The Natural Cause Is Always Swollen Tonsils?
Every year if the weather is not good, or I often drink ice. His tonsils recur every year. I hear that adults rarely get tonsils because the immune system is transferred to other organs. But why do I always have swollen tonsils every year? Is this chronic and requires surgery? Or may I take antibiotics every time I have tonsils? There are no side effects if you have to take antibiotics?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before proceeding, it is necessary to make sure in advance what is called the tonsils. Tonsils or tonsils are organs that are located in the oral cavity, amounting to two which are each located on the left and right side. In children and adolescents, this organ functions as one of the main immune systems which over time begins to be replaced. For more details about the shape and location of tonsils, see the image below.
The picture on the left shows normal tonsils or tonsils, while the one on the right shows tonsils that are inflamed or have tonsillitis. The cause of tonsillitis can be a variety of things, such as bacterial, viral infections, low endurance and prolonged exposure to sufferers.
In your case, if this condition is true that you are experiencing, then it is true that surgery may be one of the paths that must be taken. Because among the indications or conditions that are allowed to do tonsillectomy is inflammation that occurs repeatedly. So if it has swelled repeatedly, surgery might be needed.
But if you don't really see any swelling or are not really diagnosed with tonsillitis by a doctor every time you get sick, and conclude based only on symptoms such as swallowing pain, then the condition could occur due to other diseases, such as strep throat or respiratory tract infection.
Therefore, our advice is that you should consult your general practitioner or directly to the ENT doctor to avoid misunderstandings. If your doctor diagnoses you with tonsillitis, then you can ask for consideration to do surgery so that this condition does not drag on.
Meanwhile, take care of your health by avoiding food, drinks or activities that can trigger a weak immune system, such as excessive exercise, lack of sleep, stress, breathing in pollution or cigarette smoke, and so forth. Increase consumption of warm water, fruits and vegetables, and what is very important to remember is do not use antibiotics without a doctor's prescription. If you feel you need antibiotics, you can ask your doctor after the examination as a reminder. But if your doctor still doesn't give it, then you really don't need it because your condition has to be treated in another way. So, hopefully answering your question.
