Suggest treatment for white spot on tonsil

I m 17 years old and I ve had problems with my tonsils mostly since last year. Last year I had to have syrup antibiotics every other month, and in April I was sent to hospital, since I couldn t swallow pills. Back then, I was sent with 104 fever and I had a white strip across both of my tonsils, which were very close to each other, as they were very inflamed, and I was put on the drip. This year, every now and then I get white spots on my tonsils. It was considered that I take my tonsils out, however, since I sing, I don t want to risk anything happening to my voice. In about a week I m going abroad, and I ve got that white spot on my right tonsil. What do you think I should do ? Thanks.

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to tonsillitis which is an inflammation of the tonsils.
The white spot is related to a bacterial infection.
I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the inflammation.
I also suggest to gargle with salty water.
If the symptoms continue and you will have a fever,I suggest using a cycle of antibiotics .

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
