Tonsillitis Symptoms: Acute tonsillitis, that is less than two weeks' duration, leads to sore throat, swollen lymph glands in the neck, and fever. The usually cause is a virus, but bacterial infections may occur, but are much less frequent. Chronic tonsillitis is all of the above, but usually without the fever. Go see your doctor.
