Sore throat, swollen white tonsils, white legion on uvula, pain in both ears, scheduled for wisdom tooth removal. Can I go for it?

I have what I think is tonsillitis - as in I have a very sore throat , swollen white tonsils and a white legion type mark on my uvula , I am a little feverish and have the beginings of pain in both my ears. This is the third time this year I have had similar symptoms. I am looking at visiting a doctor in the next few days however prior to that I am schedualled to have a wisdom tooth removed. Should I still have this done if i m still sick by the time the appointment comes round?

No it is better you wait for the tooth extraction till you are better with antibiotics.The infection can easily spread into bloodstream throgh an open blood veesel during extraction.I shall not prescribe medicines for your sorethroat since you are already scheduled to see a doctor,

Thanks for posting your query.
You should wait for few days till the recovery of your throat discomfort.
You should consult ENT surgeon and physician.
You may have acute bacterial tonsillitis.
Take care,
