Suffering from sore throat, have a skin tag on right tonsil reddish in colour. Solution?

Hi i m 19 I weigh 125 pounds...I woke up with a sore throat on Saturday morning and still have one this morning. Last night it felt like i had gravel in my throat, but today it feels a little different. So I looked in the mirror and it looks like i have a skin tag on my right tonsil . It doesn t look like it s filled with puss or anything like that, it s red. My throat is also red, and it didn t look like there s really any puss on my throat, maybe a little tiny bit.I gargled with salt water, and I do not have the money to go to a doctor until Friday, I also have a 3 month old he at risk for getting sick? He is breast fed, and he only gets one 4 ounce bottle of formula a day for naps. Is there anything else I can do myself before I can make it to the doctor on Friday? I m not worried for me, just my son. I m not kissing him or anything, and I wash my hands as much as possible before and after I change him. Any help or advise would be appreciated! Thank you!

Welcome to HCM,
From your history it seems that you are having Acute pharyngitis.
Go for antibiotics like Azithromicin and anti inflammatory medicines after consulting your doctor.
Do warm saline gargle.
Avoid fried and junk food.
There wont be any problem to your child if you do not kiss and do not bring him close to you.
Ok aqnd bye.
