I get throat infection when i travel from one place to another

Hi Friends, I get the throat infections as and when I travel from one place to the other. I am not sure for the reason. Is it smoking? Is it due to the low immunity? Is it due to the lifestyle? My Life style is :- I get up come to office , go back and sleep. Week ends i go for outings. I eat little junk but mostly my diet consists of roti and dal. I had tonsilitis symptoms once a doctor told me. But then when i take medicine like woxyrol it comes down. So i want to know in detail. What should i do to prevent from getting throat infection again? Thanks!

Since you have a history of having tonsillitis, it could well be tonsillitis again. The fact is that the most common thing to happen with wether change and water change is tonsillitis. You have two options, take medications each time you get and and th next is surgery. this is what was told to me when i went to ENT guy with repeated tonsil infections.

I had a throat infection more than 6 months ago and my local clinic had no idea what it was and how it was caused so they gave me penecilin as the antibiotic to get rid of the white patch beside my tonsils. I look in the mirror today and a small spec of white has arrived again. When I swallow I can feel that something is there as if there is a chunk of food stuck but it is the white patch. There is no pain and no irritation whatsoever, but I can notice it there. I have been actively performing oral sex to my girlfriend, which may be the primary cause. Currently, she may have a yeast infection on the outer area of her vagina as well (we dont know...small red spot, size of a pea but no swelling or rising). If it is a yeast infection, could it have possibily carried on to my throat? And what medications should I take to cure the white patch? Thank you.

I started using a CPAP machine several months ago. Shorty after I developed a cough and excessive phlegm, diagnosed with pharyngitis and treated with antiobiotics, took 3 weeks to go away. During this time, I did not use the CPAP. When I started the machine again (after cleaning it thoroughly per instructions), the same symptoms returned. What s happening?
