Types And Treatment Of Tonsillitis!

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of the throat. 

It is mere * myth * that the tonsils acts as a defensive mechanism in the body as they prevent the body from infections. Tonsillitis can occur at any age. It is widely prevalent among school going kids as they get exposed to the different environment for the first time.

With age advances frequency of attacks reduces because the body gains immunity after each episode.

Tonsillitis may be classified into two types: 

  1. Chronic tonsillitis: when frequency and duration of acute attacks increases. This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of throat pain fever occasionally ear ache off and on also known as acute on chronic illness
  2. Acute tonsillitis: This is a form of acute infection which usually doesn't recur but may set once or so. 

A virus or bacteria that causes common cold 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.

Common symptoms: 

The various symptoms of tonsillitis are 

  • Swallowing difficulties 
  • Sore throat 
  • Bad breath 
  • Fever and chills 
  • A headache, ear ache, and stomach ache 
  • May experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw 
  • Swollen tonsils with possible redness 
  • Change in voice when tonsil such enlarged - hot potato voice.
  • Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics in acute cases and in some resistant chronic cases, operation tonsillectomy is indicated . Surgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature and recurrence is more than 3 times per year or a child fails to thrive . 

This operation is very simple now a days with new technologies.

Most dreaded complications of tonsillitis is the same bacteria attacks heart kidney and small joints. Patient may get rheumatic fever , joint pain and nephritis. Therefore it should not be neglected. 

It is important that you drink fluids and restrict smoking and alcohol to prevent tonsillitis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

Hi. I am 23 yrs old. I have snoring problems. I am a bit fat. Is that the only reason. And throughout the day I feel like I have lost my energy. Do I have to take any medication.

Overweight and snoring is an alarming sign of sleep apnea. Have 2 tests done and upload the report. 1. Polysomnography (sleep study) - can be done at your home also. 2. Spirometry report.

Sir Pharyngitis is inflammation of pharynx which you call sore throat. What I am getting from your history is you may have tonsillitis. If it is not getting done by antibiotics, better meet ENT surgeon and get it removed or biopsied The lab report will confirm it's nature and will decide further course of action. ... Best wishes

Swine flu and adenoids are two different condition. From the description given by you, your son definitely needs surgery for the adenoids. As far as swine flu is considered, treatment depends on various parameters and category of illness. Best possible course of action is to visit the nearest hospital.

Subtotal thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure, in which the surgeon leaves a small thyroid remnant in situ to preserve thyroid function, thereby preventing lifelong thyroid hormone supplementation therapy but a high percentage of patients still develops hypothyroidism and need levothyroxine therapy depending upon the levels of thyroid hormones (t3, t4, tsh), if they are normal or hypothyroid levels.

Ear hygiene and cleanig

Ear hygiene and cleanig

There is a tradition in a lot of families to clean ears regularly with ear buds or q tips and those who don't do it are many times considered unhygienic. But it may risk hearing ability. Inside ear is a very delicate structure and is likely to be damaged easily even with trivial trauma.

 

First, we must understand that wax has a useful role to play in the ear, it lubricates protects and renders antiseptic property. Ears without wax feel dry and itchy. Wax is self-cleaned from our ear canal propagated by movements of the jaw. So most of the times there is never any need to clean wax from inside the ears. The only external surface of the ear should be cleaned with a cloth.

 

Many times attempts to clean ears with ear buds results in injury to the delicate skin of ear canal and even worse it may injure the eardrum or if there is a wax chunk it may push deep into the eardrums.

 

Earwax needs to cleaned only when it obstructs the sound pathway to ear drum. When there is a feeling of fullness or blockage or plugged, there is a partial hearing loss there is ringing in the ears or tinnitus or noise in the ear or there is itching or odour in the ear.

 

Many times home remedies are useful to remove ear wax like instilling drops of mineral oil glycerine or commercially available drops. If not successful then it should be removed by ent surgeon. Ent surgeon may wash earwax out with warm water or saline. Sometimes ent surgeon may remove wax by suction or microinstruments under a microscope. There is no proven remedy for frequent wax impaction but it is very important to avoid inserting any object inside the ear to clean wax. Those who get frequent wax impaction or using hearing aids may need to see ent surgeon every 6 to 12 months to clean wax regularly.
