They have been there for a year and a half. I scrape them off and they come right back. My throat is red but not that painful. Tonsils are swollen some. I have had 4 throat cultures over the past 1 1/2 years and no strep, plus I am on amoxicillin now and they aren't going away. MY EBV titers are somewhat high, but doc says that means past infection I dont seem to have a problem w/yeast... What is this? I have seen about 7 docs for this and no one seems concerned. Any ideas? Does chronic EBV cause this? Thanks for any help.
