Are you able to send prescriptions?
Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

Tonsillitis could be recurrent if not treated properly with targeted treatment for the bacteria causing it. So you need to have a swab first before getting antibiotics.

We cannot give any prescription without doing full physical examination first. It could be some virus there in which case giving antibiotics will not help.
