Doctor insights on:
My throat (tonsils and uvalva) have been red for a few weeks now with no other symptoms. Should i be worried?
My 2 year old's uvula is stuck to the side of her throat/tonsil. She doesn't seem to be in any pain and has no other symptoms. Thoughts?
For the past 2 years I have these white looking bumps in the back of my throat. Tonsils have been out for 1 year yet still having throat pain.
Pus sacks in the back of my throat (tonsils were removed when I was 4) negative strep test. What could this be, since it can't be tonsilitis or strep.
I have stinging/burning sensation on my right throat/tonsil. A bump of somesort on the right side of my throat just behind tonsil. Sharp ache on right?
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
Treated for tonsillitis but whole throat/tonsils swollen & red. Glands in neck swollen too after 20 days. Should it get worse to get better?
Culture: If the tonsils are red and swollen for 20 days and an antibiotic has been unsuccessful I would strongly recommend a culture of the throat to rule out a viral infection or a specific bacterial infection. Finally, infectious mono needs to be ruled out. No it should not get worse before it gets better. You need a specific diagnosis. See an ENT doctor. ...Read more
