I have some trouble with my tonsils. I have tonsil stones frequently with snoring. For the past two months, I have a mild sore or scratchy throat. My left tonsil is swollen with pain. Sometimes the pain reaches my ear. My doctor did a swab test to check for infection but it came back clean. Can I have these symptoms due to allergies? I never had allergies before except asthma during childhood. I do not have any other symptoms.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. Tonsil enlargement can occur due to infection or as a part of some other disease. If your swab test is negative, we need to do other investigations to check for other possibilities. In the meantime, you can take tablets as given below.
You need to do CBC (complete blood count), ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), peripheral smear, CT (computed tomography) neck, and chest X-ray.Probable diagnosis:
You need further evaluation to know the cause of tonsillar enlargement.Treatment plan:
You can take tablet Cefuroxime 500 mg one tablet twice daily for a week after food. You can take tablet Aceclofenac with Serratiopeptidase one tablet twice daily after food for five days. You can do Betadine gargling thrice daily.Regarding follow up:
Have a follow-up with your investigations.
