    I have tonsillitis and I am taking penicillin to treat it. However not only is there white spots on my tonsils but there's also black. Any time I have had tonsillitis in the past they have never been black. Has anyone else ever had this? My doctor didn't seem too concerned so I'm assuming it's quite normal, but I've never seen it before and it's freaking me out a bit!

    Hey,

    The best thing to do is to actually go and physically see your GP to show them. Perhaps inform yourself on your symptoms by looking at it online, and seeing what might be the causes for the white spots or the darkening of your tonsils.

    Hopefully you'll get better soon and I totally feel for you :console:

    If there's anything else you'd like to ask, just quote me by clicking thebutton and I'll try to help you out as soon as possible.

    I showed my gp yesterday and although she seemed concerned she did not mention the black, only that it looked like a possible abscess. I'm producing ridiculous amounts of excess saliva too, never had this with tonsillitis before so I'm just not sure what's happening
