You may have Tonsillitis, an infection of the tonsils. For this, see your doctor.

White spots on tonsils can be what are also known as tonsilloliths or tonsil stones. Another term for this condition is cryptic tonsils, as these "stones" take root in tonsil crypts, which are divots or pockets in the tonsils' surface. So what are these things? This has actually been the subject of very recent research, and only just fairly recently has there been any real concrete facts made widely known about these.

They are actually packets of mucus covered food particles which have become lodged into these divots, and much like how an oyster secretes a substance around a grain of sand to make a pearl, mucus is then secreted around these food particles which then somewhat solidifies around them. It is then that these appear as white spots on tonsils and can become uncomfortable.

If you have white spots on tonsils, also known as tonsil stones, tonsilloliths, etc., and you don't want to undergo any undue surgery, if you'd like to keep your tonsils (as really, they are actually healthy in such a case), it is best to look into such natural herbal remedies to avoid outlandishly expensive surgery - costly for both the body as well as the bank account. White spots on tonsils in the case of tonsilloliths is certainly no reason at all on it's own for such drastic surgery - don't you agree?

Strep throat symptoms are quite similar to what you are describing and that of tonsillitis mentioned by TheGeeze. With strep you may develop a red throat with white patches. The tonsils are red and enlarged. There may be specks of pus present on the tonsils, or there may be a grey or white covering on the tonsils. With strep throat, people may also have trouble swallowing and may have tender, swollen lymph glands on the sides of the neck.

It is nearly impossible to get rid of strep on your own. You would require antibiotics and some medical attention right away. If you are running a fever for more than 48 hours, you should definately see the doctor.
