You get a monospot test done to rule out infectious mononucleosis
. It is negative get tonsillectomy
done. You will find some relief after that. But, remember if you are having chronic pharyngitis
, then your throat discomfort will continue even after tonsillectomy. You should follow other set of medications for that. As of now try drinking plenty of warm water, do povidone iodine
throat gargles 3-4 times/day after food. If you are having any gastric problems please get appropriate medications for that.
Any more doubts you are welcome.
