Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for asking on HealthCareMagic. Many children suffer from tonsillitis and unless the episodes of infection are quite recurrent (occurring more than 3-5 times each year), it does not require surgery. It generally subsides with increase in age.
Giving steam inhalation or nebulisation might give some relief.
Herbaforce Tonzolyt should not have any issues with safety but I am not sure whether your baby needs it. During such episodes, using some antiallergic like levocetirizine for a few days should provide relief.

I hope that helps. Feel free to revert back in case of further queries if any.

my son started cefalexin for tonsillitis and despite having had four doses still running a pyrexia of 39c. Paracetamol and ibuprofen (alternately) only bringing temp down to 38c. Is it normal to still run temps after 24hrs of antibiotics? He is ??sensitive to penicillin hence why he is on cefalexin.

Hello, I have really swollen tonsils. I do not feel sick. I had a fever about a week ago that lasted 1 day. I felt congested but the next day I felt fine. I still have swollen tonsils. The right tonsil actually looks like it has torn. I normally have a hole there, but the hole looks like it has torn to almost triple its size. What can this be?
