I have had chronic strep throat since I was little. I even have one tonsil that is constantly swollen and has been for the past 5 years (we call it my bad tonsil). Anyway, my good tonsil is all swelled up and is completely white with blisters.  My other symptoms include ear pain, headache, body aches, and soar throat on the blistered side. I have had strep a million times and this doesn't feel like strep. The throat pain isn't bad enough for me to think its strep. I refuse the throat culture so I just want to know what this could be other than strep?
