Thanks for writing to us about your query.

I read your query regarding your throat infection involving tonsils. As you said that you have a white bump on your one tonsil, this indicates for acute follicular tonsillitis. You have also noticed a boil on your leg.

Your symptoms clinically favors the strep infection. So I will like to suggest you to consult ENT doctor for thorough examination,and relevent investigation and treatment. Because strep infection has lot of systemic complications which may be avoided by taking prompt treatment under care of expert hands.

I hope this explanation answers your query.
