my daughter has white spots where her tonsils are , is this normal ?


White and yellow coating on the tonsil can be due to infection of the tonsils and is not worrisome. A course of antibiotic should be able to take care of it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
