Patient :2 days ago I woke up feeling Ill, had a mild fever and the gland on the left under my jaw was swollen and painful. There was very little tonsil pain. A day after that the fever and gland swelling subsided and now I just feel a bit fatigued but the tonsil pain has gotten slightly worse. It's been the same for the last day. There appears to be a white lesion on it which I assume to be pus. It's only on the left side. I can still eat and swallow but there is mild discomfort. Should I see a doctor?
