Abnormal, heavy bleeding from mouth while brushing, white pus oozing from right of throat. Serious?

Hey. So right before i go to bed and brush my teeth i notice there is an abnormally large amount of blood comming from my mouth. When i finish brushing my teeth i check my throat and i see that its full of blood and when i opened my mouth wide enough there is this white pus like stuff that leaks out from a what i assume to be a hole in the top right side of my throat in front of my tonsil . everything looks fine except there is this weird looking hard thing right below where the pus is leaking out. Can someone please help me im kinda worried it might be serious

hello and welcome to HCM,

You seem to be having either an infected follicle in the tonsil or a sinus (an opening within the tissue) which has got infected.

In either case it is imperative that you definitely consult an ENT who can properly examine and make an informed diagnosis.

Take only warm water and do not brush very aggressively

take care and get well soon
