I am 38 yrs old. I have been having tonsilitis off and on for 20 years and acne too. I am quite convinced that my left inflamed tonsil with tonsil stones causes acne on the left side of my face usually. I was wondering if any body else has the same problem. I also have herpes simplex Type 1( cold sores) from time to time.
I would appreciate responses.
whenever I have inflamed tonsil I see more acne.My theory is that the pus formed in the tonsils probably gets into the blood flow and manifests in form of pimples. I am sure it is one of the reasons I cant seem to get rid of the acne with any topical remedies. I am thinking of getting my tonsils removed.
Thanks for your interest,
I am not sure if these symptoms you are having are connected. I happen to have the same exact symtoms though. I am 30, have had acne since teenage years, have a left inflammed tonsil, and get strep 5 times or more a year. The only difference is my acne is not limited to the left side of my face. I am thinking of getting my tonsils removed. Do you think this could help?
I am pretty sure now.I plan to get my tonsils removed as soon as possible.There is nothing to lose, except bad-breath. Please let me know what you plan to do. May be we find more people with the same issues.
I had a consultation this morning in Beverly Hills. I am going to have my tonsils removed in a couple weeks. I am NOT looking forward to the recovery process, but it will be nice to have all these problems go away.
Please make sure that your docture will just remove the tonsils and not the uvula. I have heard that sometimes they remove it accidently.I hope you have a short recovery and I hope the acne will go away too. Don't forget to let us posted.
