Brief Answer:
Acute tonsillitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have seen all the reports. They show acute infection. It would be better if you can send me the pictures of your throat.

I would suggest to take tablet amoxicillin plus clavulinic acid 625 mg twice daily along with tablet diclofenac plus serratiopeptidase twice daily.
Tablet vitamin c once daily
Hexidine gargles
Take tablet paracetamol for fever.
Take all for 5 days.

All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
You are always welcome with any further questions.
Wish you get well soon.
Thanks and regards
