Dear Mum Marl
Your daughter is suffering from recurrent bouts of tonsillitis, now possibly caused by chronic infection in the tonsil itself. At her age, the tonsils have no function at all, and she is now moving into the agegroup of patients that may suffer from complicated tonsillitis, the most common being a peri-tonsillar abcess. (Quincy abcess). This has the potential to case mayor problems, such as a neck abcess, etc.
At her age the bouts usually become more severe, and I would suggest you consult an ENT surgeon for an examination and consultation. The post nasal drip is not helping, although that is not necessarily the cause. I would most likely recommend a tonsillectomy, but you should consult your ENT for an opinion.
