Left tonsil swollen itchy throat int for years. Many allergies. If wheezing and take albuterol, tonsil subsides. Allergy, asthma, tonsil connection?

After you take albuterol, your hyperventilation decreases, resulting in less dry air irritating your mouth. See an allergist/immunologist to improve your condition. ...Read more
