Very Swollen Uvula

Hi, I'm a 23 year old female and had my tonsils taken out when I was 17 because of abscesses on my tonsils and repeated tonsillitis. Up until this year I have had no problems with my throat but now every time I get a cold my uvula gets extremely swollen to the point where it is difficult to breathe. I got a cold about 3 weeks ago and now have what looks like white puss pockets on my uvula and it's very swollen, I had been put on two different types of antibiotics that are not helping. Will I have to have my uvula removed like my tonsils or is there something else they can do?
