Today, she told me that now the back of her throat is swollen and the white spot is still there but there is still no pain. We don t know if this is tonsillitis . And she just told me that the only pain she has is when she opens her mouth her head , jaw, and under her tongue hurt. no where near her throat and her face is sore .

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
There seems to be no major problem associated with the description you have given. The whiter spot can be a mere blocked tonsillar crypt. The swelling/pain can be an early symptom of viral infection. No need to worry, advise her to drink plenty of warm water. If the pain persists please consult a good ENT specialist.

Take care
