    Pus pocket or abscess on 1 tonsil

    About a week ago I started feeling like I had an ear infection, the next day my throat was hurting when I swallowed. Now its hurting pretty much all the time but it's not severe like any time I've had strep. It's only on one side of my throat too. I looked at my tonsils and my right one only is red, inflamed, and has a medium/large spot on it close to my uvula. I'm just wondering if it will eventually go away, or if I need to go to the doctor. I'm also concerned because they say a sore throat is now a symptom of covid... but they havent given any details about the type of sore throat. What do you think?

    it seems you have an infection and would need an antibiotic.
