You don't know? Well, that makes 2 of us! LOL! The only way either you or I could possibly know is if you get your throat swabbed and culture sent for analysis. So, I think it's to your advantage (as well as your friends and family so you don't contaminate anybody) to go to the doctor and get yourself tested with what's called a RAPID STREP TEST.

White spots on tonsils w/ a sore throat with or without fever can mean infection. Usually w/ strep throat there is a fever, but not always. I recommend a throat swab for culture (and rapid strep test can be done at same time). Could also be white mucus post nasal drainage down your throat, but best to get a culture if they actually appear to be spots.
