Tonsillitis is a condition that is characterized by swelling of the tonsils and inflammation. Tonsils are part of the lymph nodes that are located in the back of the throat.
The main job of the tonsils is to prevent microbes to enter the human body. This results in some kind of infections from time to time.
The most common form of tonsillitis comes from the bacteria called streptococcus, and that is where the term comes from. If you consult your doctor, he/she will immediately prescribe you with antibiotics. If this condition is persistent or it frequently comes back, the doctor will be forced to perform a surgical procedure. However, this is not the best option because, without the tonsils, the microbes will be able to get inside your body in larger numbers.
If you are suffering from this condition, you will most likely experience the following symptoms:
- Painful or difficulties when swallowing
- Red tonsils with yellow or white spots
- Raspy voice
- Sore throat
- Bad breath
