    white patch on tonsil

    A couple weeks ago, I had a very bad sore throat and after several days, notices bumps in the back of my throat. I went to urgent care, told me they were pus pockets, swabbed me for strep(negative) and diagnosed with me pharyngitis. My dentist earlier gave me a script for amoxycillin just in case and the urgent care doc told me I could start taking it, even though I was negative for strep. I never did. My sore throat and pus pockets went away and I started feeling better, so I thought it was viral. Now, within the last few days, my throat is acting funny. Doesnt hurt, maybe a little scratchy on left. A few transient pains through throat. My left sinus is plugged up(i've been suffering from this for over a year), have been experiencing pnd and like I said earlier, feel a scratchiness in my left throat(and ear). Anyway, looked in throat and saw white patch on tonsil(or where tonsil used to be) less than 1/2" long and 1/8" wide with irregular edges. What could this be? Leukoplakia or worse?? Reaction to allergies or gerd( I do have a little acid reflux) Could it be the infection from a couple of weeks ago? I dont have fever or any other symptoms aside from just worry(I have an oral cancer history) I've gargled with salt water a couple times(this is when it starts itching). What do you guys think? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
