ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi, you seem to be having acute rhinopharyngitis/tonsilitis and the white spot you are seeing in the throat is most probably a collection of debris in the tonsillar crypt or a pus follicle in the tonsil. Please take steam along with antiseptic gargles. As you are having ear ache also, you should take antibiotics in consultation with an ENT so as to prevent infection in the middle ear. Regards
