Thank you. White bumps in the throat can indicate strep throat or another infection including tonsillitis.

I would recommend you call her Doctor and let him know about the white spots and ask if he would order an antibiotic over the phone as it is the weekend. IN the mean time, ibuprofen according to package directions will help with swelling and pain, plenty of fluids will also help. Ask her to rest to conserve energy. I hope this information helps, please let me know if I can help further:-)
