Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First I want to straighten up first, tonsils or also called tonsils are actually normal organs behind your throat. Humans have a pair of tonsils that are about the size of an olive and have an important function in the body's immune system. If inflammation occurs in the tonsils, tonsils can become swollen and if the swelling in the tonsils is large enough, symptoms such as shortness of breath and difficulty swallowing food can occur.


Inflammation of the tonsils can occur due to many things, the most common cause is a viral infection, other causes are bacterial, fungal, or allergic infections and irritation of the airways. If you look at the back of your throat and you see that your two tonsils appear to be enlarged to almost cover the curve of your throat, you should immediately check yourself to the ENT doctor. If you see a white or gray membrane covering the tonsils and the base of your throat, you should also immediately go to an ENT doctor and don't delay because these conditions can be dangerous to your health if left unchecked. If it only enlarges a little, the tonsils don't look dirty, then the possibility of enlargement is caused by a viral infection or allergies and irritation. When caused by a viral infection, then generally this condition will improve by itself within 7-10 days. If caused by allergies or irritants, the condition will improve itself after allergens and irritants are removed. Consumption of baby oranges or lime will likely not help much to reduce inflammation in the tonsils.


If you are in doubt, you should still check with your doctor so that you can check directly on your throat.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
