Ibuprofen 600mgms 4 times a day. Drink plenty of fluids. Monitor the situation for 48 hours......you may not need antibiotics.

Not sure that it always needs antibiotics as I think it depends on whether it is viral or bacterial in origin. I could be wrong.
It is painful though, I know. See the GP as mentioned.
Just out of interest, how do you know you have tonsillitis?
Yeah...take some painkillers and drink some water.
NJ - you get white spots on the back of your throat, your glands swell, and you feel poorly.
Yes I know that, ummm. I am one of the world's leading authorities :-) on the disease, having suffered it at least twice a year until I had the damned things removed aged 21 (a procedure not recommended at such an advanced age).

There is a considerable difference btweeen tonsillitis and a sore throat and I just wondered how Angeletic had made her diagnosis.
I used to get it really bad as well. Painkillers and water wouldn't have solved anything!

Yay! my throat is better now! thank you all so much!
Daughter had her tonsils removed years ago. Still has problems which her present doctor says is tonsillitis.

She shouldn't have tonsillitis then.
