Patient :I think I burned my tonsil with a very spicy food. The horrible sensation lasted almost 10 minutes and I even felt it in my ear. My throat turned red and so did my face and chest. About a week later,im looking in the mirror and one tonsil looks sort of deflated. Should I get them removed? I feel sick and my throat hurts.
