Dentist 's  Response
Malodour or Halitosis is due to various reasons like poor oral hygiene, dental caries, diabetis, Tonsilitis, liver disorder, gastric disorders, consumption of alcohol, foods like garlic and onion tobacco chewing etc . You have tonsilitis which could be the reason for your problem. Consult an ENT specialist for the problem. Get your self examined by a dentist to determine if you have any problems in your oral cavity.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Enlarged tonsils are definitely associated with bad breath or halitosis. You need to consult an ENT Surgeon as soon as possible to get yourself checked and treated. It could later cause difficulty swallowing, frequent attacks of tonsillitis as well. It may be best to get it removed but after thorough checkup of possible causes. Eat soft, bland, cool diet. Avoid hard, rough food which ca injure tonsils.
