What is the white spot on the tonsil? Had bad cold and sore throat.

I have a white spot on my right tonsil about the size of a small pea. I had a bad cold about four weeks ago then a sore throat a week later. I noticed the white spot about three weeks ago and went to my Dr. and he said it was just the tonsils doing their job. I m worried now because it s been three weeks, I ve got an appointment to see my ENT in five days but I m freaked out. It doesn t hurt but I think it seems to itch a little bit once in a while. What could this be?

Hello dear...
The symptoms mentioned in your post suggests that you might be having Tonsillitis.

Management consists of:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol
3. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports to remove the causative organism.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

If symptoms still will be better to consult an ENT specialist.
There is no need to will be perfectly fine.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
