Good morning my doc since the 3rd of April night began to feel difficult to swallow, then the next morning I saw the condition of my mouth turned out my tonsils had swollen and reddish, as well as the uvulula, then I noticed in the deep part there was a white spot, at 4 april I just slept all day because I was a little dizzy when I was active and it was hard to swallow, so I only ate porridge, then rinsed salt water. Then today on April 5, when I woke up I saw the condition of my mouth again and on the ceiling near the uvula red spots appear. Today I am not so dizzy anymore like yesterday, but it is more painful to swallow than yesterday, and the white spots on the tonsils are increasing, but I do not have a fever. About my tonsillitis treatment can still be done at home or should I monitor several first day Doc to be taken to see a doctor?
