Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have tonsil pain which is leading to tonsillitis which is causing pain in throat and spreading it to ear, neck, jaw due to infection of swollen lymph nodes. I would suggest you to consult ENT Specialist as you will require thorough evaluation.You should take combination of antibiotic along with decongestants. You need anti-inflammatory medication as well. You should incorporate some lifestyle changes like avoid spicy, fried and oily food. Avoid cold beverages. Get adequate rest and do salt water gargles several times a day. Drink plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent dehydration. Drink Warm liquids like tea or warm water with honey. You should no smoke at all if you do. You can go for tonsillectomy as well after proper prescription by doctor.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
