Hi i think i have tonsilitis, although the symptoms only seem to be showing on my right tonsil.

My right tonsil is enlarged and there is a white "thing" on it. I also had pain swallowing a few days back although it has stopped now. The other tonsil seems to be showing no sign on swelling up and has no whiteness on it.

Is it possible to get tonsilitis where the symptoms only really show on 1 tonsil?

  • Those things might be tonsil stones. Tonsil stones are really irritating, but you might get more of those stones. Seeing a doctor would be the best solution for your illness. You must also feed yourself with some information about tonsil stones, so you'll know what to do when you can't get any doctor around. You can read about Banish Tonsil Stones by Diane Putman.
