How the hell can one tonsil hurt? *hurry up and answer I have to leave for work in 5 mins*

 My left tonsil hurts really bad and is inflamed looking but the right one is fine. I thought since they are so close together they'd both get something not just one..... like little kids that always play together.

 

Anyone know why only one would hurt and be swollen/red? (almost purple looking?)

You might have a canker sore on it.

 I've had that! Once it was strep...once it was an infected tonsil. Both times I got antibiotics.

  can't get strep. physically impossible. I inherited some kind of immunity from my dad.

Wouldn't both get infected from being so close together, like it would spread?

A canker sore is not herpes.  You get canker sores from eating a lot of salty foods and when you're fighting off a virus.

 Mine didn't. They even did a cat scan (now that I think about it...I think it was an MRI...they just stuck my head in the tube anyway) to check my jaw. My reg Dr said it would need drained, and sent me to a specialist. The specialist looked in my mouth and said antibiotics would work fine and sent me home.

I had this recently. It was caused from post nasal drip due to my allergies. The Dr. told me to gargle salt water.Hope that helps
