For a couple of weeks now there has been this pain in the back of my throat near the tonsils but not the tonsils its self. It feels like strep throat but it only hurts on one side.  Well when i looked in the mirror its off to left rear and its white and painful. Sometimes the pain goes away but its comes back. Idk if may be the cause of bad breath as well. I have never in my life had bad breath until this thing came about. I had a nurse to look and she said it could be a sore of some sort. I took my toothbrush and brushed it because its off to the side and not my tonsils and it began to bleed. It also makes me get ear aches only on the same side as this thing.
