Best regards, I’m Raena in the age of 20 to ask: r n Can carriers trigger tonsillitis, if this is the case, is it certain that the tonsillitis is caused by bacteria? How to handle it? R nCan too much vitamin C consumption for ulcer sufferers also cause tonsillitis? Then is it true that pure soda can cure tonsillitis? R n r nSorry to bother, thank you very much Doctor 🙂

Good Morning Raena,


Thank you for the question.


Cavities that are left continuously can lead to wider infections in our oral cavity, such as tooth abscess, inflammation of the tonsils or what is also known as tonsillitis, sinusitis, and even endocarditis. Although it can be caused by bacteria (generally from the Streptococcus group), inflammation of the tonsils can also be caused by a virus. In people with gastric-acid disease or GERD, malfunctioning of the lower esophageal sphinchter (LES), which is a muscle loop in the lower part of the esophagus, stomach acid can come out of the stomach into the esophagus and then irritate and even injure the mucous lining in the esophagus, worse until to the tonsils. This can also trigger inflammation of the tonsils, especially if people with GERD consume acidic food and beverage ingredients.


Treating tonsillitis are:

Take fever relievers or mild pain relievers such as paracetamol which can be purchased over the counter at pharmacies
Eat healthy foods with a balanced menu
Drink more
Get enough rest, avoid staying up late
Gargle with salt water, mix half a teaspoon of salt with 250ml of water

If the complaint does not get better, consult a doctor, yes, antibiotics may be needed. The final step is surgery. Unfortunately, there are no studies regarding the consumption of pure soda with curing tonsillitis.


So hopefully it can help.
