In brief: Correct antibiotics
Stay well hydrated and take your antibiotics.
If you were not put on a high enough dose or if the antibiotic is not ideal then it may not respond as quickly. My favorite antibiotic for tonsillitis is clindamycin. If you are getting worse or not improving call your doctor.
