Infections: The removal of tonsils does not end your risk of either strep throat or any of the other causes of throat infection. At best, it limits the intensity of your pain. The other tissues of the throat remain vulnerable to infection.Your ear may be infected or showing pressure as part of a combined infection of both areas.
