Based on your information, it is likely your daughter has another tonsil infection.
This is the common cause of tonsil swelling.
Another possibility can be tonsil abscess.
Besides thsse, tumor is another possibility.
Tonsillar tumor is rare but should be considered.
It is better to see a ENT consultant and consider surgical removal of the tonsil given the recurrent infections.
You have worried me now regarding a tumor
That should be considered since the persistent swelling of one sided tonsil.
This is a small isk but should not be neglected given her scenario.
and recurrent infections are also indication for tonsillectomy
Ok , but she has no pain, sores on the tonsil and the GP thought it was hay fever, why would she be bunged up as well?
that is due to the cogestion and inflammation of the eustachian tubes connected to the throat from the ears.
Also sinus congestion is common.
Although tonsil pain was not there, infection can spread from the tonsils to the sinuses and ears
So it is more likely to be that than a tumor?
Thank you, sorry just a worrying mother! I have advised her to stop taking the antihistamines as they are making her tired, should I get her some non drowsy antihsitmanes from the chemist?
yes non drowsy loratadine or cetrizine will be better.
