Good afternoon doctor .. r nDok I want to ask. My left tonsil was swollen, and there were many small bumps in the back of my throat. What are the characteristics of the disease? Thank you in advance…

Hi.


The tonsils are a normal tissue in the oral cavity. The tonsils have a role in immune system, for example when exposed to a sore throat or respiratory tract infection. Repeated inflammation of the tonsils can lead to enlarged tonsils.


From what you experience, swollen tonsils accompanied by small bumps at the back of the throat may be caused by chronic tonsillitis. Chronic tonsillitis or chronic inflammation of the tonsils is a condition that is quite common. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils usually occurs due to recurrent respiratory infections, or recurrent inflammation of the tonsils. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils can cause enlarged tonsils, accompanied by white bumps in the area around the tonsils (detritus). In addition, chronic inflammation of the tonsils can cause bad breath, drowsiness, and snoring when sleeping.


Chronic tonsillitis which causes large enough tonsils usually requires surgery, and treatment with certain antibiotics may be necessary.


but besides that the condition you experience can also be caused by other causes such as:

yeast infection
throat abscess
certain bacterial infections

therefore, to determine the cause of the condition you are experiencing, you should check with an ENT specialist so that the doctor can further examine your condition.


It is recommended that you drink enough water. Maintain oral hygiene. Don't smoke and don't consume alcohol. Eat enough vegetables and fruit. Avoid consuming foods that contain lots of flavoring.
