What is Tonsillitis?

Tonsils are a couple of masses of tissues situated at the back of the throat which filter the germs and bacteria that try to enter the airways into lungs. They also defend the airways from infections by producing some anti-bodies that fight off these germs. Tonsillitis is an infection characterized by the inflammation of these Tonsils because of some bacteria and virus.

Tonsillitis can be acute (temporary) or a chronic (long-term) condition and requires immediate medical treatment.

Symptoms

People suffering from Tonsillitis will often experience the following symptoms

  • Swelling and inflammation of tonsils observed at the back of the throat
  • Reddening of the tonsils area

  • Ear ache
  • Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain (mostly observed in children)
  • Fever with chills
  • Headache and loss of appetite

Tonsillitis can be a recurring phenomenon or long-term disease. In such cases, patients would frequently suffer from some or other throat infections and can have severe trouble in breathing as pus is accumulated along the airways.
