A:   Thank you for your question. The picture you have provided is consistent with a streptococcal throat infection. You will need to have this examined once again by your doctor and start a course of antibiotics. Your tonsils seem quite inflamed and this could be the reason for possible bleeding that you are experiencing. Please see your doctor to start treatment immediately.
