My tonsils turned black!?

About a year ago, i had a really sore throat, so I went and checked it out in the bathroom mirror with a flashlight. I had white covering ALL of my tonsils…I figured strep. The next day, I looked at it again, and it had begun to turn black. Then, the day after that, all of the white covering the entirety of my tonsils had turned black, so I went to the hospital. I was tested for both strep and mono, but both turned up negative, so they put my on amoxicillan and a few days later the black started to just fall off. I never got an exact answer on WHAT IT WAS, and I was wondering if anybody could help me out with this.

Thanks

  • Mold.

    Whatever the color if green, black or white, its sounds like mold.

    Next time that happens to you, gargle with salt and warm water.

  • teeth turning black means that the tooth had been bleeding inside..that is what you are seeing, the dried blood…that also means that the tooth is dying or is dead. you will see the tooth looking grey. there is no real time limit on it. but from what you describe he took quite a hit. you might need to go back tot he dentist and see what he has to say about treatment. if he is two he can keep those particular teeth until he is 5-7 yrs. more toward the later boys typically develop later. they do do baby root canal treatments..it is not that big of a deal…but i have seen those teeth that are then covered by silver crowns. i know that sounds awful, but there is not too much economical sense to put porcelain in a child’s mouth…but i am sure that you Dr could offer that to you too. check with the dentist….if you see the teeth changing color…i would. i would be more concerned about the developing adult teeth…the concern would be if the front teeth hit the tooth buds in the accident….or allowing the dying teeth to develop an infection harming the tooth buds of those adult front teeth. again, the best thing is to stay in contact with your dentist and have him/her check to see what he is observing!

  • yup, gargle with salt water. its not serious, just mold on the surface from all of the infection in your tonsils. i would get them taken out.
