Treatment of tonsilitis depends on the cause. It can be caused by either bacteria (streptococcus) or by virus, e.g. herpes simplex, sinusitis etc.
Bacterial infection is more dangerous if you delay treatment because it can cause rheumatic fever, glomerulonephritis (a kidney infection) and scarlet fever etc. It can be treated using antibiotics and pain killers but take full doze pliz.
Viral infection usually goes away on its own hence antibiotics won't help. Still, you need to use home therapies/remedies, e.g. guggling warm salty water, enough rest, sucking lozenges, painkillers etc.
Now that you don't know the cause of your tonsilitis visit a doctor for a test. Don't delay—quick recovery.
Btw stress can cause it bcoz..stress lowers the immunity system of the body and tonsils helps in fighting diseases so if weakened by stress they get inflamed..try omega-three supplements to boost your immunity
