Take Pain Medication For Tonsil Sufferers?
Can you take paracetamol when the tonsils recur?
Hello Astitiretnoasih, thank you for asking.
Tonsils are a structure in the throat, which functions to maintain immunity. Tonsils are called tonsils in the medical world, so inflammation of the tonsils is called tonsillitis. Tonsillitis can be acute or chronic. The cause is a bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms include swallowing pain, a lump in the throat, and fever. Not all tonsillitis requires antibiotic treatment. Some cases of tonsillitis can heal itself within a period of approximately one week.
You may take paracetamol when you have tonsillitis, as long as you don't have an allergy to paracetamol. The drug functions as a heat-lowering and anti-pain. Consumption according to the dose, which is 3-4 times a day, each time taking 1-2 tablets. Don't take paracetamol more than 4 grams (4000 mg) per day. You can help relieve symptoms by drinking plenty of water, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit, avoid smoking, caffeine, and alcohol. If after more than one week you do not experience improvement in symptoms, immediately consult a doctor.
Hopefully this answer is helpful. Regards.
