Tonsillitis?

yesterday I had asked a ? about strep. My son does have it, but, the doctor said his tonsils are red and swollen. Does that go along with strep or is that tonsillitis?

  • It goes along with strep, too. Tonsillitis just means "swelling of the tonsils". It is good that they know what is causing it . . . hopefully he'll be feeling better soon.
