Mucus or? On stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, ; even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum.

White puss balls in throat?

White puss balls in throat?

Sore?: If your throat is sore and you see white exudate (pus balls) then you can gargle with salt water or half/half peroxide and mouthwash for relief. It would be best to be seen to be sure it is not strep throat. If you see white balls and are not ill, they could be tonsilliths or trapped food particles, which are not a problem. Gargling also helps remove them. A visit will help clear that up. ...Read more

My lymph nodes are the size of golf balls & very painful. I just got tested positive for mono but I just found a lot of puss of my tonsils??

Mono: It is very common for tonsils to have a purulent exudate or pus on them with mononucleosis. Your lymph nodes in your neck will be large and tender, you may have trouble swallowing. If you have trouble breathing or swallowing your own spit that is an emergency and you need to go to the ER right now. Sometimes your spleen can get large and painful, so left upper tummy pain is an emergency too. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I only have 1 tonsil. Every now & then will get a sore throat. Tonsil leaks fluid & has puss balls. Any thoughts?

Surgery?: It is highly unlikely you only have one tonsil. Most likely the other tonsil is so small, it can not be visualized. If the tonsil that you see has pus and infection, you may consider a culture and sensitivity for an appropriate antibiotic. The indication for tonsil surgery is 3-4 episodes of documented tonsillitis in a year. ...Read more

Increase fiber: Dried beans (limas, navy, chickpeas, cannellini and many others) are a very efficient way to improve a child's stool habits. Cook soft and then use in salads. Baked beans laced with molasses and brown sugar are another palatable way to get fiber into your child's diet - measure 1/2 cup and put in a "special bowl" with a small spoon.
