About a month ago, I woke up and my left tonsil was swollen and red and hurt a little bit when I would swallow hard, otherwise there was no pain. The next day, I noticed white stuff on a few areas of the tonsil. Over the next couple of days it kept getting worse, and even my right tonsil was covered in the white stuff, so I went to the doctor. She did a strep test which came back negative. I guess she didn't know what it was and she gave me an antibiotic. The antibiotic took care of it.
Yesterday, I noticed my left tonsil was swollen again and now the white spots are reforming. Once again, there is no pain. I have a history of tonsil stones so I know that this is something different.
I am going back to the doctor in 6 days, but I'm just wondering if anyone knows what could be going on.
Use a Water Pik to clean your tonsils. I had chronic tonsillitis until I graduated from college. Tired of the tonsillitis I went to an ENT specialist. He looked at my tonsils and told be to invest in a Water Pik and clean your tonsils daily. That was 35 years ago - now I only clean my tonsils if white spots or stones return
