I have had both too. Step throat is caused by a bacteria and is usually more painful. Tonsilitis on the other hand is inflamation of the tonsils located at the back of the throat. :)

So is strep throat what happens when you got colds for a few days and it goes down your throat overtime, maybe from when you're sleeping? I hear this happens. It causes irritation, maybe infection of the throat. I've had this already for a few times.

strep throat is bacterial... caused by strep bacteria, hence the name:)

tonsilitis is inflamation of the tonsils.
