If your daughter is suffering from Chronic Tonsillitis and has to take antibiotic course frequently then it is highly recommended that you should get her examined by the ENT specialist and maybe get it removed surgically .

Rheumatic fever cannot be diagnosed by a single test.There are various criteria like Major and minor including clinical symptoms.If her doctor has a doubt of Rheumatic fever he will get her examined so i guess you can relax at present.
