yesterday morning I woke up and my left tonsil was hurting and it hurt to swallow.. I looked at my throat with a flash light and my left tonsil got white crap on it, looks kinda redish too.. I stuck a q-tip on it and think blood or something came on it.. I've had really bad taste in my mouth.. and feels like my saliva is thick or.. like mucus or something I keep having to swallow or spit and stuff..

Someone said it could be strep throat.. Wondering if thats something serious .. or maybe it could be something else.. it doesnt hurt a whole lot swallowing.. I mean.. its just a little irritating pain,.. nothing I cant handle so far.

I dont think I got a fever, had a little headache last night but not anymore..

What should I do? .. I dont want to see a doctor.. someone suggested honey in hot water or something..

Help!!

The tonsils are part of the body's normal defense mechanism. Tonsils lie at the strategic spot to intercept bacteria which might invade the body through the mouth or nose. Tonsils contain a lot of disease-fighting tissue.

There are 2 types of bacteria, primarily, to worry about. "Strep" stands for Streptococcus. "Staph" stands for Staphylococcus. Both types of bacteria can be dangerous IF they gain a strong foothold in the body. Some people develop a chronic low-grade staph infection in their tonsils. Then if their body becomes weakened for some reason the staph can become more prominent. This is what it sounds like you have. I think that a doctor would probably give you some kind of an antibiotic that can control either staph or strep. That would probably knock it out in about 5 days.

You can try gargling salt water several times a day. Make the salt water by running hot water out of the faucet - but not hot enough to burn you - stir in a tablespoon full of table salt. Gargle this several times a day. Don't swallow it. This may take care of your infection. If it doesn't get better or starts to get worse, you may need to consult a physician.

i know doctors n hospitals suck but i think u need to go to one cuz if its an infection i dont think salt makes it better. dont do antibiotics by yourself or u could make it worse.. n i think its easier when u treat it right away dunno...

let us know how it goes

Well my thing has turned into something really weird... I still got white streaks on my tonsils.. but now my left tonsil feels like there is a chunk falling out.. feels like there is a giant lump in my throat and its all loose .. so I feel it move around when I swallow.. the taste in my mouth is worse.. and this chunk has black stuff on it.. looks like its the tonsil itself.. but .. shouldnt fall appart like that.. right???

wtf is going on! .. its irritating trying to swallow...

Marcus,

I'm really concerned! Isn't there some way you can see a Dr.?
You probably need to get some antibiotic.
