General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi,

From the query, it is obvious that you are suffering from Acute Tonsillitis. Tonsils are the organs present in the oropharyngeal cavity which protects the airways from bacterial and viral infection. Sometime, overwhelm response to the infection by enlargement, lymphadenopathy, fatigue, fever, throat pain, etc.

Tonsillitis is more common in childhood. In case of recurrent and chronic tonsillitis, it should be excised by surgery. Antibiotics are advised for tonsillitis. Acetaminopen for fever and body pain. Take rest, drink of warm water or cold to relieve throat pain, lukewarm water with salt gargling helps to overcome sore throat, ice creams and other soft food are advised. Middle ear infection is one of the complications of tonsillitis. Visit an ENT specialist as early as possible to prevent complications.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pradeepraj, General & Family Physician
