Tonsils inflamed: The throat infection may have been incompletely treated, leaving a low population of bacteria within the spaces or crypts of the tonsils, and after the antibiotics are no longer a threat, repopulation can occur. This is how chronic tonsillitis develops. Chronic inflammation of tonsils is common in those who have deep pockets or cryptic spaces in the tonsils.
