Hello dear...
Presence of pus pockets in the tonsils suggests that you might be having Acute Tonsillitis.
And the itching of the roof of your mouth may be attributed to post-nasal drip.
Management consists of:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Antihistamines to control runny nose & itching of roof of mouth.
3. Analgesics like paracetamol
4. Antibiotics like amoxicillin to remove the causative organism of Tonsillitis. will be better to meet an ENT specialist & start the treatment.
There is no need to will be perfectly fine.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
