I have infected nose piercing, now a swollen right tonsil and really sore throat and feel exhausted, should I be worried about blood poisoning?
Mixed . think you may have a upper respiratory infection in addition to a infected nostril. Suggest see a primary care doc and get a rapid strep test and monospot done.
