Good morning, it’s been 2 days I have a hard sore throat … And just this morning I checked it turned out that my tonsils were swollen but I like seeing a hole in the tonsils on the right and there are 2 white dots near the hole … drink Dexamethasone + cefadroxil already better but still sick and there are holes like that … Now what should I do?
Hello Laras, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Inflammation that occurs in tonsils is called tonsillitis. Tonsillitis itself can be acute or chronic. In chronic tonsillitis or inflammation that has happened for a very long time there can be a detritus of the tonsils. Detritus itself is a bacterium trapped in a hollowing curve that occurs in the tonsils, which are usually white.
Complaints that will arise can be mild to severe, which causes the tonsils to be removed. Minor complaints such as swallowing pain, coughing, fever, etc. Whereas complaints are said to be heavy like:
There is a pertonsil abscess.
Tonsillitis causes febrile seizures.
Causes breathing difficulties, sleep apnea, difficulty swallowing, which results in the size of the tonsils that are too large.
Recurrence> 3x in one year.
The mouth becomes smelly, it is due to inflammation of the tonsils can not be treated with drugs.
Some of the above are some indications of tonsillectomy, or removal of the tonsils. For that you can consult an ENT specialist for complaints that you experience.
Right now what you can do is:
Don't take medicine carelessly.
Avoid drinking cold water.
Avoid foods that are too oily and greasy, which can make inflammation worse.
Evaluate your complaint.
Consult a ENT doctor if the complaint does not go away.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you :)
