You : You may be dealing with seasonal allergies with post nasal drip. When you are exposed to allergens you get an increase in mucous production. This mucous can drip from your nose down into your throat. This causes throat irritation, pain, redness, and even itching. Start by taking a daily anti-histamine like Claritin or alavert. Also Benadryl can be taken, in addition Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. If you do not notice an improvement after a week or two, see your doctor. Take care. ...Read more
Hello. I have a question. So I am a bit worried. About 3 weeks ago I woke up with a sore throat. The next day it was gone so I checked my throat and my right side was extremely swollen with puss pockets. (I dont have tonsils)
Well I started antibiotics
Never do...: You should never start antibiotics on your own if this is what you mean. Many times even when you have "pus" or what seems to be pus this could be related to a viral infection and antibiotics will just create resistance since they are made for bacteria not virus. Even without tonsils you may get infections. f you are feeling sick see your doctor for final diagnosis and treatment as needed. ...Read more

Nasal Pain: It is very difficult to diagnose your problem without examining your nose.

I would suggest following up with a board certified otolaryngologist (ENT) to further evaluate your complaints. Good luck! ...Read more
