Tonsillitis

Went to the dr in late November for strep throat and a sinus infection, tested negative for strep but I have cobblestone throat and my left tonsil is inflamed. My doctor said I have some pus behind It & I have a small hole on my tonsil as well. My throat does not hurt and I no longer have any symptoms. I have taken both azthromycin and doxycycline. My throat still looks the same. My doctor has said just to keep an eye on it. Should I just go ahead and go to an ENT?

Hello~Even though there may not appear to be an infection anymore, it is still a good idea to have the issues causing it checked out. I would certainly see the ENT and have it taken care of. Having a hole in your tonsils and still some pus means it could flare up at any time, and this time, it could be worse.

So, your pcp is monitoring this?  If you have great insurance and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg, never hurts to get it looked at by an ENT but otherwise, it sounds like you've covered your basis.  I'm glad you have no symptoms!
