During acute attack of tonsillitis
usually there is severe pain
in the throat, u can't swallow or open mouth properly. Take analgesic
(pain killer drugs) and follow doctor's advice properly. If erythromycin
is showing good response then continue that drug and complete the course, dont stop in between. U can try addition things, like salt water gargling (reduces swelling), use antiseptic mouth wash, take hot semisolid soft diet, dont take oily or excessively fried food stuff...
If u are suffering from repeated attack of tonsillitis, then tonsillectomy
might be better option, consult ur doctor for this option.. wish u great health ahead....take care...bye....
