I've been on antibiotics three times this year for flu symptoms, my tonsils have been swollen since around Christmas time last year. I started feeling sick last night and tried to not make a big deal about it just take some OTC medicine and be done with it, well around 1pm today it got worse, I can't swallow anything and it hurts so bad to talk. They have told me several times if I get sick and my tonsils swell again they want to remove them, but they haven't gone down in several months! If they put me on antibiotics so many times in a row doesn't your body start to become immune to the medicine and it's not as effective? I'm not one to take medicine I'm huge on home remedies and figuring it out on my own before even thinking of calling a doctor. But this year I haven't been able to stay out of the docs office because every time I turn around I've caught another virus. If I go to the hospital instead can they just remove my tonsils and call it a day?
Does anyone have any home remedies to share for swollen tonsils, sore throat, stuff like that? I've tried everything I could think of.
