How do you treat the throat when you have tonsillitis?

Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils located right at the entrance to the throat.

Their main job is to hold back and quickly neutralise potentially dangerous particles that may be found in the air, water or food and that enter the oral cavity, as well as to alert the body about contracting an infection and the need to trigger the necessary immune reactions.

The tonsils filter out viruses, bacteria, fungi and minute particles of dust. Pathogenic micro-organisms can cause the inflammation of these valiant defenders of the oral pharynx, causing tonsillitis.

It is important to detect the signs of tonsillitis early on and consult a doctor. In spite of the fact that tonsillitis does not cause particularly severe pain in the throat, unpleasant symptoms, such as a sore throat, can last for a relatively long time. Other signs include: persistent reddening of the throat and a slightly raised temperature.

If treatment is not forthcoming, the illness can assume a chronic form, causing complications including: rheumatic disorders, various diseases of the respiratory organs, purulent conditions in the soft tissues, inflammation of the meninges, etc. Some serious complications can only be treated by surgical intervention, which is why it is very important to follow all the doctor's recommendations during the early stages of the illness and to use combined treatment.

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
