In brief: URI

An upper respiratory infection (URI) 9which includes tonsillitis) is either viral or bacterial.
The former will improve in time with supportive measures (rest, cough meds, fluids, etc), but the later may require antibiotics. See a dr. To get properly diagnosed and treated, best wishes.
