Q.

tonsilitus

Doc my daughter is 2yrs & 4mnths old. she is suffering for the past couple of months inflamed tonsilitus and my GP is recommending that it be removed as it really looked bad. My concern is her age, is she not too young for this operation?

Your daughter is not too young to have her tonsils removed if this is necessary. She should be seen by an ENT specialist.
