How to cure enlarged tonsils for kids under 5 without surgery. He is 4 on thw scale.
Hi, Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic. Enlarged tonsils are due to hypertrophy of tonsils during this age group or due to inflammation because of infection or allergy. As the age grows, there will be shrinking in the size of tonsils so that surgery may not be required. Tonsillitis can be treated with antibiotics. Hope I have answered your query. Regards.
