If you are having recurrent attacks of tonsillitis then you must go for tonsillectomy i.e., surgical removal of tonsils. But before going for surgery you should take a good course of antibiotics and anti inflamatory and decongestant like Amoxicillin n clauvulanic acid , gargles. If prblm persists then go to ent surgeon nearby for tonsillectomy...
