Our expert says:
Lester, the tonsils might be to blame, but the best would be to have a throat swab taken. This will tell you what the causative organism is and then you can take the appropriate antibiotic (if indicated). If the infection then returns, you need to see an ear, nose and throat specialist and maybe have your tonsils removed. Good luck.
