<full of self pity as timing is rubbish>

Will it run it's course itself, or do I need antibiotics?

depends

if you have pus on your tonsils then you will need ABs

both my kids get raging tonsillitis with pus :-/

I don't think I can see any pus <hopeful>

in that case, painkillers, warm drinks and rest if you can

obv, if it doesn't shift get checked out

Thanks rubyslippers

I seem to have had a mild-ish dose of tonsillitis, and whilst it's not over yet, I do feel a bit better <phew>
