Swelling of tonsils or tonsils does not always have to be accompanied by complaints of cough, runny nose, phlegm, fever, and headaches. Although the frequent inflammation of the tonsils is closely related to these symptoms it returns to what is the cause of the inflammation of the tonsils.
If the cause is a bacterial infection, then symptoms such as fever, headache, pain in the neck / tonsils, cough often appear compared to inflammation caused by a viral infection generally have milder symptoms than an infection caused by bacteria.
Besides tonsillitis can also be due to trauma such as pricking a thorn or because of irritation from the food consumed, usually swelling of the tonsils is only limited to symptoms of inflammation (pain, swelling, red).
Even so the swelling of the inside of the oral cavity and neck should not be underestimated, because there is a medical condition with similar symptoms that has the potential to close the respiratory tract if you do not get proper treatment, so the best step to do is to check with your nose doctor and throat to ensure that Nia's condition is not dangerous.
