I have had swollen tonsils for about 4 to 5 months now. It all started when I got a nasty cold that lasted over a month and I thought afterwards it would go away but they continued to stay. They don't hurt but 3 months after my cold my throat is starting to hurt again. They don't have any types of spots on them and one is half way across my throat the other is also swollen but a ENT doctor called it a "innie". He prescribed me strong antibiotics which did absolutely nothing and also tested me for mono and strep. Both tested negative but he never told me what it was. I am 19 years old and would just like to know what it could possibly be.
