In brief: Drainage

Drainage and infection cause tonsil enlargement.
Adenoids too. Little ones have small sinuses and tend to have constant drainage which causes tonsillar hypertrophy.

In brief: Agree, see Allergist

See dr. Mutnik's answer for the cause of the adenoid swelling.
Now for the question about the allergist. Chronic drainage, asthma and acid reflux can all be caused by allergies to environmental exposures or to foods. An allergist can help you find out his triggers for the asthma and determine what allergies are affecting him or her. This may help you to prevent her/him from getting sick.
