Sore Throat

A 55 year old friend has been having bad sore throat for months and hospital visits found that he had no fever and not much sputum, either. The areas around and on his tonsils got inflammation and swollen, making it hard for the patient to talk. In-depth CT scan did not reveal much. Antibiotics worked, but not very long as the symptoms re-surfaced soon afterwards. He has taken many kinds of antibiotics and herbal medicines, both can only easy to certain extent. He took physical therapy also which worked somewhat in reducing the swollen area.

He seeks advice from doctors and patients who are familiar with this.
