A:   Hello,
Thanks for posting question at ATD.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.

I have seen your images and it can be a part of streptococcal infection but it is superimposed fungal infection also. You should consult your physician again and take antifungal tablet.

You should gargle with salons water to relief your pain.
You can take painkiller after consulting with your treating physician.

Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Patient: Its usually white spots i just finished drinking tea. I should have said that. But why do you think it might be a fungal infection.
Patient: This should be a more accurate picture.
Doctor: Hi,
These white spots can be due to fungal infection because it is very common after antibiotic treatment.
