Heavy breathing, tonsils red and drainage in throat. On Bromfed. Serious?

my daughter is four years old i took her to the doctor for heavy breathing . her pediatrician said her tonsils were red and swollen and she had a lot of drainage in the back of her throat . I am giving Bromfed. I am concerned about the breathing . She is still active and does not act as if she feels ill. I was wondering if iot could be something more serious?

HI I have gone through your mail I came to know that your three years old daughter is having chronically enlarged,swollen tonsils which may produce obstruction in respiration leading to heavy breathing.these tonsils are draining in throat which will also spread infection.I would like to suggest that prolong obstruction in upper airway (means area from nostril to larynx )is well known to develop COPD (chronic obsrtuctive pulmonary diseas ),which becomes a medical please get your child to be examined by your E.N.T.dctor and your family physician to prevent such complication.Thanks.
