Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good day
Looks like Acute follicular tonsillitis. It requires immediate Antibiotic therapy. Gargle with warm water and salt water for relief. Eat soft and bland food, not hot in temperature. Visit your ENT Specialist immediately.

hi, welcome to healthcare magic,

Tonsilolith is a condition in which stone formation occurs in the tonsillar crypt, mainly crypta magna.

Treatment includes antibiotic therapy, along with supportive treatment, with warm saline gargles.

If the condition persists after a course of antibiotic, then you will have to go for tonsillectomy.
