I will be interested in hearing from others whose little ones have had ongoing tonsillitis. My ds who is nearly 2 had a terrible first year with tonsillitis then infected ears follow. The dr said if it remained the same in his second year we would get referred to the ENT clinic and so we have because just this year he has had it 8 times. It doesn't always turn into tonsilitis which is frustrating because antibiotics don't assist if it's viral and not bacterial so often he is sick for weeks. Tonsils are huge and red but no puss sometimes and other times it's tonsillitis. He recovers a lot quicker when it's tonsilitis and he has antibiotics. He often only has a few weeks of being well before getting sick again. It's like he never completely gets over it and bam it all starts again. So unfair on him being unwell alot of the time. Not sure if they will remove the tonsils this young but at least he will be in the system.
