Hello Azis, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Ulcer in the throat or in medical terms peritonsil abscess is a bacterial infection due to complications from inflammation of the throat, tonsils, gums, and teeth that are not handled properly, so that it can trigger a bump containing pus in the area around the tonsils. Symptoms of peritonsillary abscess include fever, difficulty opening the mouth wide, difficulty swallowing, swelling of the face or neck, hoarseness, and bad breath.
If peritonsillary abscess is not treated properly, it can cause further complications in the form of spread of infection to other places, can even cause narrowing of the airway. Handling of this disease varies depending on the condition of your current complaint, can be in the form of antibiotics, pus removal from boils, to surgery. I suggest you to consult directly with an ENT specialist doctor so that a thorough examination can be done, such as questions and answers, vital signs examination, physical examination of the mouth, throat, neck and additional examinations if necessary such as blood tests, and examination of pus ulcers so that treatment can be done according to your diagnosis.
