I've been to a doctor before for swollen tonsil pain and tonsil stones. He said it was an infection and prescribed antibiotics. They didn't work at all. The doctor hardly even checked me. Now about 2 months later it hurts more than ever. I can feel how swollen and tender my right tonsil is just by lightly running my fingers under my ear and jawline. I don't even have to press on it. I'm also getting phlegm. I don't know what to do. I'm convinced I need a tonsillectomy but my parents won't get me checked out at all. I also think i have tonsilitis. Please help?
