My throat has been bothering me for the past 5 days now. I noticed it begun hurting after taking an rather large Tylenol pill for a headache that went down the wrong way, and I ended up somewhat chocking on it, but that was about a week ago. This morning I woke up with a "eggy" smell/taste in my mouth and took a look down my throat just to notice that my right side tonsil looked odd. It looks as if my tonsil is folded in half and I have cottage cheese stuck between the fold. The pain is very mild, just feels as if I'm about to come down with a cold or something. Also, if this helps any, I have been taking iron supplements due to having iron deficiency anemia.
Any idea on what this may be? Thank You!
If you are noticing a discharge on your tonsil, then you should see your doctor for a throat culture. This could be a tonsilitis, strep throat, or even thrush. But you should get it checked out before it gets worse. IN the meantime, you could try gargling with warm salt water. Good luck.
