Best Ways to Deal With Tonsillitis in Kids

Best Ways to Deal With Tonsillitis in Kids

Tonsillitis, in the easiest terms, is the swelling of tonsils in our throat that is accompanied by symptoms like throat pain, difficulty in swallowing/ drinking, altered voice and fever etc.

As in the case of most infections, the occurrence of tonsillitis is more common in children due to relatively lower immunity and habits that invite infections. Let's take a look at the first line of defence when you have a cranky child with swollen tonsils.

1. Make your child gargle with salty warm water: This treatment is most helpful in any infection in the mouth. Add half teaspoonful of salt to a glass of warm water and make the child gargle with the mixture as many times in the day as possible (to a maximum of 5 times). Continue till the condition prevails.

Make sure the child spits out the water and not drinks it.

2. Antibiotics: Consult the ent specialist and have the antibiotics if it is a bacterial cause as per the doctor. Take the alternative treatment prescribed in case of other causes. The entire course of medication should be completed even if the kid gets better sooner to eliminate all traces of bacteria.

3. Painkiller/numbing lozenges: Painkillers that are prescribed by the doctor can be given to ease the pain. Same is the case with lozenges but care should be taken that he/she should not have too many of these.

4. Allow him/her to take rest: It does help in a betterment of the condition!

5. Give warm (not hot) soothing food: Soup, ginger honey mixture, ginger tea can help soothe the inflamed tonsils in most cases. The condition, more often than not, gets better within 7-10 days.

As you said your baby has thalassemia minor or trait. It will not affect the baby in a major way, she is going to have only slightly lower hemoglobin then peers. She may not be able to donate blood. And she carries a risk of having Thalassemia major offspring if married to a guy with thalassemia trait. Nothing else.

My daughter is unable to suck milk from my breast as there is less milk please hlp me how I increase my breast milk.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Eat healthy food and stop worrying. If child is growing properly as depicted in normal growth charts and if she is playful, there is no reason to think of inadequate breast secretion. You did not mention age and weight of the child. It is difficult to address your query based only on your perception.

Bottle feeding harmful n is discouraged. Use spoon to feed top milk. Breastfeeding maybe continued after cracked nipple tt. Start semi solids, if not yet started. Right time to start is 6 months now he is 8 months.

I suggest to continue breastfeeding gradually increasing interval but decreasing duration of feeding. Though it is advisable to continue breastfeeding up to the age of 2 years then withdraw gradually.

The ression behind such kind of behaviour can be copping of family members who behaves like this or if child has started beliving that should be rewarded. So you have to find out why your child behave like this.

Hello there, Wheezing is a common symptom in children with cold. But it should be evaluated by a Pediatrician. Depending on clinical condition and history, your child may require further oral medications or nebulizations. Keep nasal passage clear and use normal saline nasal drops liberally. Keep baby well hydrated.
