Swollen tonsil and post nasal drip. Pain while swallowing. Sore hard lump in the armpit. What is it?

Hi. Feel post nasal drip for a few days now. Only left tonsil is swollen with white stuff in the crypt of my tonsil. Used to tonsil stones, but this makes swallowing a little difficult. No fever, but last night developed a sore, pea sized lump in my left armpit. It burns and is sore, not sure if it folliculitis which I suffered from with my armpits. Put a little of the ointment for my folliculitis on my left armpit and it stung. Have been stressed out all month and just kind of tired.

You have food debries in tonsillar crypts .The tonsillar crypts are normal structure in the tonsil present in every person.
The food debries need to be cleaned by gargle .You need to gargle 3 times a day ,You can use listerine or betadine 2 tsf in 2 tsf in water for gargle .
It is when there is pain you need to take antibiotics .
The arm pit swelling is different from tonsillar swelling.
