I've been getting tonsillitis on and off for about 6 months. Each time I've gone to to GP and have been given antibiotics. In the past I have wanted the antibiotics as I had a baby and toddler and we were sleep deprived etc and I just wanted a quick fix. This time I am no longer sleep deprived, am feeling stronger and I would rather avoid taking more antibiotics (I've had 8 courses in 9 months, 4 for tonsillitis and 4 for C/S scar infection).
Does anyone know do you have to have antibiotics for tonsilitis or will my body fight it off? And at what point do they suggest removing your tonsils?
