Doctor can recheck: Sore throat or tonsillitis symptoms usually are evaluated with a strep test in addition to an exam. If there are strep germs, antibiotics such as Amoxil (amoxicillin) or Zithromax are needed. Sometimes tonsils get whitish mucousy stuff on them. Persistent problems may mean a tonsillar abscess (needs a recheck), or maybe MONOnucleosis. One can catch mono coincidentally when one has strep throat. ...Read more

My tonsillitis is on the right side, and while it is curing, it suddenly transferred to the left side whenever I swallow anything. Is that possible?

My tonsillitis is on the right side, and while it is curing, it suddenly transferred to the left side whenever I swallow anything. Is that possible?

Need more info: Do you mean that the pain you were experiencing on your right side has moved to your left? Are you taking antibiotics for your tonsillitis? If so, it is unlikely that it should spread from one side to another. The best way for you to know is to have it examined, and your doctor can determine appropriate treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more

I've had a really bad cough for 3+ weeks now then couldn't swallow went to docs diagnosed tonsillitis they gave me penicillin but now its worse.?

Alot worse?: If worse it needs to be checked. If you develop trouble swallowing to the point of drooling, painful opening of mouth, tender lymph node in neck opposite tonsil, you could have a peritonsillar abscess. If it's the cough that's worse, so long as you're not coughing up green or yellow, it's likely viral and will pass. If coughing until vomiting, may have pertussis, and need different antibiotic. ...Read more

The top/back of my mouth hurts. Mainly when I swallow. It feels like it did when I had tonsillitis but I had a tonsillectomy 2 years ago. Any advice?

The top/back of my mouth hurts. Mainly when I swallow. It feels like it did when I had tonsillitis but I had a tonsillectomy 2 years ago. Any advice?

Pharyngitis: Throat infections are quite common-even if you did have a tonsillectomy. Different viruses and bacteria can cause these symptoms. A throat culture or rapid test can help find out the cause. Once that is done, the treatment can be targeted towards that. In the meantime, hot lemon tea with honey, throat lozenges, even tylenol (acetaminophen) would be helpful. See a doc for the diagnostic test and targeted treatment ...Read more

Safe: If you are able to push the pus out that is OK and there is not a danger in swallowing it. However, if you are still feeling ill after 5 days of antibiotics I would see an ENT to have him/her drain the abscess ASAP. ...Read more

Oral Pain: Good day;
I'm confused, usually gum pain is found directly around the teeth not toward the roof of the mouth. Possibly the discomfort is so bad as to travel toward the roof of the mouth! You may be coming down with a sore throat. A perfect time to arrange a visit with a medically oriented dentist. Good luck ...Read more

Virus?: Tonsillitis is inflammation/infection of tonsils. We also refer to it as pharyngitis. Most often, it's caused by a virus, which will not respond to antibiotics. In other words, it'll take same amount of time to get over it regardless of whether you take antibiotics or not. Only strep will respond to antibiotics check out centor criteria (http://goo.
