Cold, chest congestion, cough, sore throat, white dot on tonsils, swelling. Treatment options?

I currently have a cold with chest congestion and the coughing has caused my throat to become sore. I noticed a small white dot on my right tonsil and when I went to remove it with a Q-tip, the pressure caused yellowish pus to come out. Afterwards the tonsil didn t hurt anymore and was no longer swollen, however the left side still is and is not secreting pus. What can I do? I have tried gargling salt water.

This is a classic presentation of Acute Follicular Tonsilltis.
You should have a proper treatment for 05 days that include combination of...
1. An antibiotic such as Augmentine 625 mg twice a day or according to body weight for 05 days
2. An oral decongestant such as Loratidine twice a day for 05 days
3. An antitussive for cough such as Syrup. Cofcol 02 TSF thrice a day for 07 days

You will be fine within a day or couple with that treatment
