
By typical, I guess that you mean the kind of strep that should be treated with an antibiotic. The reason for antibiotic treatment of group A strep is to prevent you from getting rheumatic fever as a consequence of the strep infection. With non group A strep, you have have to worry about rheumatic fever and so antibiotics aren't required for prevention but you should talk to your doctor about it.

my throat have a pus pocket on it hurts really bad hard to breath should i go to the doctor ?

Hard to breathe?

Ambulance
"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.

I have had a small pus pocket on my left tonsil for 1 month. The only symptom I have is a sore throat. Do I need to make a dr apppointment?

Highly recommended

Neck-throat
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.

White spots on my uvula & tonsils. Left side looks a bit swollen. Negative for strep. No sore throat. ENT said tonsillitis & saw a "pus pocket" on one side. I had a bad cold for 5 wks. Could be mono?

Maybe

Neck-throat
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.

Crazy

Crazy glue contains cyanoacrylate. If it becomes vaporized it can irritate the membranes of the eyes, nose, and throat but then becomes inert. After repeated use a person can become sensitized. There is a good possibility that they are two separate issues.
