Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting the query

The description given by you seems to be related to the trauma over the tonsil. The black spot would be the blood clot, following trauma. The whitish spot could be the slough over the traumatic region.

If you could kindly send me an image of the same, I'll be able to help you in a better way.

Hope I have answered your query; I'll be available for the follow up queries.

It's a blood clot over the right tonsil

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing back and uploading the image.

I have examined the image thoroughly and I would stick on to the comments I made in my previous response.

Do not worry! It's not harmful. I would suggest you to drink plenty of warm water and do gargles with warm water; the clots will get dislodged.

Hope this clarifies your doubts; wish you good luck and good health.
