Chronic enlarged tonsils and nasal discahrge, child 13

i
My daughter, since baby, gets sick with a cold all the time! She s now 13. As soon as she gets sick, she complains of her throat, i can feel enlarged tonsils and glands that are hard and big ro the touch.
Only once she had to take medication for tonsillitis. Otherwise they don t seem to get infected, just painful and swollen.
Sje aslo has constant sniffles even if not sick, or they say until the next cold. She does not blow her nose, it s not dripping, she seems to be swollwing it, days and night, with sniffles.
What can i give her?
I ve seen to the. Doctor who says she has large tonsils that all, but did not rally give me any answer. She constantlytakes throat lozenges. Winter and summer.
Can anyone recommend a remedy?

'used to be sick in car' are you referring to motion-sickness. What are the symptoms now
 
fitness 5 years ago
Motion sickness yes, and sensitive to the odour in the car.
She is not as carsick now but she still can be.

Sense of smell i belive normal
Post nasal drip yes!!! I guess that is why she has so mich sniffles but does not blow her nose

Enlarged tonsils. I think that is what i feel. They are always very big but bigger and painful when she gets sick. Had them checked, doctor says they are just veey big.

She does not show too much fear in general. I know she does not like insects for sure and got very scared one noght because an ant was crawling in her ear and now she is sometimes scared that insects are crawling in her ears when she sleeps. Otherwise she does not share very mich what she thinks etc.

She does not like to wear scarves for aure or turtle neck but she does but she does not say she does not like things aeound the neck.
Otherwise she likes very tight pants and t shirts. Never really com,ains of being cold actually evenmthoug winters in canada are cold.
I hope this helps.
