The treatment of acute adenotonsillitis includes:
Increased oral intake
The standard treatment for streptococcal tonsillitis is a 10–14 day course of penicillin V.
This regimen should be continued for at least 7 days to avoid late complications (see below).
Macrolides or oral Cephalosporins can be used in patients allergic to penicillin. Analgesics are also administered for pain relief.
