What is Tonsillitis & what are its types?

Tonsillitis is referred to as the infection of the tonsils, which are the pair of padded tissues at the back of the throat which can be treated with the right ent treatment. Therefore, while in most cases, the tonsils help act as filters for the external micro-organisms that may cause an infection and prevent one by the generation of antibodies, in many cases these filters get affected by these external micro-organisms themselves.

The infection causes them to swell and be inflamed. This thereby results in enlarged tonsils in adults.

There are three types of tonsillitis. These are:

  • Acute tonsillitis: This is one wherein the symptoms usually last three to four days and may even last about two weeks. Acute tonsillitis treatment involves minimal medication and with proper care can go off on its own as well.
  • Recurrent tonsillitis: This is the type of tonsillitis wherein you may have the inflamed tonsils several times in a year.
  • Tonsillitis: This is the category of tonsillitis wherein you have a long-term inflamed and infected pair of tonsils.

    What is the viral tonsillitis treatment?

    The tonsillitis treatment or the best way to remove tonsil stones is primarily dependent on the causative agent, the bacteria, or the virus. In general, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics if you are infected by bacteria, and you will begin feeling better in a couple of days. Other home remedies and treatment for tonsillitis include:

    1. Taking plenty of rest.
    2. High intake of fluids.
    3. Gargling with warm water.
    4. Having lozenges and over-the-counter medication.

    If it gets severe then the sinus will also get affected which might lead to one requiring for surgery for sinusitis. In an extreme case where the patient suffers from recurrent tonsillitis, your doctor may recommend a tonsillectomy wherein the tonsils are removed from the back of the throat. Acute tonsillitis treatment does not involve tonsillectomy. Your doctor may use a scalpel, laser, or radio waves to remove the tonsils. This would reduce the tonsillitis symptoms and treatment. It would be best if you discussed the options and the surgery plan with your doctor before proceeding in for it.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    To some extent, there is a possibility of regrowth of the tonsil tissue. During the surgical procedure, if some tissue is left, then the tonsils may regrow partially. Complete regrowth post-tonsillectomy is not possible.
    Tonsillectomy is a relatively safe surgery that is carried out as an out-patient procedure. Despite this, bleeding and dehydration are some of the risks of tonsillectomy. This happens especially when the patient may not frequently hydrate after the surgery. Extreme dehydration may even lead to possible admission to the hospital. The bleeding can happen five to ten days after the surgery. Other minor risks of the surgery include scarring, changes in voice, and breathing issues.
    Bacterial tonsillitis can be characterized by the presence of white spots on the throat alongside the swollen tonsils. Viral tonsillitis does not have any such indications aside from a red and swollen pair of tonsils. Both bacterial tonsillitis treatment and viral tonsillitis treatment differ.
    Strep infection is the infection of the tonsils by the bacterial group A streptococcus. Lack of bacterial tonsillitis treatment can result in an increased risk of several infections such as rheumatic fever, post-streptococcal arthritis, kidney, and scarlet fever inflammation.
    Your doctor can diagnose your infection by a throat swab, a blood test involving a complete blood cell count, and a rash examination. The examination for rash is particularly necessary for bacterial tonsillitis treatment and swollen tonsil treatment.
    Your doctor would recommend sending your blood samples for a complete blood cell count to assess the count of the different types of blood cells and determine the level of infection and the type of infection affecting your body.
    Given that the patient is put under general anesthesia for the procedure, laser tonsillectomy recovery time can take approximately thirty minutes to an hour. In some patients, it may take a longer time to recover from the anesthesia. The patient can head home after the procedure and follow up with the doctor. The laser tonsillectomy cost is affordable with free follow-ups.
    After booking the appointment with the doctor, you must bring in all your medical or your child's medical record. These would help assess and correctly diagnose the condition of the child. In addition to this, you must keep your mouth and nose covered completely to prevent the transfer of the infection from child to child to travel.
    Tonsillectomy is the only treatment procedure for those who have recurrent tonsillitis. Therefore it is not a compulsory treatment if you are suffering from acute tonsillitis.
    The follow-ups post-surgery with the doctor are free of cost, and our team would contact you to help you stay in touch with your doctor. The Tonsillitis surgery cost is made affordable to all patients.

    Overview

    About Tonsillitis 

    Tonsils are the pack of tissues related to the immune system present at the back of the throat. The tonsils’ primary function is to generate an immune reaction to prevent the body from getting an infection by any foreign microorganism or particles. The condition wherein the tonsils become inflamed and redden is called tonsillitis.
