Allergies

Red bumps on tonsils

06/24/2008

Question:

I`ve had a constant sore throat for over three weeks now which is accompanied by red dots clustered around my tonsils. I haven`t had a fever or any other symtoms except for a complete lack of energy. My doctor said the pain is most likely due to post-nasal drip and gave me nasal spray. However, it hasn`t helped. Is it really just allergies? Please help!

Answer:

Your symptoms could be associated with many medical problems. If they are persisting this long, you should consult your doctor again. If he/she is unable to help, ask for a consult especially if your condition is thought to be allergy-related.
