Many people treat tonsillitis as a trivial common cold in autumn, avoiding a visit to a physician and refusing to use strong antibiotics. Such actions will, unfortunately, lead to no good.
Tonsillitis is a bacterial (much less frequently a viral) throat infection easy to diagnose and treat but its complications may be very difficult to overcome. When the inflammation of tonsils is improperly treated – medications for the common cold are used or the therapy ordered by the physician is not completed – the risk of complications from tonsillitis increases.
The most common complications from tonsillitis include:
inflammation of the middle ear,
hypertrophy of tonsils.
Therefore, to prevent dangerous complications from tonsillitis, as soon as you notice that you, or your relatives, have the characteristic symptoms of the condition, visit a physician who will diagnose the disease properly and order an effective treatment.
