How To Relieve Tonsillitis In Children Aged 9 Years?
Hello, good night I want to ask how or how to reduce tonsils in children aged 9 years, incidentally my child is now coughing and fever whether it can affect my child’s tonsils
Hello Rustam, Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis) is an infection of the airways that can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi, which results in symptoms of fever, coughing and enlargement of the tonsils as the body's response to fight these germs. Therefore, it is important to remember that coughing and fever are common symptoms of airway infections that may or may not be related to your child's tonsils.
Treatment for this disease varies in each case and is very dependent on the cause and severity of the disease. In mild inflammation of the tonsils or caused by a virus, in good body condition, adequate rest and adequate nutrition can generally heal by itself. In some cases other than fever medication it may be necessary to add anti-inflammatory drugs, or even add antibiotics if it is certain that the cause of the inflammation is bacterial. If tonsillar enlargement is very common, or begin to interfere with breathing, causing snoring in children during sleep (Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome / Sleep apnea), it can be advisable to do surgical removal of tonsils.
I advise you to check your child with a pediatrician or ENT specialist doctor for a more complete examination and to determine the appropriate type of treatment for your child's condition.
The things you can do right now are:
Avoid consumption of cold drinks or or fatty foods and irritate the airways Maintain cleanliness of teeth and mouth, because they can be a source of infection Keep your child's nutritional and fluid needs are met Adequate rest Thus, hopefully it can help yes.
