... LONG back story! Sorry :( I have had occasional issues with lingual tonsillitis about 2 times a year for the past 3-4 years. I would start with a very sore throat very far back, and finally my local ENT scoped me and found it was the lingual tonsils causing the pain. I would normally take a round of antibiotics and a steroid dose pack and have relief within a couple of... (0 replies)
... swollen tonsil is probably tonsillitis, but they didn't prescribe anything. I just saw someone else the other day who wasn't aware of my diagnosis and was given prednisone to see if swelling would go down. This was low dosage for five days. The lymph nodes decreased, but not the tonsil. ... (1 replies)
... what about oral steroids/prednisone? That is cheap and would help with swelling (10 replies)

... I went to the doctor and they gave me prednisone because my tonsils were so swollen, and as the swelling went down the white patches on my tonsils while they were swollen began to come off as I coughed. ... (3 replies)
... hence why the antibiotics were not working. the rash was there, but not itching before the antibiotics. prednisone pretty much killed the itching, and now i have a prescription for astelin. doc says once the sinuses quit draining and clear up my tonsils should go back down... ... (3 replies)

... I had my tonsils out on Wednesday morning and have been trying to keep up with my fluids. Wednesday and yesterday I was able to eat a lot, ramen, apple sauce, popsicles, ice cream and mashed potatoes etc. I'm taking Roxicet for the pain, and prednisone. Last night before bed, I had a hard time breathing - which improved sucking on ice chips and taking the prednisone - and then... (2 replies)
... still swollen like that. I don't think your wisdom teeth would cause your tonsils to stay swollen like that. My tonsils remained swollen and I just kept getting tonsillitis over and over again. You might have chronic tonsillitis like I did. Prednisone and antibiotics helped but never fully cleared up the infection. ... (8 replies)
... Hello! I had my tonsillectomy done on Thursday the 22nd and am 27 years old, so we are awfully close together. I feel pretty fortunate because I'm not really in a whole lot of pain, the most pain I've felt is first thing in the morning when I wake up. I know that your getting tired of drinking straight water, cause I sure am, but I wonder if your apple juice is aggrevating... (47 replies)
... yone that I am a baby when it comes to pain, and I didn't think I could handle it. Yeah, it seems like it's a really bad case of tonsillitis, but even then I had prednisone and hydrocodone to help me get over the pain. ... (47 replies)
... Sometimes, that condition is caused by peridontal disease. The dentist should have a good look at you to see if you have any infections at the roots of your teeth. I know that dentistry is even harder to come by than medical help. But most dental infection is not treatable by the same antibiotics that other things are. Also. it will cause the same symptoms as Chronic Fatigue... (12 replies)
... t have a fever though, the first course of antibiotics got rid of that. The doctor has given me two full courses of antibiotics in October. They put me on Prednisone for a week or so and it only brought down the swelling in my neck temporarily. ... (12 replies)
