After antibiotic treatment, I still have white spots in throat?

I have been coughing for about a month. Two weeks ago my tonsils swell up and my throat became extremely painful, for which I received antibiotics. This worked fast and the inflamed tonsils are gone.

However, now that I have completed the antibiotics cure about a week ago, I am still coughing and I have these white spots in the back of my throat. What do I have that was not cured by the antibiotics? Thank you!

Thanks for the query..

It looks the Infection is reduced in severity but not completely cured..
But as the symptoms have subsided you need not to worry as the remaining Infection will also get resolved soon..
So for now you can continue doing warm saline gargles and antiseptic mouthwash gargles..

Hopefully the symptoms will resolve in another week..

Hope this helps..
