Our expert says:
Tonsils may be removed in cases of recurrent tonsillitis. It seems that your daughter might be a candidate for a tonsillectomy, but she needs to be examined by an ENT surgeon. In the case your one year old, we recommend grommets after three infections in four months, or four infections in six months. It is important what happens to the ears inbetween attacks, as persistant effusions will also be an indication for grommets. She will need an ENT assesment as well.
