Spots on back of tongue, sore throat. Taken penicillin. What are they?

Hi For the past three weeks I ve had nasty spots on the back of my tongue and a painful sore throat. I ve seen my GP who said it is a bacterial infection and gave me a course of Penicillin . However I ve taken the course and still no better. My 2 year old also had spots on his tongue as well. What are they, the GP said its inflammed tastebuds in his case. I m so fed up of feeling tired and just want to get rid of them. Regards Louise Jenkinson

thanks for yous query.
Those spots on the posterior 1/3 rd of tongue are normally present in everybody. those are lingual tonsils i.e. lymphatic aggregates in submucosa of tongue.
Some times during the attack of URTI they swollen and infected and causing throat pain and difficulty in swallowing.
You need to take antiseptic gargles and anti inflammatory drugs like tab Diclo with serratiopeptidase.
Add anti histaminics like Levocet.
Avoid cold & junk foods, smoking and alcohol.
Many thanks, take care, bye.
