I think I have tonsillitis because my neck is sore my tonsils are red and it hurts to swallow a bit and I have the chills and I have a sore head?

Tonsillitis. If your tonsils are red and painful, you have tonsillitis. If symptoms warrant, see your MD.
See your PCP. If you think you have symptoms of sore throat or tonsillitis , visit your health care provider for consultation tests and treatment.

I have a very sore throat, (several days)and it hurts to swallow. I'm starting to see white spots on my tonsils but can't be sure. Tonsillitis or strep?

Could be both. "tonsillitis" is a nonspecific term for inflammation of the tonsils. "strep" refers to a specific cause of tonsillitis. But you can get strep without having tonsils and you can get tonsillitis without having strep. Only a throat culture/rapid test can discern if strep is present. Usually there is fever, swollen glands without cold symptoms in strep infection. Important to treat strep - see doc. Read more...

Get seen ASAP. You are pretty darn sick! If you have vomited so much your mouth is dry, that is very worrying, because it means you may be very dehydrated. Please get seen today before things get worse! As it is, you are quite sick enough. You may have strep, and if it is not treated withing 10 days of onset of symptoms, you are at risk of getting rheumatic heart disease later. So don't delay, please. Read more...
