User : Hey
Doctor : hi
how can i help you?
User : I have swollen tonsils and lately i have been having a horrible fever.
User : i havnt seen a doctor yet
User : and i noticed tonigght that there are 3 swollen lumps in my neck that are hard
User : im only 17 and im worried something is wrong
User : can you please tell me anything so i can relax?
do you have fever, swallowing difficulty, pain with swallowing?
i will help you with this
User : yes i have all 3 of those
first you need to go to a doctor who will examine your tonsils and tell you what kind of infection is there
you will need prescription for antibiotics to treat that
and may be culture sensitivity if there is pus draining out
the lumps in your neck
are probably the swollen and inflammed lymph nodes that are draining the tonsils
they will be normal with antibiotics
User : ive always had one lump on the lower part of my neck but its gotten stiff and now there are 2 more
Doctor : ok
do you have tonsil problem chronically?
or this is the first episode?
User : its happened twice before
User : this time it feels alot worse though
in chronic problems, the lymph nodes are affected and can present as what you are having now
so don not worry
get an examination done
things will be better
also do warm salt water gargling two-three times a day
this will relieve pain and help in healing faster
User : thank you for your time!
Doctor : thanks for consulting healthcare magic
bye for now
