Tonsillitis - When to call a doctor


Most tonsillitis clear away soon and doesn’t require any medications. But it is advisable to seek medical attention in the following cases:

  • If you're unable to eat or drink due to the pain
  • If your symptoms are severe
  • If you have high fever
  • If your symptoms last longer than five days
  • If it hasn’t shown any signs of improvement after four or five days
  • If you have pus formed in the back of the throat
