Swelling on tonsils
From the past 2 months i have noticed that my left tonsil has swollen up with some soft white like thing(i have attached images). This did not cause me any discomfort but from past 2-3 days i sometimes have a little pain around my left jaw and right jaw.. that goes away on it's quickly. But this swelling is not going away. I visited an ENT and he told me that whenever i eat something, the food rubs my tonsils and hence i have got this swelling. I also gave me some antibiotics and antacid for a week. But still it remained unaffected although the other one is as normal as it should be but the other one remains swollen. What is wrong my tonsil? I have tried to touch the tonsil and it feels soft.
