If your Tonsils have been removed then there is no way your tonsils are infected. However you can be having Acute pharyngitis of throat infection. It would go away from regular warm salt water gargling, antibiotic treatment. Kindly visit your ENT Doctor for proper management. Avoid oral sex for now. Get tested for STDs as that can also take place in the throat.
