Warm salt water: Have him gargle with warm salt water frequently. If they are painful you can use chloraseptic throat spray to ease the pain. Tonsils aren't routinely removed anymore unless they are chronically inflamed and the person routinely suffers from sore throat, upper respiratory infections, or sleep apnea. Good luck.
