Unhappy white painful bump on tonsil.

I have this painful sore on my tonsil and have had it for 4 days now. I thought it may be a canker sore and been putting the spray for sore throat on it and some lidocane stuff but doesn't really help and now my neck is painful under my jaw bone and eating and drinking is hard. I have 2 small kids and a husband so if it is something contagous then i need to get it check on. Any ideas on what it could be. No cold symptoms or anything.
today i have like 3 more on the same tonsil and i think there is more where i can't see.

Re: white painful bump on tonsil.

mine doesn't look like a pimple it looks more like a canker sore or like a scrap then covered by white but the thing is now i have more of them and three swollen areas on my tounge but not painful. The white things on my tonsil is extremely painful. I am going to the DR today because i cant take it anymore.
