bump. would like to hear from the ENT forum.
Dont mean to double post, but i also noticed I have tonsil stones. I am not getting them out right now as i may need help. I have had them before in the past as well. I am sure that this is tonsilitis.
I believe all of this, but i was wondering can the throat pain settle down with Tonsillitis?
The above posts are all good, I would add that you see your doctor for a throat culture to rule out a serious throat infection and to get on anti-biotics to kill any infection.
Agree with heidijb, this is Tonsillitis.
If the bacteria responsible for the infection is streptococcal, then it would be called streptococcal tonsillitis. Strep is not the only cause of tonsillitis. Thus, strep and tonsillitis are not necessarily the same thing.
could be a sign of bacterial infection...u should go for a throat swab c/s
isnt that the same thing as strep?
Sounds like good ol tonsillitis. Antibiotics and possible tonsillectomy are probably in your future.
