My Tonsillitis started out with little white spots on my tonsils. After I went to the Emergency Room, they gave me a penicillin injection. Its been three days now, and the white spots have gotten bigger and has spread a little. It hurts more than ever, I cant eat or drink without it hurting. Let alone swallow my own spit. So basically , moral of the story does it get worse before it starts to get better because I'm about ready to just say forget it and get them taken out.
