It is not tonsillitis. It is generalised Pharyngitis. Antiseptic gargles and symptomatic drugs. If required Antibiotic after third day.

Pus or membrane should b sent for throat swab.. Look for neck swelling or difficulty in breathing it may diphtheria . Crystalline penicillin and ADS is preferred if it is diphtheria.. pulse rate should b counted .. if it's bradycardia .. go for ecg also

Those look like follicles. Always best to check with tongue depressor to see if pus or follicles or membrane. Throat swab to get culture and sensitivity. Always best to start with augmentin in oral cavity infections. Otherwise based on the report only u treat

Follicular tonsillitis...Throat swab culture and sensitivity , antiinflammatories, antacids , betadine gargle with equal dilution, antihistamines

Follicular tonsilitis
