Could be a bacterial infection, thrush or strep throat sometimes you may get strep w/o displaying any symtoms for a 1 to 2 days, whatever it is I would go see the doc just to make sure.

I recently had a tonsillolith… a buildup of material in the back of my throat. Looks exactly the same as when I get them with strep, except I didn’t have any of the other symptoms. Maybe check that out? They are also called tonsil stones. I just plucked mine right out, which is gross but effective.

No clue on the dry mouth though, so it may be something else.

@MrsWrangler:  Yep, exactly.  I had one of these too.  It went away on its own in a few days.  No pain, swelling, or sickness symptoms.

White spots on tonsils.  One word: STREP.  I had it one time with zero symptoms except the white spots. The only reason I knew I had it was because my fiance was sick as a dog and the doc told him he had strep. So, I went and got the strep test and sure enough i had it! No fever, no sore throat, nothing.

I know you said it’s def not strep because you have had it before and you were really sick then…and I was the same way.  I honestly would have never guessed that I actually had strep.

@abbie017:  I dont think thats what the OP is describing. Tonsil stones are not too terribly uncommon

Are you tired?  White spots on your tonsils could be mono?  I would go to the doctor and get checked out.
