I have these little white bumps around the red of my tonsils. What is that? I just got over strep throat a month ago and my tonsils are now going down

In brief: White bumps

White bumps may represent tonsillar stones which is debris that has become calcified and deposited in the crevices of the tonsils.

In brief: Pus pockets

These pockets of pus are very common with strep throat and should go away as you get better.
