Causes and Symptoms of Tonsillitis

MBBS, MS-ENT, DNB (ENT) -, DOHNS(LONDON) -
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Gurgaon
Causes and Symptoms of Tonsillitis

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of your throat. The tonsils acts as a defensive mechanism in the body as they prevent the body from infections. This is a contagious condition and can occur at any age. It is widely prevalent among school going kids.

Tonsillitis may be classified into two types:

  1. Chronic tonsillitis: This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of bad breath and tenderness in the lymph nodes.
  2. Recurrent tonsillitis: This is a form of acute tonsillitis which repeats itself over a year.

Causes: Tonsils prevent various virus and bacteria from entering the body through the mouth by producing antibodies. The tonsils, however, may become vulnerable to these infections. A virus that causes common cold or the bacteria that causes strep throat may result in tonsillitis. The most common cause of this disorder is the strep bacteria. School going children are especially vulnerable to this disorder because they are most prone to various infections.

The various viruses that may cause tonsillitis are:

  1. Enterovirus
  2. Herpes simplex virus
  3. Epstein-Barr virus
  4. Influenza virus
  5. Adenovirus
  6. Parainfluenza virus

Common symptoms: 
The various symptoms of tonsillitis are

  1. Swallowing difficulties
  2. A sore throat
  3. The sore throat may result in bad breath
  4. You may experience fever and chills
  5. Pain in the head, ear and stomach
  6. You may experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw
  7. Swollen tonsils with possible redness
  8. Changes in voice
  9. Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics and in some cases, tonsillectomy. The antibiotics help in getting rid of the bacterial infection. Surgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature. It is important that you drink fluids and restrict smoking to prevent tonsillitis.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

I have been suffering from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica and chronic sinus problem of streptococci.

Sinus problem is of frontal or maxillary affecting right eye which becomes red and itchy, painful. I am taking kali bichrome, hydrastis, echinacea. Please help me advising medicines for longer use.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Regarding sinusits main symptoms for maxillary sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

It could be due to gastritis or indigestion. Eat smaller meals frequently than heavy food. Avoid overeating. Avoid carbonated drinks and spicy food. Never gulp the food and chew it properly. Take antacid tablet 1 before breakfast for 3 days. Probiotics might be helpful to you. Hope this helps u.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Are you feeling irritated because of snoring problem? Do you want to stop snoring? The problem of snoring is very common and it happens because their airway is in a place so as to do not permit finest air flow.

Stop Snoring?

Are you feeling irritated because of snoring problem? Do you want to stop snoring? The problem of snoring is very common and it happens because their airway is in a place so as to do not permit finest air flow. Snoring is source by the lessening of the muscles in your flexible palate (top of your mouth,) throat and tongue. The tissues in your throat can obtain so calm so as to the partly chunk your airway plus shake as air rush past.



How to Stop Snoring

Remember that, if airways are narrower, there is more intense vibration plus the louder the snore. So, in this write up I have given you the best tips to stop snoring.

Best Tips to Stop Snoring:

There are many natural ways that help to stop the problem of snoring and best of them are as follows;

1. Throat Exercises:

Frequently pronounce certain vowel sounds plus curling the tongue in exact ways can support muscles in the upper respiratory tract also thus decrease snoring.
Put the tip of your tongue at the back your top front teeth. Glide your tongue backwards for 3 minutes a day.
Perform each vowel (a-e-i-o-u) out noisy for 3 minutes a few times a day.
By mouth open, shift jaw to the right plus hold for 30 seconds. Replicate on left side.
Seal your mouth and squeeze your lips. Grasp for 30 seconds.

2. Drop Weight:

If you gain weight in the region of your neck, it presses the internal diameter of the throat, building it extra likely to collapse throughout sleep, activate snoring.
The additional that blocks your throat the extra air is episodic as it flow over; make the vibrations which effect in the sound of snoring.

3. Alter Your Sleep Position:


Laying on your back make the foundation of your tongue as well as soft palate fall down to the back wall of your throat, cause a vibrating sound throughout sleep.
Resting on your side might help to stop this. A whole pillow that supports your complete body offers an easy fix. It allows you to keep sleeping on your side plus can create a dramatic disparity.

4. Adjust your Pillows:

Elevating your head can help open up airways and make breathing easier-but if your head is too high, your airways can get constricted and they arises snore.
If you have a pillow that is too thick, or you sleep on multiple pillows, try adjusting the height. Not too fluffy and not too flat is important when it comes to what you rest your head on.
Finding a pillow that keeps your head and neck in a proper position is worth taking the time to do to help you breathe right.

5. Sleeping Position:

Resting on your side is a successful method to stop snoring logically. Doing so can assist to stop the relaxation the tongue as of relaxing to the back wall of the throat.
Extra sleeping positions for example sleeping on your stomach otherwise propping-up your head can set strain on your neck ensuing in neck pain.

6. Nasal Clogging:

Clear nasal passages via a Neti pot, an over-the-counter saline spray otherwise a humidifier.
Nasal decongestants are one more option as they get better breathing plus permit you to breathe extra easily both throughout the day and whereas sleeping.

7. Keep away from Alcohol:

Alcohol plus sedatives decrease the resting tone of the muscles in the rear of your throat; make it more likely you’ll snore.

8. Stay Hydrated:

Once body are dehydrated our nasal secretion turn into thick, from time to time making breathing extra difficult all through the day plus this can cause snoring at night.


Thanks

Hi nose bleed in kids is generally not due to some major disease, it is more often itself a problem sometimes related to minor injuries of nose and sometimes due to excess heat of weather. Consulting homoeopath is the best option for permanent cure of this problem and the course will last- 2-3 months.

Hi kindly get an impedance and a pure tone audiometry done will help to know if there is any fluid collection inside the ear. Also you can do steam inhalation twice a day for few days. Also can use nasal decongestant drops 2 drops three times a day for few days. Once you get those tests done share will help you further.
