Home/Throat Pains/Tonsillitis


Tonsils are the lymphoid tissues that are present in the back of your throat.

Tonsils form part of the immune system. Tonsils act as filters, trapping bacteria or viruses that could otherwise enter your airways and cause infection. They also make antibodies to fight infection.

But sometimes, they get overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses. This can make them swollen and inflamed.

Symptoms :
  • A sore throat and pain when swallowing
  • Red and swollen tonsils with pus-filled spots
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Pain in the ears and neck
  • Tiredness

Some people may develop tonsil stones, which doctors also call tonsilloliths or tonsillar calculi. A tonsillolith is a calcified buildup of material in the crevices of the tonsils.

Precautions :
  • Drinking plenty of fluids will prevent the throat from drying out and becoming more uncomfortable. Preferably warm drinks.
  • Gargling with saltwater might reduce discomfort.
  • Dry air can irritate the throat. Taking steam can help.
  • Avoiding irritants, such as tobacco and smoky locations, can help a person reduce symptoms.
