Sore throat, swollen tonsils,, white bumps on tonsils, itchy mouth. What can be done?

Hello. A few days ago I started getting a sore throat and you could tell in my voice that something was wrong. I noticed yesterday that my right tonsil is swollen a little bit and has a few white bumps on it. My left tonsil is fine which is weird. I also have itchy mouth, ear and throat. It makes me cough and the right side of my nose is more stuffy than the left. What could be wrong?

hello and welcome to HCM,

Since you have both an tonsillar problem and nose problem you need to see your ENT as soon as possible

get your tonsils examined and if required remove them in case you are getting recurrent infection
Get an endoscopy and CT of your nose and PNS to get a better idea of the stuffiness problem and plan a treatment startegy

take care
