Swollen tonsils, 2nd day taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) , tonsils still swollen, same size. Was i prescribed the correct meds? What should I do next?

Have swollen tonsils form past 6 months been to docs have got all blood work and culture done everything is negative and I have a lymph node in neck??

What are you asking?: I would not be further concerned, unless the tonsils are causing you to have sleep apnea. I'm going to assume the lymph node is not massively enlarged. Most of your friends have at least one similar node. Your tonsils and your big lymph node are your defense troops protecting you from bacterial invaders. Be thankful for good health and get on with your life. ...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.
