  • Maybe you have thrust or are they pus pockets? if so I would go to the doctor not a dentist and get evaluated ..

  • If you have thrush, a regular doctor can prescribe medication to treat it. It's a form of yeast. Also eat some yogurt that has the live cultures in it, it should help too. Thrush is more common in infants but adults can get it too.

  • is it possible that you have strep throat, If you have pustules back in your tonsils it would be a definite possibility. Do you have a fever or anything else?

  • Or it could be this:

    A tonsillolith is material that accumulates on the tonsil. They can range up to the size of a peppercorn and are white/cream in color. The main substance is mostly collagen, but they have a strong unpleasant odor because of hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan and other substances.

  • This is something you are definitely going to have to see a dr. to diagnose. :/ GL I hope it's something really minor!
