This article explains herbal medicines for tonsillitis and other options for treatment. The mouth is the major pathway into our body, everything that we eat and drink passes through the mouth and it is sometimes used for breathing. It, therefore, becomes important that there must be a guard in this pathway to regulate the passage of substances; this is the main function of the tonsils. But sometimes this safety mechanism is bridged as they are greatly outnumbered by microorganisms, causing the tonsils itself to become infected resulting in a condition known as tonsillitis.
The passage from the mouth through the throat is partially covered by two masses of tissues known as the tonsils; they lie just behind the throat and contain antibodies that help in removing harmful bacteria from all the food, water and air that pass in through the mouth and into the body. But at certain times, the tonsils become infected, leading to inflammation, redness and severe pains in the throat, this condition is referred to as tonsillitis.
Tonsillitis is a common condition that mostly affects children, especially those in school, as the disease is highly communicable through tiny droplets in the air produced by sneezing, and through oral contact mainly by kissing.
Common symptoms of tonsillitis include; throat pain, painful blisters in the throat, throat ulcers, swollen neck, difficulty in swallowing, headache, loss of appetite, bad breath and fever. Sometimes the inflammation and swelling caused by the condition can become large enough to block the airways, making breathing through the mouth to be difficult.
Tonsillitis is mainly caused by viruses, several types of viruses have been implicated, they include influenza (flu) viruses, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) known for causing mononucleosis or kissing disease, herpes simplex virus, and bacteria with the most common being Streptococcus. These microorganisms are spread through tiny spores that are airborne and transferred from infected persons to another through sneezing and oral contact like kissing.
