Puss pockets on tonsils

I have had several puss pockets on my tonsils for several days now but have not had any other symptoms of having been sick or being sick.  What could this be?

Hi

Ths may be a case of pharyngitis. Is there any pain in swallowing? Any flulike symptoms prior to these?

Another differential may be cold sores and aphthous ulcers .They may involve the roof of the mouth and they may also be painful. In your case, you may need antibiotics for this and a throat swab for culture.

I suggest you have this assessed by your physician. Recurrent pharyngitis needs further evaluation and proper management.In your case, pharyngitis may be a likely differential.
