I have a pimple-like sore on what I believe is my tonsillar arch? It isn't necessarily painful, but does cause discomfort. In a matter of 3 days, the swelling increased and a white spot could be seen. I am also having an earache on that side of my head as well. There is almost a throbbing sensation. My wisdom teeth have just started coming in, so I thought that it was pain from that at first, but then noticed that there was a sore. My husband said that I have started snoring in the past 2 days and that my breath has been pretty foul even though I brush my teeth multiple times a day. Should I go to the doctor? I'm not sure what this is, but it is certainly becoming a problem.
This time between the two pictures was only about an hour on the third day.View Thread
