Throat Problems

Tonsillitis

Tonsils do the job of a watchman. Their role is to warn the body about a possible infection. The tonsils, located at the back of the throat, trap the infection that enters through the mouth and attempts to localize it in the throat. The symptoms of tonsillitis are a sore throat, and red and swollen tonsils that may have white patches on them. 

Doctors usually prescribe antibiotics to deal with the infection. Ice cream and cold liquids will soothe your child's throat. Earlier, it was quite common to have a child's tonsils removed. Today, a tonsillectomy is only considered if a child has severe and frequent attacks leading to ear infection and deafness. Tonsillitis can lead to middle ear infection and chronic deafness.
