Last week I had a very mild cold. Lots of vitamin c wiped it out. Now, I have a swollen tonsil and sore throat on the right side of my throat only. There does not appear to be any spots or yellow ooze. The throat is very swollen, as well as the area under my jaw. It is painful to swallow and speak, as well as open my mouth the whole way. I also have noticed a lot of saliva (could be from not swallowing due to pain).
Should I seek a doctor's opinion or attack this with vitamins, too?
