Did you not send your child to school because of his/her swollen Tonsils? Many would say yes. Tonsillitis is not only a painful but a debilitating condition for a lot of people. A large number of kids are usually affected by the cold weather.

What is Tonsillitis?

Clinically, Tonsillitis is the inflammation of the Tonsils which is commonly quick in appearance.

What is the importance of having Tonsils?

Let us first understand what Tonsils are. Tonsils and Adenoids(Tonsils are in the throat whilst Adenoids are situated in the upper end of the throat behind the nose) are tissues which are similar in nature to the lymph nodes and are present in our throat that guard the path to the inside and preventing germs from infecting the airway. So let’s consider the throat as the gate and tonsils as the army. When the number of germs increases the size of the army (tonsils and adenoids) increase. Which means the individual soldier count (the White Blood Cells present in the tonsils and adenoids) increases. This is the immune response of the body which is good. However, in the process of doing good to the body, the swollen Tonsils gives rise to symptoms that are painful and difficult to cope with.

By now we must have understood that the tonsils are our army protecting the airway from harmful germs. So it is vital to have this tissue. As much as possible it is best to avoid the surgical removal of tonsils.

However, sometimes surgery is inevitable. Continuous fevers, recurrent infections, difficulty in breathing, and huge tonsils causing an obstruction in the airway (Kissing Tonsils) with huge pus pockets might require a surgery to relieve one’s symptoms.

Causes of Tonsillitis and Symptoms accompanying it

Most common cause of Tonsillitis is a viral infection but also can be due to Bacterial infection.

There are various symptoms that occur during tonsillitis that might be acute or chronic in nature:-

  • Swollen Tonsils with or without pus pockets
  • Sore throat
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Fever
  • Bad Breath
  • A runny nose, cough and other symptoms of cold
  • Hoarseness and / loss of voice
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty in breathing, noisy breathing or snoring

Taking care of the condition

  • Salt water gargle helps in bringing down the excess mucous and provides some relief
  • Throat sprays and lozenges reduce pain
  • Drinking warm liquids may ease the pain
  • Rest well
  • Avoid smoking or second-hand smoke to prevent throat irritation

Prevention is better than cure hence regular washing of hands is a must. Also keeping yourself distant from others if you have an infection will prevent them from contracting the disease.
