Anyone ever experienced a blister like pain in your throat or on your tonsil? Anyone have info on this before I go see a doctor?

I dont know that there is a lot that can cause blistering of the tonsils, but there are things of an infectious nature that can apply. Herpes is a possiblity but I would think rare. There are things such as auti immune symptoms and rheumatic symptoms that could get this type of presentation so see your doctor and consider asking if its a long term medical illness if you have had it for a while.July 6, 2011 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #783760sms007Member
My son had it. It’s viral so no medinicines for it and it takes abt a Week to go away. Refuah shelema!!! (Not that I’m diagnosing you….just sharing our experience)July 7, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #783761deiyezoogerMember

hope it’s not strep, refuah shelaymah!July 7, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am #783763
Are you sure its not strep or tonsilitis?July 7, 2011 2:07 am at 2:07 am #783764always hereParticipant
I was thinkin’ strep, too. refua sheleima b’karov!July 7, 2011 3:28 am at 3:28 am #783765
Thank you all for your suggestions and well wishes! I don’t think I have strep because when I do have strep I can hardy move, and now I’m feeling fine B”H. I do have a low fever though.
It’s not my throat that hurts, it’s only that one spot in my throat where I have a big blister(I see it in the mirror!).
My dr isn’t in tomorrow so I guess I’ll have to wait it out until friday. But I hope I’ll feel better by then.July 7, 2011 5:27 am at 5:27 am #783766real-briskerMember

SC -Try gargling with something.July 7, 2011 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #783769
Try gargling with something.
Something like salt.
Not something like the water from after giving your kids a bath.July 7, 2011 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #783770minyan galMember
It doesn’t sound at all normal and I would suggest that you find a walkin clinic. If you need antibiotics (or something else), the sooner you begin treatment, the better. If it is strep it is very important that you have a throat swab to find out which type of strep it is because untreated Group A strep can lead to health problems.July 7, 2011 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #783771YW Moderator-80Member
Something like salt
definitely do not do this
but gargling with saltwater is a good idea.July 7, 2011 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #783772
What’s wrong with just salt? It will definitely burn the germs out, that’s for sure.July 7, 2011 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #783773YW Moderator-80Member
similar reason why, when i have a cold in the winter i sit outside for a long time with no coat hat or gloves.
i figure the germs cant survive in freezing temperatures.July 7, 2011 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #783774
Ok, so my dr was extra nice and let me come to the office today although he wasn’t accepting patients.
Surprisingly enough, the throat culture is positive for strep. This is the third time I have strep in the past 3 months.
I also took some bloodwork to make sure there isn’t some other infection that we’re overseeing.
Thank you all for your help!July 7, 2011 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #783775basket of radishesParticipant
Sure, it could likely be strep. Get yourself to a doctor huh?July 7, 2011 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #783776
i figure the germs cant survive in freezing temperatures.
Ooh so you do agree with me. It sounded before like you didn’t.
This is the third time I have strep in the past 3 months.
Would you say that all three times that you got it were in the same week of each month?July 8, 2011 4:31 am at 4:31 am #783777kapustaParticipant
I think strep might be going around now. If its a problem, maybe look into a vitamin…?
Refuah Shelaima. Hope everything comes back good.July 8, 2011 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #783778adorableParticipant
DM- do you mean that you can get strep at a certain time each month? how would that make sense? does your body become weaker to fighting germs at certain times in the month? never thought there was a connection.July 8, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #783779
do you mean that you can get strep at a certain time each month?
I got strep and/or strep like symptoms including sore throat and mild to high fever on approximately the same week of every month for about two years. My fevers hit highs of 104 sometimes.
