Hi Gupta,



Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,

This can be inflammation of the tonsil, sometimes there will be unequal enlargement of the tonsil. If you are not having much problem with it you can just forget it, if you are having fever associated then get the blood tests done to rule out other medical causes. Drink plenty of warm water, stop smoking and for few days do gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash.

Take care



Regards

Dr. Naveen Kumar

Is this tonsillitis ? It seems that I have some sort of a growth on my left tonsil. Yesterday it began to bulge but I ignored it, and now it seems to me that it s getting worse. It s strange to me that only one tonsil is affected. Do you know maybe what it is? Here is the picture. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/819/dsc04000d.jpg/

Good afternoon I went to the doctors last week with pain in my neck, head and glands - I was told I had tonsillitis but my doctor asked me if my tonsils were shrunken? What does this mean? My throat is red and very painful to swallow liquids but not enlarged like other suffers?

Hi my 5yr old son started with tonsilitis 6 weeks ago, he s had 2 courses of anti-biotics. But his tonsils are still swollen, enlarged gland on right side of neck, adenoids are causing sleep apnea. Blood tests only showed anaemia and are awaiting swab results. He s too tired to go to school and im worried. The doctor is refusing to refer him to ENT specialist.

Recent questions on  Iodine

Hello, Im 41 and I have been on metropropolol for about 3years( its a low dosage of 25 milligrams). My heart doctor has told me that down the road i will need a valve replacement. Recently I went off the meds because I was feeling worse on it rather than better. Symtoms being: extremely tired feeling, flu like symptons, hair falling out. So I stopped taking the meds. I did call the my heart dr prior to doing this and he told me to get my thyroid tested. If it was a thyroid problem I was to discontinue the meds. Do to job loss I didnt get the test and I orderd iodine tablets to jump start my thyroid. Its been a month or so since taken the iodine. I have seen some remarkable improvements.My breast dont ache, skin and hair is much shinier, etc. My problem was last week right before I got my period I felt terrible in my body. My chest felt so heavy and right before I would fall asleep it almost felt like I would quit breathing so I would jump awake. Due to no sleep or just a few hours in that week the problems got much worse. My legs felt heavy and in my head I felt confusion.Also when I tried to sleep my arms and hands would get numb and my skin would feel like I was on fire. The only relief I had was to sleep on a recliner in a upright position on my back. However once I started my period all of these nasty symptoms went away. Im not looking forward to my next period; it almost felt like I was on death s door so to speak. Any advice would sure be much appreciated.

I am female aged 64. Yesterday I noticed a foul smelling discharge from my belly button, it smelled liked blue cheese but stronger. On inspection I have a very red and sore navel, it is really uncomfortable. I have been cleaning it with Iodine since then, is this the correct treatment? I live in Spain by the way.

I have been tired for a few years now. My husband and I just moved across country and the fatigue from that has been debilitating. I now am swelling in my ankles and I cannot get a good night's sleep. I thought I might be developing heart disease as I am about 80 pounds overweight. Tonight I stumbled on articles about iodine deficiency, same symptoms, and in addition my skin is very dry. I also tend to suffer from depression periodically and anxiety. We don't have a lot of money so maybe you have some advice as to where to start on this. I am so tired of being tired. I need to fix it.

Hi, I eat healthly, I use alkalising salts twice daily I take digestive enzymes, vitamin d3, selenium and iodine drops in the morning.for breakfast I have a protein smoothy with fresh orange juice raspberries and udos oil. I eat about every three hours either snacking on nuts or a salad with a form of protein in it. At night I eat a protein either fish, meat or soya, and green veg. And supplement wise in the evening I take digestive enzyme 4 fish oil capsules, selenium and iodine. Also I forgot to mention every main meal I take a digestive enzyme and 1 D3. But when ever I go to the toilet I have a very loose stool, why is this please?

I have a nodule on my neck for a few days now . My doctor think it could be my thyroid . She gave me a prescription for a CT scan with contrast . Wouldn't the contrast affect my thyroid even more since it has iodine ?

Can Povidine iodine be used to clean area of Pilonidal cyst . The product says do not use for 5 to 7 days. What about Dettol; an XXXXXXX brand disinfectant. Could any of these products cause local irritation apart from an allergic reaction . Thank...
