Confused about a throat infection?

like i dunno what i have i mean i have alot of the regular symptoms for most throat infections but i wanna know like the specific one i have?
like i have
-swollen glands at the side of my neck and i mean they are badly swollen you dont have to feel them they are proper bulging lol
-swollen tonsils (theres like no gap between them they are that big)
-they are realllyyyyy redish purpley
-they are only one white spot on my right tonsil which seems to be the least painful side
- i dont have a cough or anything but my voice is quiet effected i just cant cough its too painful
i dunno id go to the doctors but its too expensive and i hate taking general tablets or things like strepsils because most of them make me ill
i dunno i thought it was tonsilitus but i think you only have to have loads of white patches for that? does anyone have any idea?
i dont expect like perfect diagnosis but something will help

Re: Confused about a throat infection?

Definitely sounds like tonsilitis. You should get an antibiotic.

Well, I guess you'll either eventually get over it or not.
