Hole in tonsils area, infected, discolored, green discharge, sensitive, swelling. What is wrong?

I have a hole in the back of my mouth where my tonsils are located. At first I was cleaning it out and a white substance was coming out regularly. The area seems to have become more infected as the white stuff is becoming more discoloured to a greenish tinge and is not coming out as often. The hole has also become very sensitive and has a swollen area that I believe is the location of the rest of the substance.
My thoughts are that it may be pus from the awful taste I get at times.

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding hole in tonsil which gets blocked by white material which comes out on pressing it, sometimes this becomes greenish and the surrounding area gets inflammed and painful.

Your symptomatology tells us that you are having chronic tonsillitis and sepsis so the only remady is the tonsillectomy operation.
