Brief Answer:
Chronic tonsillitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Apology for the delayed reply.
The picture shows tonsillitis. Thrush us usually not localised and your lesion is not thrush.
You should continue with the antibiotics for 5 days course and take tablet vitamins c once daily.
Do hexidine gargles. The tonsillolith will fall off eventually.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Wishing you a speedy recovery

Thanks and regards
