Question: Hello Dr, I have tried antibiotics and my tonsils sort of are a bit smaller but it's been a few months and they are still irregular and enlarged with many bumps and lumps . There is a purple scarring or something behind the tonsils and also I have an ulcer (still) at the back of a throat - there is no pain whatsoever. Shall I be very concerned?

Brief Answer:
Not to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your direct query. As long as you have no pain in the tonsils ,don't worry. Lumps and bumps are the normal structure of tonsils. Ulcer can be treated with multivitamin supplement containing zinc. Purple patch can be a venous patch. Not to worry. These are normal anatomical variation. Good tonsil size has reduced. Continue hot saline gargling twice daily. Avoid oily and cold items. Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query. I viewed your images. Your tonsils looks healthy enough. Bumps are normal crypts if tonsils. Purple patch as you said is venous congestion. Continue hot saline gargling to reduce the congestion even more. Other wise everything looks normal to me. Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.

Hi Dr. XXXXXX,

I have pain and tightness in the back of my leg in the thigh area and along the outer part of my lower leg ...also additional swelling on the front on my leg just below the knee about an inch below the knee ....I walked 6 kilometers yesterday and the day before and felt tender but today I was in the car driving for 3 hours straight without stopping and when I got out of the car I could not walk very well and I did stretch out but I cannot walk very well tonight.
