I got diagnosed with cyrptic tonsills after seeing white spots on my tonsills now there gone I've been taking clindmaycin for 3 days what doesthatmean?
Tonsil stones: Masses of keratin (the internet is wrong about their composition) accumulate in some folks' tonsils. Most of us hack the smelly little "tonsilloliths" up without realizing it, but they can scrape around and invite bacteria into the injuries. If this is a nuisance, an ENT doctor with a laser can resurface them so they stop, or you can learn to remove them yourself (be careful). ...Read more

White lesions associated with "dipping" is the first sign of cellular change which means cells are in a dysplastic stage meaning possible beginning stages of cancer.

You may be low on BP: Or you're having some sort of headache aura but since I don't hear you saying anything about severe headaches I'll stick with the low BP. 1st, make sure you're TANKING UP ON FLUIDS. I suspect you're low cuz your Crohn's is causing a lot of diarrhea & loss of fluids. You need to replace at least as much water daily as you're losing. Next, bolster your salt intake to 2x what you normally take. ...Read more
I have glaucoma and I've recently been experiencing seeing little white spots after a hard cough. They last about 5 seconds, is glaucoma the reason?
Glaucoma usually causes painless vision loss over a long period of time & the visual field ceases to exist (like trying to see your hand from the back of your head).
You're describing 'flashes' due to irritation or excitement of your retina (the film in the camera of your eyes).
Although very common, some people have a risk of retinal detachment. See an ophthalmologist to have a dilated exam. ...Read more

I have a sunburn and I am using aloe Vera and I'm peeling and seeing white spots. Should I be worried? Is there anything I can use to make not visible
Dead skin cells: Unfortunately, a skin burn is 'bad news' for the skin- it's damaged and now sloughing off... so you will see the dead skin particles coming off. There's not much you can do about that... aloe might 'mask' some of the dry flakiness by adding moisture. The real issue is prevention of sunburn in the first place. It can damage skin longer term and cause cancer with repeated sunburns. See derma if Q's. ...Read more

My tonsils are swollen and my uvula is connected to my right tonsil. It's been like this for a month now. I see white spots in the back. What is wrong?
Maybe nothing or. ..: Large tonsils, in & of themselves, aren't necessarily abnormal. Nor are white spots on back of throat (might be food!). If you're feeling sick eg sore throat, fever, swollen glands, etc, that's something different (retropharyngeal abscess?).
