enlarged tonsils for over 2 months
Nalugirl posted:
My 6 year old has had enlarged tonsils for over 2 months. Back in May, he had strep for the first time. He had a round of abx and it seemed everything was fine. Since July, his tonsils have been enlarged. Two strep tests at different times(both rapid and the delayed) were all negative. He has no other symptoms. He has started coughing, though. ENT recommended a sleep apnea test. Recently, I had him checked for Lyme's disease. That was negative. His other blood work was normal. I tried eliminating dairy for a short period with no change. Same thing with gluten. What could be causing the enlarged tonsils?
