Easy Home Remedies to Help You Treat Tonsillitis

Easy Home Remedies to Help You Treat Tonsillitis

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 at very early childhood.

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.

Causes:

 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.

Symptoms:

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.

Treatment:

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:

  1. Keep yourself well hydrated
  2. Use a humidifier
  3. Gargle with lukewarm water mixed with salt, regularly 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines. Techniques to steam 1) Boil a pot of water. 2) Pour water into a large flat pan or bowl.

Take a break every 1-2 minutes until you feel relatively cooler. Do it for 10 minute twice or thrice a day. If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume Take care - Take all precautions while dealing with hot water. Also, keep children away and wan others that you are dealing with boiling hot water. Other way is - by an Electric steamer available in market and take steam through it. It is more convenient. "

Hello Lybrate User, Take homeopatic treatment for chronic dry cough. Coughing is an important way to keep your throat and airways clear. However, excessive coughing may mean you have an underlying disease or disorder. Some coughs are dry, while others are productive. Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Dry coughs are unproductive and irritating. They’re usually triggered by an annoying tickle and expel little or no mucus. Common causes of coughs include asthma, allergies, lung infections such as pneumonia or acute bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema or chronic bronchitis), sinusitis leading to postnasal drip, smoking cigarettes or exposure to secondhand smoke, pollutants and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Homeopatic remedies may be taken safely by any patient including babies and those taking prescription medication without concerns regarding side-effects or interactions. Because homeopathy takes into account the overall picture, a person’s emotional makeup and general health, the type of illness and specific modalities that make the symptoms better or worse. Along with follow this tips - *Eat healthy food and avoid sugar or sugary foods which suppress the immune system for up to 5 hours after being eaten. * Get plenty of rest so your body can recoverMaintain hydration and keep your mucus membranes moist with frequent drinks of water or soothing teas. Soothe inflamed airways and loosen mucus with steam inhalations and warm showers. For homeopatic treatment consult me privately. Take care.
