Doctor can evaluate: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or mild flu (antibiotics are not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away in a day or two (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain, for 1-2 days. ...Read more
I have had swollen/slight pus-sy tonsils and clear blisters on back of throat for years. Causes nil symptoms but bad breath. What could this be?
I've been having cold symptoms for the past two weeks, my throat has been hurting badly. Swollen tonsils with white spots, no fever.
Long enough time: It's been long enough to suffer from this and a doctor's visit or urgent care is a good idea to get it over faster. Antibiotics should not be used unnecessarily but the tonsils sound infected. See someone ASAP and get treatment. Fever may not always be the only sign to look for. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Yes: Tonsillectomy is a very painful operation but the incidence of complications (hemorrhage) is about 1% if the surgery is performed by a competent ENT surgeon. However, if you drink a lot of fluids and take appropriate narcotic medication you will be fine in 10 to 14 days. And you will never have another episode of tonsillitis for the rest of your life. ...Read more
