White Spots On The Tonsils Have Been 3 Days Accompanied By Fever Is Dangerous?
My doctor wants to ask, I am a woman aged 27 years, 3 days ago I had a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius, pain when swallowing. Then I went to see a general practitioner when I saw my throat, in the left tonsil there was a white spot about 0.5 cm, after being prescribed antibiotics, sprue drops and several other drugs were now no longer painful when swallowing. But I see that the white patches are still there. Is it dangerous? Do I have to go to sp. ENT immediately or spend the medicine from the previous doctor? thank you
Hello Fatma! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
White patches on the tonsils can occur due to viral, bacterial, or fungal infections. You should follow the advice of the doctor who has examined you. Take out antibiotics and other drugs that you receive regularly. Try to take antibiotics at the same time every day, according to doctor's advice. If the medicine is gone but the spots still remain, you should see the doctor who gave you the medicine again. Your doctor will compare the results of your examination before and after treatment. If necessary, the doctor will refer you to an ENT specialist. For the time being, it seems you don't need it. Expand to rest and drink water. The water you drink should be warm so that your throat feels more comfortable. Gargling with salt water for 10-15 seconds may help. Stay away from cigarette smoke and other burning fumes. Come to the nearest hospital emergency room if you experience shortness of breath or such as suffocation and difficulty breathing.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
