Children treated for tonsillitis, fever. Symptoms reappeared. How to get rid of it?

I have 4 children who have had tonsilitis with a temperature on and off for 6 weeks now. Each child has got better then got ill again with a temperature and sore throat days/weeks later. When they had tonsilitis they had very swollen tonsils with white spots, now 2 of them have temperatures again but with more orangey spots/marks on their tonsils. 1 of my children got gingivitis due to the tonsilitis but after 5 days of antibiotics got a temperature again 2 days later for another 2 days. 2 of my children have had a temperature and sore throat on 3 different occasions spread over this 6 week period. Is there anything a doctor can do to treat them all as they just can t seem to get rid of whatever it is they have.

Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
Tonsillitis bacterial or viral, and viral is usually a self limiting condition, i.e. it gets better without treatment,

I would advise:
1.     Avoid spicy foods, chocolates, milk-based sweets, sour substances, curds, butter milk, cool drinks and fried substances
2.     Warm water gargle may be soothing.
3.     Avoid passive cigarette smoking and atmospheric pollution.
4.     Avoid out sided food.
5.     Maintain hygiene.
6.     Frequently remind your child about the importance of proper hand-washing, especially when around people who appear sick. Also tell your child not to share toothbrushes or eating utensils with other children.
7.     Avoid close contact with others who are sick. If possible, keep your child away from children who are known to have tonsillitis or sore throat.
8.     Eat foods that are soft and easy to swallow.
9.     Your child may need surgery if he has chronic or recurrent tonsillitis. Surgery is also done if antibiotics are not getting rid of his tonsillitis.

Home remedies:
1.     Hot fomentation on the front of the neck for about two to three times during the day can help in decongestion.
2.     Camomile tea has enormous benefits and when made with honey and lemon can provide relief from the pain associated with tonsillitis.
3.     Another home remedy for tonsillitis is cutting a lemon into half and then pressing salt and black pepper into it. Heat the lemon and then suck on it till no juice is left
