Pus formation and slit in the throat. Have tonsillitis. What is the treatment?

Hello, I had tonsillitis at the beginning of last year and it was horrible, I have in the left side of my throat a little hole like slit that when I pull the skin back there are little pus balls that I can squeeze out, they really smell I just really want to know if it is the start of tonsillitis again or if it is something else that will just go away or that I can do something to make it go away so it doesn t turn into tonsillitis Thanks Steph B

Hi thanks for your question.
The hole on left side with puss ball could be pharngitis(inflammation of pharynx) or it could be early tonsilitis.You need treatment for pharyngitis as well as for tonsilitis.The treatment for recurrent tonsilitis is tonsilectomy.I would suggest you to consult an ENTsurgeon,who may be able to examine you,may treat your pharyngitis and may remove your tonsils,if needed.
Hope this answers your question.
