Infected tonsils can result in inflammation, which is known as tonsillitis. It can be related to bacterial or viral pathogens and leads to such symptoms as sore throat, swollen tonsils, fever, and difficulty swallowing.
Treatment Plan for Tonsils, infected–acute
Natural medicine usually holds the theory that the condition is precipitated by food allergies, which can lead to hypersensitivity and heat in various parts of the body. Because of this, it may be beneficial to avoid dairy products, wheat, and eggs–which are all common allergens–for 3-4 weeks to see if there is an improvement in symptoms. Herbal support includes immune stimulants, anti-inflammatories for the mucous membranes, and antibacterial herbs.
