Flesh coloured lump on tonsil? What could it be? Watch

    So since Wednesday last week I've been pretty under the weather.

    On Wednesday I came down suddenly with a sore throat and pain when I swallowed, making it difficult to eat and open my mouth wide because my throat was restricting me. Since then, it's kind of cleared up (only since yesterday) but there's still a pain when I swallow. Yesterday I noticed one flesh coloured bump behind but on my tonsil? My throat was kind of red too.
    Today my throat is less red, I have a dry cough, had a fever briefly, and felt sick briefly, but now I have two flesh coloured lumps on the same tonsil.

    Any idea what it might be or has anyone had this before?

    Could be a sign of tonsillitis or some other throat/ tonsil condition. Whatever it is it sounds nasty and like it will need treatment. Get it checked by a doctor, I would suggest sooner than a regular appointment so maybe call 111 for options.
