Tonsillitis is a condition, which is characterized by infection of the tonsils in your throat. The tonsils are a pair of lymph nodes that are situated in the throat; its primary function is to protect the body from various infections. Although the disorder can occur at any age, it is majorly common among children. A large number of bacteria or viruses can cause this disorder, but the most serious symptoms occur when it is caused by the streptococcal bacteria.
The first defense mechanism of the body is made up of the tonsils. They synthesize white blood cells which fight against infections. Although tonsils combat these infections, at times, they can fall prey to the same, thus resulting in tonsillitis. Tonsillitis can be caused by both virus and bacteria; however, it is mostly caused by the former. Kids and school going children are very vulnerable to this disorder as they can come in contact with harmful viruses and bacteria very easily.
You will experience symptoms such as a sore throat, bad breath and have difficulty in speaking. Swelling of the tonsils will also make swallowing of food a difficult affair. Other symptoms of tonsillitis are stomach cramps, fever and headaches. The neck and the jaw may also feel tender due to the swollen lymph nodes.
If the symptoms are mild, then it usually does not require any specific treatment. For severe symptoms, antibiotics are prescribed to combat the bacteria that caused the infection in the first place. Chronic cases of this disorder warrant a surgery known as tonsillectomy. This is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils. In case of dehydration, intravenous fluids are administered.
In addition to these treatment methods, there are certain home remedies that you can follow. The tips you can follow are:
- Keep yourself well hydrated
- Use a humidifier
- Gargle with lukewarm water mixed with salt, regularly

Asthma is a potentially dangerous disease, and according to WHO estimates, 235 million people around the world suffer from it. It is also the most common chronic health condition among children.
In the event of an asthma attack, the airways of the lungs become inflamed, and the condition is triggered by allergens such as mould, dust, pollen, and pet dander. The symptoms include frequent coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing, fatigue, and other changes in lung function. Anything that triggers allergies can also lead to asthma symptoms.
Because of the severity of this disease, it's important to get the facts right, so as to avoid mishaps and interference in proper treatment. On World Asthma Day, we set record straight on this condition, its causes, symptoms, and treatment.
Myth: People with asthma shouldn't exercise.
If the asthma is under control, there is absolutely no reason why people with the condition can't be physically active. It is important for both adults and children to stay active and healthy to prevent obesity. Obesity is an asthma trigger that can make symptoms worse.
Myth: Asthma can be cured.
Not true. Asthma is treatable, but despite great progress in the field of medicine, we still don't have a cure for this condition. Some people believe that alternative medicine such as homeopathy or Ayurveda have the potential to cure asthma, but this is simply not true. Only a timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help people with asthma lead normal, active lives.
Myth: Inhaled steroids are harmful and addictive.
A lot of people confuse inhaled steroids with anabolic steroids that are used in sports and fitness. Inhaled steroids are asthma preventer medications, and currently, these medications are the only way to keep severe asthma under control. They are effective and non-addictive.
Myth: Children outgrow asthma.
It is a misconception that children who have asthma outgrow it by the time they hit puberty. The disease does go into remission in some kids around puberty, but this is not because the asthma has been cured. Most often, the symptoms strike again, and sometimes the asthma returns when young adults start consuming alcohol.
Myth: Smoking does not affect asthma.
False! Smoking is a major asthma trigger, which is why people with asthma have an even stronger reason than most to quit this harmful habit. Second-hand smoking by a parent also triggers asthma symptoms or worsens them in kids. Many people with asthma find when they quit smoking they experience significantly fewer symptoms and less frequent asthma attacks.
Myth: Moving to a dry climate can cure asthma.
It's true that a change in environment may temporarily put off asthma symptoms, but it's not possible that this will cure the disease. Many people find that their symptoms reduce when they're at the countryside or the coast. Eventually, allergens will trigger the symptoms again.
To reduce asthma triggers at home, make sure your house is dust-free. Clean your fans and AC units often. Avoid carpeting and other furnishings that trap dust and mould. Keeps your windows closed during pollen season. If humid climate is a trigger for you, use a dehumidifier in your home.
Myth: It's normal to use your inhaler at least once a day.
Not true! If you are regularly your inhaler to treat asthma symptoms more than twice a week, then it is obvious that your condition is not under control. It's important that you see your doctor and talk about what's going on.
