Dear laradreamsbig
Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon. On the basis of information provided, it appears that it could be a viral infection , STD or a suppurative infection of tonsils. I would need more information to help you further
Do you have fever
Do you have rash
Do you have any difficulty in swallowing
Have you noticed any pain in your belly
Is there any history of recurrent episodes of tonsillitis in past

Or it will be appropriate to consult a ENT surgeon and you may require some tests. I would further advise you to avoid any kind of self medication

Do let me know if youneed further help about it

with regards
Ravinder Sharma
