Afternoon, I want to ask, I consider the age of 18 years. I have complaints such as, swallowing hurts, my breath smells bad lately, and there are white and white swollen tonsils and a red color, bitter taste on my tongue, I don’t eat well, yesterday I got dizzy. Indeed, lately I have been eating a lot of snacks, fried foods, eating spicy food and drinking cold water. Do you think the tonsils or not? I am afraid of getting diphtheria, but I have injected the DPT vaccine but only once

1 Answer:

Good afternoon Anggiew, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions you mention can occur due to several possibilities, including:

Pharyngitis or laryngitis Peritonsillar abscess or pus buildup near the tonsil structures in the mouth Acute or chronic tonsillitis or tonsillitis Diphtheria

So to find out what really happened to you, you should immediately have your condition checked by an ENT doctor. By seeing it directly will reduce the possibility of misunderstanding and your doctor can perform supporting tests as well such as blood tests to further confirm the suspicion. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.

Meanwhile we recommend that you not eat greasy and fatty foods first, avoid foods and drinks that are too hot or cold, brush your teeth regularly at least 2x a day, and use mouthwash or dental floss. To relieve pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the instructions for use listed. Get well soon.

That's all, hope it helps.
