Ouch indeed. I've had tonsillitis before and I don't remember taking anything but it wasn't too bad. I got a week of school though :). It lasted one week but I didn't need to get them surgically removed.

yeah i experienced that too and it brought me discomfort at work. Tonsillitis usually begins with sudden sore throat and painful swallowing.and beware it is contagious. it can be passed on by kissing. hehehe. based from my readings, tonsillitis usually spreads from person to person by contact with the throat or nasal fluids of someone who is already infected.Treatment for tonsillitis depends on whether it was caused by a virus or bacteria. If the tonsillitis was caused by strep bacteria (streptococci), the doctor will prescribe antibiotics. If the tonsillitis was caused by a virus, your body will fight off the infection on its own. However, medication can be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms.
