Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, hard white dot then lump on tonsil.
I ran everything through WebMD which suggests it's probably tonsillitis. However, I would like and actual person to give me a theory.
About 3 weeks ago I noticed a hard, white, tiny lump on my soft pallet. it felt like I had some food stuck in the back of my throat. When I asked some family members, they likened it to a pimple in my throat. I scratched at it ( i know I shouldn't have) and after a few days it seemed to disappear. But, the roof of my mouth was spotted with red dots. Then that went away. Now starting about a week ago my throat started to sting. That grew into a medium discomfort with slight pain.
I am experiencing difficulty swallowing again. When I open my mouth wide to look my throat hurts. It also appears that I have a round puss like spot on one of my tonsils. I also just took my temperature and I have a 99.7, which yes isn't high but i normally run low ( 95 normally) With what I told you guys, do you have any suggestions for me?

so it sounds like tonsillitis then? The only reason I hesitate to goto the doctors for an examination is because i am a single father of two, the youngest being only 4 months. I don't want to have to take my girls to a place full of sick people. Thanks for the response.
