Question: i have two bumps--one 8mm and the other 3mm in circumference on the pharyngopalatine arch. Bumps are right next to each other. gargling with salt water, water and oregano oil, chlotrimazole 10 mg, none of which helped. It started when i used Thieves and then a Z-pac and then clindomycin.
Any ideas ?

I am a dentist.
This is beyond hexidine mouthwash and Vit C. I take vitamins and nutrients regularly. I am in shape and healthy.
How do I send you a picture? Can you send me an email to send it to?Why should you say tonsillitis when they were removed as a child ??????

From the symptoms it appears to be a pharyngeal arch infection and the site suggests tonsillitis. It can be some residual tonsillar tissue or any other component of the waldeyers ring involved.
