It sounds like swollen lymph nodes from a throat infection.  If you have a fever of 102 or above it could be strep throat.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

White patches are common in many throat  infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which you have may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
