The past few weeks I've felt like I've had a cold, sneezing all the time and had a runny nose the past few days. I've also had an itchy throat and these strange spots I can't find anything about. They look like they're filled with pus as you might be able to see in the photo but I can't think what it might be. Anyone got any ideas?http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v194/blinky000/DSC00666.jpg

These look like puss pockets. Puss pockets are a symptom of strep throat, however, typical cold symptoms which you have described ''sneezing...runny nose'', are not. Gargling with warm salted water is helpful, but I would not suggest doing this yet - you are better off going to the doctor and getting it checked out, as it may be in relation to your tonsils.
