Nasal allergy is a cause for upper respiratory tract infection.. Leading to tonsillitis.. Needs examination of nose and nasopharynx.. Apart from treatment with antibiotics like co-amoxivlav.. Add anti allergic like a combination of levocetrizine and montelukast.. And if needed intra nasal corticosteroids at bed time...

Causes of only dry cough are: Cough variant Asma, pertussis, HF, ACE inhibitors And post nasal drip. In your pt there is increased esonophil count with leucositisis with neutrophilia with relative lymphopenia with enlarged tonsil. Further investigation: IgE,R/E of stool,ASO titre, throat swab culture, EIA HIV1and2. Start treatment with : Romilast 10 mg -1tab daily in evening , Esiflow inhaler -2 puffx2 daily. Also add one antibiotic of your choice till the report of culture comes.
