Hello Sehati,

Inflammation of the tonsils or tonsillitis is an inflammatory condition of the tonsils that causes pain in the throat, redness of the tonsils, enlarged tonsils, ear pain, headache, cough, fever and others. This condition can be acute and chronic, in chronic cases it can be accompanied by a variety of enlargement of the tonsils and can also cause complications, one of which is sleep disorders such as snoring, ear infections, kidney infections, abscesses or accumulation of pus which causes bad breath, and others .

If it is acute, the doctor will provide treatment according to the symptoms that arise and the cause is if the bacteria is given antibiotics. If tonsillitis can no longer be treated with antibiotics, causing more severe symptoms that make it difficult to swallow, difficulty sleeping or difficulty breathing, a tonsil removal procedure is necessary. Besides that, removal of the tonsils is also recommended for chronic tonsillitis if you have had frequent symptoms in the past year. The surgery method itself has a variety of techniques so you don't need to worry or be afraid because this procedure is a procedure that has been frequently performed by ENT specialists so it is certainly safe even though it still has risks.

Check with an ENT specialist for further management of your condition. Because the condition you are describing could be a collection of pus or an abscess on the tonsils. Try not to pry out your tonsils because it can cause irritation, infection or dangerous bleeding, try to keep food and drink intake, use personal protection such as masks when traveling and drink more water and increase your immune system to prevent recurrent tonsillitis.
