    Unhappy Peritonsillar abscess/Quinsy or a mouth ulcer?

    Hi

    I had a throat infection and i finished the antibiotics on Sunday(felt like it had cleared up), but since Monday I have noticed a small ish sore red lump behind the left tonsil with a yellow patch on it, it hurts to swallow,have constant ear,neck & head pain only on the left side, but no fever. Has anyone had a peritonsillar abscess before, do my symptoms sound similar? Or could it just be an ulcer? Don't want to waste my doctor's time, if its something that will pass on its own. Please help

    Thank you
    Mixi
