Last week, I had tonsillitis. It got healed. After a few days, it got started again on the right tonsil and it got worsened. Right now, I have problems in swallowing and talking. I also have pain in my right ear and I can barely sleep at night. Sometimes, I get swelling on the inside of the throat and I had some white things similar to pus. I treated it by doing saltwater gargling every day and night with lozenges. I got fever once due to it. This has been happening for a week and I have difficulty in swallowing my foods. Please give your opinion. How to reduce the pain? I want to eat my normal food as I am taking only soups and water. I cannot talk comfortably. Please help.

As you are having acute tonsillitis, you can take the following medications. You can take tablet Amoxiclav 625 mg (Amoxicillin with Clavulanic acid) three times a day for seven days. You can take tablet Paracetamol 500 mg with Ibuprofen 400 mg one tablet three times a day for two days when you have pain. You can take tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg one tablet at night for seven days. You can do gargling with Betadine 1% 10 ml in 10 ml warm water three times to five times a day. Avoid having cold, spicy, and oily foods. Do steam inhalation every day. This will help you definitely.
