You could try to gargle with dilute hydrogen peroxide regularly to clean up your tonsillar crypts but if it persists, use the practo app to search for an ENT Specialist who does LASER Surgeries who will vapourise about 2mm thickness of the surface of tonsil tissue which contains the infection. The heat generated by the LASER will automatically kill all germs in remaining tonsillar tissue. This procedure is much safer and the recovery period is also very rapid.
