hello
don't worry about the size of ur tonsils.
it is important that congestion (redness) due to infection should be controlled .
that u have acheived .
size will come down in few days .
if the size of ur tonsils still getting bigger or causing some difficuilty in breathing, then u need to think of surgery .
but for a patient attending to my clinic ,
I would suggest to wait and watch
but u can just do salt water gargling twice daily for a week.
thank u
I will be happy for any further questions regarding this problem.
