Throat Problem
My son has outgrowths on both sides of his tonsil. This has been there since his birth and we have consulted many doctors about it and they all said that it will go away in a few years on its own. He does not have any problem with it. He swallows, speaks and shouts just fine. But every time i see it i get worried. He will be 6 years old this May and the problem has not diminished at all. Please give me an insight of what can be done.

If the problem is persistent and he is getting recurrent they infections its better to opt for surgery I.e tonsillectomy...Drink plenty of water,eat soft foods like cooked cereal, mashed potatoes, soft fruits, yogurt and soft-cooked eggs...give adequate rest to your body..Avoid spicy foods or acidic foods.
