Depends on cause: Treatment of tonsillitis depends on the cause and severity of the inflammation. A doctor will take a history, perform an examination and order appropriate tests to determine the cause and recommend a treatment.

Your physician: The best place is your regular medical doctor. If they are not available then there may be an urgent care walk-in clinic in your neighborhood. You need to be evaluated by a doctor to make sure that it is not some other problem instead. Do not self medicate, this can mask a problem and make it more difficult to treat.
