Thank you for your query.
1. If you have a history of more than 5-6 attacks of tonsillitis per year over 2-3 years and if you have anterior pillar congestion, enlarged tonsils and palpable non tender Jugulo-Digastric (JD) lymph nodes, you have Chronic Tonsillitis
is an option in such a situation.
3. You must understand that a tonsillectomy will reduce the number of attacks but not eliminate them as the throat contains a lot of lymphoid tissue (such as the lingual , tubal tonsils, pharyngeal bands and so on) besides the tonsils which cannot be removed.
4. You should see an ENT Specialist
. Meanwhile try gargling with medicated gargles such as diluted Betadine
. Avoid foods that worsen the symptoms. Avoid cold, spicy and sour food. Turmeric in warm milk at night just before retiring to bed is a good remedy.
