Can I drink/eat cold foods like ice or ice cream while having tonsillitis?

Can I drink/eat cold foods like ice or ice cream while having tonsillitis?

Absolutely!: Eat any food that is comfortable. Usually cold and smooth foods like you describe go down more easily, and may even provide some soothing effect with the cold. I always tell kids with sore throats to eat what they want to and not to worry about other things for a few days. If that means an ice cream or milkshake diet for a couple of days, so be it.

If this develops hours after the exposure, the problem may be more complicated. Have you tried taking an antihistamine 1-2 hrs prior to the exposure to see if this helps? No swimming or showering in cold water please. Read more

Why do I get a toothache whenever I eat something cold, like ice cream, or drink a hot beverage? This never used to happen but has been getting worse for a while now. Do teeth get more sensitive as we get older?

Pulpitis: If you are getting lingering pain to hot and cold stimuli, then you have a pulpitis, or inflamation of the pulp of a tooth. This would necessitate a root canal on the offending tooth. As we get older, we may get more decay, fillings, crowns etc on a tooth. All these cumulative things traumatize the pulp and the result can be a pulpitis. Read more
