Thanks for posting on HCM
What is going on with you is that you are having oropharyngitis ( infection of your buccal mucosa including tonsils, uvula
and throat/pharynx) due to either a viral, bacterial or possibly fungal infection
. Generally when tonsils are swollen, it is often bacteria which could be due to germs such as strep, staph etc. Since swallowing is painful or not possible you might require injections of antibiotics (penicillin/ aminopenicillin
) and antiinflammatory (diclofenac
, ketoprofene etc) before they are relayed with oral medications when possible. If swallowing is no issue, then oral medications will suffice. Oral mouth wash containing antibiotics could also be indicated to improve healing.
But before the course of antibiotics, your doctor will need to first of all examine your mouth properly to determine the type of infection (rule out oral candidiasis
Hope this helps
