Q.

Tonsils

My 2 year old child is permanently on antiobiotics since he turned 1 because of tonsils and breathing problems, etc. Do only children that are at daycare centres get tonsil problems?

No any child can get tonsil problems, but children are exposed to many more infections in daycare, which exacerbates the problem.
