Can you have tonsillitis with no tonsils. Throat not sore, back of throat roof of mouth and tonsils have yellow look to them. Red streaks on tonsils.

Can you have tonsillitis with no tonsils. Throat not sore, back of throat roof of mouth and tonsils have yellow look to them. Red streaks on tonsils.

Yes and no: Not all of your tonsils are removed when a tonsilectomy is done. The ones that remain can get inflamed. There is also a fair amount of lymphoid tissue within the oropharynx and throat that can become swollen and irritated when they are exposed to an allergen or pathogen. If your throat is not sore try gargling with warm salt water 3 times a day to see if you can reduce the redness. ...Read more

What looks like a Canker sore on soft palate. Red spots in back of throat/roof of mouth. Mouth is also yellow in color instead of pink. What is this?

That's not an easy ?: Sorry about that, but I'm certain a doctor will need to examine you to answer that question. What other physical symptoms do you have? How long has this been an issue?

Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?

No: Acute pharyngitis is usually a viral infection. I wonder if your PMD put you on an antibiotic. If so, the white tongue could be a fungal infection. Red spots on the palate still could be the viral infection that persists. Do not be concerned, but if the spots persist see either your doctor or a specialist in oral medicine. ...Read more

Sores from kissing: hello ! Mono has an incubation period of 4-6 weeks so you kiss and get sick 1 and a half months later. This is unlikely to be MONO unless you kissed someone 6 weeks ago. You'd be sicker too. These are probably common herpes oral lesions. Dont kiss or have oral sex and they are VERY infectious for the next 10 days. thanks ...Read more
