Has anyone ever had tonsillitis? What's the symptoms? What's the treatment? Let's say you do have it, how long did your doctor say you had to wait to have any physical or sexual contact with your SO? TIA!

You can usually see that they are swollen, red, and usually have white spots on them. I get it all the time. I've never was told not to have physical or sexual contact. My throat hurts like a b***h anyway so BJ's are out of the question lol And usually I'm sick as a dog. Mine are pretty bad right now. I've been on so many antibiotics that I'm getting immune to them. I'm looking into a specialist to get them taken out.

Well my SO thinks he has it. He had it really bad last year supposedly and he said last time his doctor said no physical or sexual contact for 2-3 weeks. Wtf?

Most of the time it's bacterial. Unless they thought it was caused by something that's sexual transmitted, then there shouldn't be a problem. I know there's a few STD's that can hang out in your throat like gonorrhea and HPV but they'd have to actually test for them. I guess the bacteria can transfer to you if he goes down on you and cause some kind of bacterial infection.



ETA: A few months back, I started to get pain on my one tonsil. I looked at it and there was a sore on it. It was small. My OB tested for whatever STD's can form in the throat but they came up negative. On Wednesday I went to my doctor for it because it's pretty big, white and hard. I also have a horrible ear infection. Turned out it's a tonsil stone and it caused an ear infection.
