Detailed Answer:
Hi , thanks for writing to us.

If the child has only enlarged tonsils without fever, sore throat, change of voice, fever, or any difficulty in swallowing, then do not worry.

It may be only physiological enlargement of the lymph tissues.

Anyhow, for confirmation that it is not tonsillitis, kindly get your pediatrician to examine your child.

For further queries, kindly do write to us. Thank you.
