How to remove white background from within letters

I placed text with a white background on the image in Photoshop. Then I used the magic eraser to remove the white background.
But white remains within some letters, such as O and d.
Is there some quick way to remove the white from the letters?

just make sure that you uncheck the contiguous box option when selecting the white colour with magic wand

Not familiar with Photoshop but the following article http://kb.restaurantengine.com/remove-logo-background-make-it-transparent-using-photoshop/ might prove helpful in solving the problem.

Basically you make the white colours transparent.  
The link uses an underneath layer to show which parts of the upper layer have not been made transparent.
Once the upper layer has been fixed you delete the underneath layer.

See if this works: Place the layer with the text and do not clean with the Magic eraser, but rather set the blend mode for that layer to Multiply.

If you have the original template the background, make a new text in a separate new transparent image the size of the center you want this text to be type into it the words you want, colour it deselect it  and  then copy it and paste it into the original background as a transparent, you can position it,  this way all the holes in those letters will have no inner colours an match.
Black letters is difficult to read on the purple areas as is. maybe you could consider different coloured letters
example here I wrote hello world in a 300 x 300 transparent image
