In brief: Yes
Tonsillitis may be viral in origin.
Therefore the patient's immune system will result in a natural resolution of the sore throat. Be patient. In adults, particularly, most upper respiratory infections are of viral origin and an antibiotic may be necessary in only 2% of cases. Be patient, and if you get worse after 5 days or not better in 10 days, empirically, an antibiotic should be used.
