Re: White spots/things on tonsils and back of throat

tonsillitis. ive had sore throat for about 5 weeks (cant get rid of it this time ) that turned into tonsillitis - my right tonisl is enlarged and i have some white spots on the left one and pain while eating or swallowing.

it's eaisly treatable with antibiotics (im going to see my GP on tuesday). before u go to the doctor u might wanna try gargling with salty water everycouple of hrs. keep drinking all the time - water, warm tea, orange jucie.
pain makes me stronger

Re: White spots/things on tonsils and back of throat

Hello. I hope you guy are feeling better. I've never had problems with my tonsils when I was young and Basically never got sick. I am still very healthy (I never get sick with the flu and other stuff). I get colds once ina while and have allergies which do not help. Ever since I was 13 years old I started getting tonsillitis/sore throats alot.last year (2005) wasn't a bad year for me. I only had sore throat/tonsillitis 3 times in the whole year.. This year like (2003,2004) I have all the time. the difference with this year (2006) and the other two years (2003,2004), I had tonsillitis at least 8 times in the whole year. I've been sick with it at least 5 or six times since september 06 to now. The weird thing is I never feel sick when I get tonsilltis. I actually feel normal except for the throat. Like now, My throat hurts, my neck glands are sore, My tonsils are alittle swollen and inflamed. It is really annoying. Some of my friends didn't even believe I was "sick". They said you don't have tonsillitis and I said how about you are not my doctor and stop asking me to open my mouth so you can see my tonsils.

That is strep throat. You need to get to your doctor right away for a dose of anitbiotics.
