i always hear that not finishing your medication for tonsillitis will lead to heart conditions. is this true or are doctors just making this up to make the patient finish the meds?

its very rare for tonsilitis to get complicated because your tonsils will get back to normal even without treatment. in very rare cases, it can cause liver failure or even rheumatic heart fever.

not continuing any antibiotic medication is dangerous because not all the bacteria might be dead making the disease come back again.

did not know that it could cause a heart disease. but tonsilitis is a childhood disease. i remember taking erethromycin for this.
