Tonsillitis is a common illness among children, but adults and teenagers can get it as well. It is an infection at the back of your throat.
The symptoms of tonsillitis include:
- Sore throat

Tonsils usually last for 3 to 4 days. Your GP will prescribe lozenges, throat sprays, and antiseptic solutions to get rid of the tonsils.
