4 -yr old with swollen tonsils, no other symptomsMy son's tonsils are very swollen, but not touching. They are not red or inflamed and he has no illness or fever at all.
Tonsils began swelling about two months ago at the exact same time he went to the dentist and had to have a very infected back tooth removed and another capped. He was put under general anethesia to do this. Also, about two weeks before the surgery he was started on fluoride pills.
Since the surgery his tonsils have gotten progressively larger. His doctor says they need to come out.
I don't want to remove his tonsils, but they are starting to affect his sleep. He now has beginning signs of obstructive sleep apnea.
I have stopped the fluoride and am giving him "Throat and Tonsil Dr." from Native Remedies which has: Gelsinium 6C, Mer. Sol. 6C, Belladonna 30C, Gallium aperine, Salvia officinalis, lactose; 2 tablets, 3X a day, under the tongue.
Also, his father has obstructive sleep apnea, and after having literally everything in his throat removed, sleeps with a CPAP machine.
Should I just give in and remove the tonsils and adnoids? or do you think there is something to shrink these glands? I know that OSA will begin to affect his behaviour and learning, so I don't want this to continue.
Thank you and God bless you, Beth

Do NOT have them operated on, this will simply shift the focus of the problem to a new area.
Did he have any antibiotics when he had the tooth problem. If so that may be where the trouble started .
