Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute upper respiratory tract infection with involvement of tonsils and associated secondary bacterial infection.
Presence of enlarged glands and yellowish discharge suggest the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ ENT surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should take complete antibiotic course, mucolytics, decongestants and anti inflammatory medicines on written prescription.
You should avoid oily and sour food, cold drinks and yogurt.
Perform gargles three times in day; a glass of lukewarm water with a pinch of salt.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
