See doc now: Most minor viral illnesses run about 2 weeks, are worst on about day 4 and then start to get better. If you are feeling this bad a week in, go to the doc. With a swollen tonsil, you could have a throat abscess which can be very dangerous. "Hot Potato" voice is a symptom of this. Coughing blood is not normal. Any problems breathing are considered an emergency.
