Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, hard white dot then lump on tonsil.

I ran everything through ***** 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?

Go to the doctor - you likely need a course of penicillin

In the meantime, go and buy some Cepacol lozonges and suck them to relieve the discomfort, and take Tylenol for the fever and pain

Re: Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, hard white dot then lump on tonsil.

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.

Re: Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, hard white dot then lump on tonsil.

You could safely wait another 24 hours and see fi it gets better or worse, because a lot of tonsilitis will resolve without antibiotics.

Using the lozonges and tylenol or advil can help keep you comfortable while your body heals - but if you get any worse, you raly should see a doc

Thank you very much. Will wait an extra day or two to see if it clears up.
