He said that my tonsils were inflammed and I have a little acid reflux damage. What can I do to soothe the pain. Also I slept with a fan directly in my face last night

Hi and welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
The inflamed tonsils could be bacterial or viral. If fever is associated you can go with a pencillin shot. If you are allergic to pencillin other antibiotics like roxid 150mg two times daily for five days can be used. To alleviate the pain Dolo 650mg can be used. Salt water gargling, avoiding cool liquids or foods- like icecreams, ice cakes and ice water, taking hot beverages like coffee, tea, soups will relieve the symptoms.
Acid reflux can be managed by Omeprazole, pantoprazole or rabiprazole. If still the problem persists please consult your GP.
Hope this is helpful to you.
Regards
