If I have bronchitis and tonsillitis and a stuffed up nose could a humidifier help me at all?

In brief: Can't hurt

It won't hurt anything.
A cough medicine may help, prescription or otc if your doctor didn't give you one. Expect things to get better in 3-7 days with treatment.

Just make sure your humidifier is clean and has a fresh filter. Mayo clinic has a good handout http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/humidifiers/HQ00076

In brief: Humidifier

Yes a humidifier cam make you more comfortable but antibiotic therapy may be required to effectively eradicate the problem.
