Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how did you know that your child has tonsillitis? Has it been checked directly to the doctor and diagnosed with tonsillitis?
The most common disease that occurs in tonsils is inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis). This condition generally occurs due to a viral infection, although it can also be caused by a bacterial infection. Symptoms that arise due to tonsillitis are usually in the form of:
Swollen tonsils, redness, pain, lumps, sometimes also covered in a thick membrane
Dizziness, headache, neck pain
Difficulty swallowing, hoarseness
Nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite
Cough, runny nose and so on
Not infrequently, the symptoms of tonsillitis can be very similar to the symptoms of other diseases, for example parotitis, rhinosinusitis, peritonsillary abscess, tonsillar cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease, allergies, croup, and so on. Therefore, before going to the doctor, you should not be too early in drawing conclusions related to the condition of your child at this time. Because, different diseases, of course it can also be different handling. Check with your child first to see a doctor, pediatrician, or ENT specialist doctor so that proper management is given.
For now, the following initial suggestions you can make:
Let the child rest more
Give it first a food that is soupy, mushy, and easier to digest
Give him more drink too
Reduce the provision of food and drinks that are too hot, too cold, oily, artificial sweetness, spicy, sour, and berasas
Do not get used to hawking children carelessly
If there are people around a child who have an infectious respiratory infection, keep it away from contact with the child
Give the child paracetamol so that the fever and headache subside
Keep children away from air conditioners and fans that are too cold, use a humidifier when possible
Do not just give the child medicine without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
