Hi When I eat sweets, my right ear becomes wet and pus comes out of it. Pus formation is existing since my birth and I was treated for this. Just since a year or two this problem is coming. I gave birth my child at home in minus degrees and immediately had a bath under tap with cold freezing water. Is it the reason for my problem. Lately I realized I have sinusitis cos I feel like sneezing but it stops, if I sneeze I sneeze for 2 or 3 times at a time. It gives me headache. I have migraine problem. Presently I am taking okacet. Kindly suggest me a very good drug so that this infection is gone forever. I am scared of surgeries and there is nobody who can take care of me post surgery. Thank you.
I am a 23 year old guy. I recently had a master health checkup done. Everything was ok except for a fact that my chest xray indicated that I had prominent left hilum. The doctor who I consulted that there is nothing to worry in 99% of the cases but I should be careful and take a CT scan done. Is it necessary or should I go for an MRI? Do I need to worry? P.S I have had asthma and weezing as a child and I had primary complex twice in my childhood. I have been smoking for the last 4 years.

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:
- Chronic tonsillitis: This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of bad breath and tenderness in the lymph nodes.
- 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:
- Herpes simplex virus
- Epstein-Barr virus
- Influenza virus
- Parainfluenza virus
The various symptoms of tonsillitis are
- Swallowing difficulties
- A sore throat
- The sore throat may result in bad breath
- You may experience fever and chills
- Pain in the head, ear and stomach
- You may experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw
- Swollen tonsils with possible redness
- Changes in voice
- 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.
