Tonsillitis

Tonsillitis

Tonicitis is inflammation of tonsillitis, usually starts fast. This is a type of pharyngitis. Symptoms include sore throat, fever, tonsill enlargement, difficulty in swallowing and large lymph nodes around the neck. Complications include peritonillar abscess.

Tonicillitis is usually caused by a viral infection, caused by a bacterial infection in about 5% to 40% of cases. When the bacterium is caused by group A Streptococcus, it is known as Strepe's throat. Rare bacteria such as niaserea gonorrhea, corynebacterium diphtheria or Hemophilus influenza may be the reason for this. Usually, the transition spreads among the people through the air. A scoring system, such as centaur scores, can help with different possible causes. Confirmation can be done by a sore throat or rapidly strap test.

Treatment efforts include improvements in symptoms and reducing complications. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen are used to help with the pain. The antibiotic penicillin is recommended if mouth straps are present. Cephalosporins or macrolides can be used in those people who are allergic to penicillin. In children with frequent episodes of tonsillitis, tonsillectomy usually reduces the risk of future episodes.

Approximately 7.5% of people have a sore throat in any three month period and 2% of people meet a doctor for tonsillitis every year. This is the most common among schoolchildren and usually occurs in the fall and winter months. Most people recover with or without medication. In 40% of people, the symptoms are resolved within three days, and 80% of symptoms are solved within one week or even if streptococcus is present. Antibiotics reduce the duration of symptoms to about 16 hours.
