hi,did you had throat culture?.Chlamydia infections can be treated with azithromycin,doxycyclin or clarithromycin.Please try iodine gargles,antibiotics along with anti inflammatory drugs for treatment of tonsillitis.

Do you get pus discharge from tonsils?Any history of fever with chills?

okay I have a similar situation, but mine was oral and vaginal both unprotected stupid I know. I have tested for all stds and HIV about 13 times and out to 16 weeks. HIV specialist says there is no way and get it out of my head. but the glands in my throat have been swollen (pea sized) for about 3 months now, the back of my throat very red and tonsils seem enlarged . 4 weeks after I had white spots on my tonsils, low grade fever 99.5- 100.4 it was off and on. alittle chills no much, sore throat and cough. negitve strep and mono test . this just sucks. I odnt have anymore white spots although I use to get the for about 2-3 months off and on not severe just one or two pus pockets would pop up for a while and eventually go away. no I just have nasuea, swollen glands(is pea sized swollen????)  any recommandations would be great I have been to tons of docs, and no answer please any suggestions on what it could be or things that I could look into. thank you

hi,chronic tonsil infections and enlarged tonsils can lead to a condition called chronic cryptic tonsillitis. The tonsils contain many small pockets and infoldings called crypts, which can trap small food particles and other debris.

Relax,if tonsils are not congested and you are not experiencing fever,all is fine.

Bye and take care!
