No: First you need a diagnosis. Lymph nodes enlarge when they are working to contain an infection or a tumor, but this is not always responsive to antibiotics, particularly if due to a virus. See a doctor and have this examined. You could probably wait to see if this went down and became less tender with time before going to an er. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lymphnode on armpit randomly started hurting and causing bruising. with body aches and swollen tonsils. Worried I could have hiv.
Doubt HIV but see MD: HIV rarely causes enlargement or inflammation of a single lymph node. Your other symptoms go along with several viral infections, such as infectious mono and others. Acute HIV can do things like this, but is rare compared with other possibilities, especially if not at obvious high risk (IV drug use, sex with gay/bi men, etc). Easy bruising could be serious. See MD ASAP, but probably not HIV. ...Read more

Infectious or not?: If you have strep tonsillitis, it is recommended you receive antibiotics. Swollen tonsils can be acute (sudden onset, usually from infection, rarely from tumors) or chronic (usually just someone with large tonsils). If there is some pain, you can start with saline gargles or using a "water pik" to rinse out the tonsil crypts. Sometimes oral steroids (rx) can help. See an ENT if they stay large. ...Read more
Get diagnosis: I firmly believe that swollen tonsils require a diagnosis because at age 46, the diagnosis could range from nothing at all to chronic tonsillitis to lymphoma. You should see an ENT doctor. In regard to home remedies, of course, you could gargle with an antiseptic, saline, but swelling of the tonsils mean lymphocyte hyperplasia (increase in number) and that requires a diagnosis. ...Read more
Depends: It depends on why your tonsils are large. If your tonsils are enlarged suddenly due to a bacterial infection (tonsillitis) then you may need antibiotics. If your tonsils are always large even when you are not sick, you could have them removed if you have sleep apnea. If only one tonsil is large, you should be seen by an ENT surgeon. ...Read more

Possibly: Inasmuch as both laryngitis and tonsillitis may be caused by the same virus, the two problems can occur together. But because the tissues are not exactly adjacent to each other, the two problems may co-exist because of the same etiology. In general, however, each one, laryngitis and tonsillitis are separate problems and laryngitis frequently occurs in the absence of tonsillitis and visa- versa. ...Read more
URI: An upper respiratory infection (URI) 9which includes tonsillitis) is either viral or bacterial.

Tricky: without an exam, I can only give general information. Depends on how much they are swollen.

My tonsils are huge, and the doctor doesn't know what I have. Possible causes of swollen tonsils?
What is it? I have swollen tonsils with white spots. I get them often. Is there a way to prevent it without having them removed?
Tonsils "stones": This sounds like what we call tonsils stones - impacted mucus and food debris that gets colonized with bacteria. Simple measures first: treat underlying acid reflux even if you don't have typical symptoms - try some over the counter antacids. Treat nasal drainage. You can do this with nasal steroids or nasal saline washes like ChitoRhino. And simple salt water gargles. Try that for about 6 weeks. ...Read more
