Brief Answer:
Acute tonsillitis

Detailed Answer:


From your complaints, you are probably suffering from acute tonsillitis. All the symptoms mentioned by you are suggestive of this. It would need a proper course of antibiotics and some other medicines.

It would be better if you can send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.

Use Hexidine gargles and take tablet vitamin-C once daily.

Follow up with the required information. Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
