Getting strep throat every month



Seems like almost every 3-4 weeks my throat gets so sore I can't swallow anything... Any ideas on what it is?
Friend said it may be tonsillitis... I have no clue. My throat is super red.

Don't smoke.

Going to the doctor on Friday hopefully

Yep, you sound like you need your tonsils out. I'd make an appt. with an ENT.

Have you take antibiotics for it before?

Are there any white spots in or around the tonsils?

It's definitely aids. I read about this. You need to alert anyone that you have slept with in the last 6 months.

Ah, maybe the doc will give you a bit better antibiotic this time. I recently had some reoccurring strep for about a month b/f we finally kicked its ass.

Seriously tho, I'd buy a new toothbrush after Friday.

Would tonsils cause strep throat? Is there a solution to the strep throat?

I had this when I was in HS. As soon as I'd stop antibiotics, it's come right back. ENT said strep was "imbedded" in my tonsils. Had them out and never had a problem again.

You may be the carrier or someone who is near you is a carrier. Typically the other carries the virus and you keep contracting it. Both of you would need to be dosed high concentration antibodies.

Go see an immunologist. I have little resistance to strep. Working with an immunologist to build up my bodies resistance to it.

It is a long process.

No joke, gonorrhea of the mouth is usually misdiagnosed as strep throat. If you've been using that mouth for any extracurricular activities then quit lying to your doc about it or you'll never get those sweet VD meds you obviously need so bad.
