  • Go see an ENT (ear/nose/throat) specialist.Tonsils may not do anymore that bring you infections if they dont function properly. I finally had mine taken out at age 35. After years of swollen lymphnodes (below in the throat) recurring infections and a constant strep case. The ENT said, wow, those babys are just harboring bacteria & viruses.
