Thanks for your query.
Repeated respiratory infections are commonly seen in children which could be infective or allergic in nature.
AS you mentioned your child is having fever with tonsillitis ,get him examined by a pediatrician as he may need a course of antibiotic.
Give acetaminophen for fever control.
Give plenty of fluids,lukewarm water will be soothing.
Avoid all kind of fried and junk food,

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.

It seems your child having recurrent upper respiratory tract infections because of frquent exposure to the viral or bacterial infections.
At present your child might be having follicular tonsillitis with phryngitis with your description.
Consult your Peiditrician for the examination of throat and tonsills and for the appropriate treatment.
The repeated infections of upper respiratory tract are common till the age of 6 years.
Hope I have answered your query.
