Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The tonsils are actually an organ whose function is important, one of which is to maintain the body's resistance from infection. However, sometimes, the tonsils themselves become inflamed, also known as tonsillitis. This condition is what is likely to make your tonsils enlarge and give off an unpleasant odor. The most common cause of this infection is bacteria, namely from the B beta hemolytic Streptococcus brup group. In addition, infection can also be caused by bacteria or other viruses. This infection can spread, for example, if you come into direct or indirect contact with someone's saliva, for example when he sneezes or coughs.
Not only are the tonsils enlarged and smell bad, often times, people with tonsillitis also feel itching or pain in the throat, cough with phlegm, fever, muscle and joint pain, nausea, decreased appetite, and so on.
Overcoming tonsillitis actually doesn't have to be done directly with surgery. In general, the doctor will first evaluate how the inflamed tonsils are. Some of the factors that can be considered for surgery in people with tonsillitis are:
If the tonsils are enlarged to close along the airway or more If the enlarged tonsils make it difficult for the person to breathe or interfere with sleep If the inflamed tonsils are the focus of infection that spreads to other areas If the patient's clinical symptoms are very severe then the operation can be done. Of course, choosing what type of surgery is most appropriate should be discussed directly with the ENT specialist who will examine you. There are several types of surgery currently available, namely open surgery, laser, ultrasound, diathermy, or cold ablation. Consult directly with your doctor the best surgery method.
Currently, you should first get plenty of rest and consume fluids (especially warm water). Also eat more foods rich in vitamin C and warm soup, limit foods that are too acidic, spicy, and fried. Avoid smoking, use a mask to prevent harmful particles from entering your mouth. Do not forget, always brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with salt water to keep your teeth and mouth healthy.
