Tonsils are the two lymph nodes located on each side of the back of your throat. They function as a defence mechanism. They help prevent your body from infection. When the tonsils become infected, the condition is called tonsillitis. If the infection is viral rather than bacterial, antibiotics will not be prescribed. The treatment for tonsillitis depends on the cause and the severity of the condition. An Endocrinologist will perform a throat swab to check for streptococcal bacteria, or a complete blood cell count to determine the cause of the infection. Depending on the results of your tests, your doctor will recommend the treatment that suits the best to the patient. Thus Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of the tonsils that may be recommended for children who suffer from recurrent tonsillitis and do not respond to other treatment options. Tonsillitis cure will depend in part on the cause. To determine the cause, your doctor may perform a rapid strep test or throat swab culture. Both tests involve gently swabbing the back of the throat close to the tonsils with a cotton swab. Treatment for tonsillitis with more severe cases may include antibiotics or a tonsillectomy. Antibiotics will be prescribed to fight a bacterial infection. The full course of antibiotics must be taken, whether symptoms are relieved or not. Failure to do so might allow the infection to spread and has the potential to cause rheumatic fever or kidney inflammation in the long term.
