How long will it take for swollen tonsils to go back to normal size after having swollen tonsils for nearly 3weeks now? I am currently taking an antibiotic also
Once the infection is cleared up, it takes about 3 days for the tonsils to shrink to normal. Sometimes though, they don;t shrink back completely to normal, large pits form in them and food gets stuck leading to recurrent infections. At that point, its probably better to take them out.
