Does child with tonsillitis usually like to eat soft stuff she eats yogurt and pudding a lot wants to eat other food but scared?

Does child with tonsillitis usually like to eat soft stuff she eats yogurt and pudding a lot wants to eat other food but scared?

Tonsillitis diet: Indeed kids (and adults too for that matter) prefer soft foods when the throat hurts a lot. Push fluids, and concentrate on protein containing foods like the yogurt she is eating, scrambled eggs, soups, etc. If it goes on for more than a few days, then worry, but go with the flow for a couple of days when she's not feeling well. As throat symptoms improve, add in other foods. ...Read more

Hello have tonsillitis and have been put on penicillin two tablets four times daily without food, my urine is a florecent. Yellow is this normal?

Don't worry: You might even smell the antibiotic in your urine. The color is usually related to your level of hydration. The clearer the better. If you are fighting an infection it is best to drink lots and lots of fluids. You will be helping your body fight the infection and you will feel better. Most people are somewhat dehydrated normally. When sick, they tend to drink less, and this makes things worse. ...Read more

Hello HealthTap! Good Day!

Tonsilitis: In adults, most cases of tonsillitis are viral, and therefore do not need to be treated. In this case, care measures such as salt water gargles, Tylenol (which is safe), lozenges and a humidifier may be helpful. In cases of bacterial tonisilitis, penicillin is the treatment of choice and is safe to use in pregnancy. ...Read more

See a doctor: If you are having back and chest pain along with tonsillitis you need to be seen by a doctor asap and examined and perhaps undergo some lab testing and imaging studies. The internet is the wrong place to approach this, and please go and be seen and have a full evaluation. It might be very serious. ...Read more

Hoping you can tell me, is boiled egg and soldiers a good thing to eat when you have tonsillitis?

Tonsil diet: When the tonsils are inflamed or infected, aside from the treatment given by your dr, it is critical to maintain your fluid hydration and your nutrition so that your body can heal and get better. First, stay well hydrated. Avoid citrus juices and tomato juice as these are acidy and can burn. Foods can certainly be eggs, but can also include anything that is soft that doesn't need much chewing. ...Read more
