    Strep Throat pus pocket?
    An_257067 posted:
    I came down with strep throat (doctor diagnosed) 2 days ago and since yesterday I have felt very congested but throughout my throat into my nose instead of my nose into my throat (if that makes sense? Like it felt like my throat was clogging up my nose and not the other way around..) well I have been trying to blow my nose all day so it would be easier and I finally got something out and then I got a HUGE chunk of something white and red out.. Kind of seemed like part of my tonsil. It was the size of a half dollar and now one side of my nose and throat feels much more clear, but my throat kind of hurts and feels a little raw. I am taking antibiotics too. Should I be concerned? Or is this completely normal? I haven't had strep like this ever before.
