Brief Answer:
Sore throat

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the information.
The pictures are showing that you have tonsillitis.
Take tablet amoxicillin plus clavulinic acid 625 mg twice daily and tablet levocetrizine plus phenylepherine combination twice daily for a week.
Use hexidine gargles and take tablet vitamin c once daily.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
Wish you get well soon.
Thanks and regards
