My tonsils are red and puffy and there is a medium/big white bump on one side and it's very painful and I have a bad earache as well.is it tonsillitis?
Tonsillitis: This is a generic term, meaning inflammation of the tonsils. So, the answer to your question is "yes" you have it. Whether it is viral or bacterial is the issue.
