longstanding infection of the tonsil is common in children.
do not worry, finish the course of antibiotic.
if she has no symptoms then there is nothing to worry.
if inspite of all treatment if the tonsil infection persists and it starts affecting her day to day activities then you can consider getting the tonsils surgicaaly removed.
