Treatment Of Swollen But Not Painful Tonsils?
hello doctor. it’s been a week i recover from the tonsils I don’t feel sick to swallow, I don’t have a fever, I don’t feel flu anymore. but why won’t the tonsils be deflated huh? I’ve finished the antibiotics too. So because I haven’t been deflated, I haven’t had the courage to drink ice or eat spicy and oily food. is there a solution so that my tonsils return to normal? please explain doctor. thanks.
The tonsils are soft tissue that normally resides in the mouth. The tonsils can become enlarged, for example when there is a common cold cough, sore throat, or other respiratory tract infection. If indeed you often experience respiratory infections, usually the tonsils will be enlarged. The enlarged tonsils will be more prone to inflammation, causing acute tonsillitis / acute inflammation of the tonsils.
Acute tonsillitis can cause symptoms such as painful swallowing, burning sensation in the throat, feeling lumpy, and may be accompanied by fever and headache. Acute inflammation of the tonsils can improve with treatment using certain antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. But usually if the tonsils are already enlarged, the tonsils can't shrink anymore.
But you can prevent the tonsils from getting bigger and so that acute inflammation doesn't occur again in the tonsils. To prevent this, you should consume enough water, consume fruits and vegetables, avoid eating foods that contain oil and flavorings, and get enough rest. It's important not to smoke.
If indeed your tonsils are very enlarged and cover your throat, you may need a tonsillectomy by an ENT specialist.
