Hi it seems I have strep (lots of white spots on tonsils, 3+days of sore throat) but today I lost my voice. Any thoughts on what caused that?
See a doctor: White spots on the tonsils could mean strep throat, but not necessarily. It could be a virus, and either one could cuase laryngitis with loss of voice. There are other less common infections as well that could do this. But if strep, you definitely need to know in order to get an antibiotic prescription. See your doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

These are usually associated with bad breath among other things (pain/difficulty swallowing, metallic taste, coughing, ear ache, swollen tonsils). The cause is not clear, but it is thought that food and bacteria tend to collect in little crypts on the tonsil leading to residual calcium deposits or stones. See your doc to be sure ...Read more
If white spots on tonsils do not go away with amoxicillin, could it be something other than strep?
Not likely strep: This doesn't sound like strep. Unless you have fever, new sore throat and positive culture, antibiotics are usually avoided. Instead, it may be chronic tonsillitis as others have suggested. Try gargling with baking soda and salt dissolved in water. If the spots persist, seek the care of a local ENT for evaluation. ...Read more

The fact that the white patches are also in the back of the throat suggests some type of infectious disease. My advice is to see an ENT specialist for a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
Could be: White spots on the tonsils could be food particles. The only way to be sure of strep throat is a throat culture. Tonsillitis is a specific diagnosis made by a physician when the tonsils in the throat are red and enlarged and painful. Strep throat does not necessarily indicate tonsil involvement. Obviously you need an objective diagnosis by a specialist. ...Read more
Please see Dr.: Anytime you have a sore throat for over 24 hours, it's best to see the doctor and get a strep test.

Tonsillolith: If the white material on your tonsil was solid, it wasn't active pus, but was a tonsillolith or tonsil stone. They are common and can cause sore throat.

Some people ultimately get their tonsils out, but that's only if the pain persists and the tonsil stones don't get any better. ...Read more

ER should check: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or an abscess.
