is it normal to develop white spots on the tonsils/throat AFTER starting antibiotics? i didn't notice anything yesterday, just a lot of redness and swelling. today though (it's been exactly 24 hours from the first dose) i see a couple of white spots mainly on my right tonsil (and this one is giving me the most pain when i swallow, too) and like one huge spot that almost makes my whole tonsil look white. i have actually noticed a very slight decrease in pain in the last hour, but these spots are new too. is this normal to develop after the antibiotics have had their chance to start working on the infection?? should i be concerned or call the doctor? ive gargled about 4 or 5 times today too, if that makes a difference.
