I have alot of trouble with sore throats. It seems I always have one. When I goto the doctor nothing shows up on lab tests, and I just have to wait it out. This has been happening more and more lately. I got my tonsils taken out in Jan. Before that I had lots of bacterial sore throat infections. Now it's just plain sore throats. Any ideas on what this can be? I don't know if this is related, but um..I have a bad smell "down there" right now as well. I don't think its a yeast infection. Thanks for your time.

Have you had your throat swab examined? Do you frequently gargle with warm saline for your throat?
If you have vaginal discharge, it would be best to get yourself examined and tested. Vaginal douching with antiseptics may help for the malodor.
Are you a Doctor, Pharmacist, PA or a Nurse?
