Doctor can 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 irritants.

I have a white spot on my right tonsil and in the middle is a black spot, my throat hurts. What could it be?
White spot on tonsil: At your age, this could indicate pus in response to an infection. Both viral and bacterial infections can cause this, but the common concern is for strep throat.

Have tests run to confirm/exclude strep so you will have access to meds if needed. ...Read more
