Suggest treatment for swollen tonsils

Okey, i was horribly sick for on and off with flu. After that i had horrible sinus infection. I got rid of everything with antibiotics penicillin. Two weeks passed i went on a trip. When i can home randomly i was brushing teeth and i notices super enlarged tonsils on my right side and little bit the left with white spots. It didn t hurt and i didn t have a fever. Went to the doctor he told me it can be strap throat text came negative but he still put me on antibiotics. White fuz cleared out but i did gurgled salt,natural propolis with honey, and echinacea. But the tonsil still didn t go away and also i have on my neck running enlarged gland. So next time i went to the doctor he prescribed another type of antibiotic. It went down just by little but still there enlarged tonsils. I feel like antibiotics are not working . What should i do and ask my doctor next time i visit i feel like they have no idea what they doing. Also when i wake up i have dry mouth and aches around my neck. There are days its better and days wen its bad. I have no energy but i had that for a while now. I feel always tired. I dunno what to do. Can you please help next time i am at the doctors what questions i should ask about this?

If you have pain while swallowing and constant symptoms, you can go for elective tonsillectomy. It can done as day care procedure like laser tonsillectomy.
I don't know your age,but its seen frequently in teenagers. Avoid cold water,ice creams. Do saline gargles regularly.
