Our expert says:
It is highly unlikely that you would get tonsillitis while on antibiotics. Where is the swollen gland? if under the jawline, it is a lymphgland ( this can also be caused by viral infections that will not react to antibiotics) If above the jawline it could be mumps or infection of the parotid salivary gland. Cat scratch disease can also cause swollen lymph glands and it may only happen up to 2 months after infection, so let your doctor know as they may want to do a needle biopsy of the affected gland. Erythromycin would cover most common bacterial infections that can cause tonsillitis.
