Hello,

The lab results are normal based on the tonsil infection. I suggest to continue using the antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor. I also suggest to use anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I recommend to drink liquids and rest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
