Our expert says:
Natie, the tonsils (mangels) are just structures in the back of the mouth/entrance to the throat and when they are infected it is called tonsillitis. When the whole throat is infected, it is called pharyngitis or a throat infection. They’re caused by the same organism and require the same treatment.
The antibiotic should do the job. Good luck.
