my mouth

Can anyone help? A couple of days ago I got diagnosed with tonsilitis and have antibiotics from doctor. I am also in a lot of pain in the mouth area, especially on one side. On examination I have white spots on my upper gums, on the roof of my mouth, at the back inside of my mouth (there's one large painful one here) and I can hardly sleep because of the pain. Is this an offshoot of tonsilitis or something else?

You may have thrush in your mouth
It is sometimes a side effect from taking antibiotics
You can show your pharmacist/chemist and they will give you 'Nilstat' oral drops or somethin similar if it is thrush Otherwise see gP
