ok.. so i have this pus collection on my right tonsil. it covers the whole inside of my tonsil.. and i have hige tonsils. well.. it was hurting extremely bad..along with other symptoms: weakness/tired, fever, earache, chills, stomach ache, extremely hard and painful to swallow... my throat and left tonsil doesnt hurt.. its only the right.. and the swollen lymph.... so i went to the doctor they said i had strepthroat, but barely becuase the second line was kind of visible.. so they gave me antibiodics and pain killers... i've had strep before.. and it wasent like this. i think it's tonsilitus.. but i'm not sure.. anyway.. part of the pus collection came off at the top and it left a huge gaping hole.... is that bad?
