Thanks for choosing H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your query regarding big tonsils creating obstruction in swallowing and at the same time your child is also having Laryngomalacia.
Considering you problems it is clear that your child is having Chronic Tonsillitis with Laryngomalacia.As far as treatment is concern that is only Surgery.
I hope your query is now answered.
With Regards.
