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

Tonsil diet

Tonsillitis
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.

Hydrate, lozenges especially cepacol which has mild anesthetic properties, Tylenol, Advil, throat coat tea are suggestions. Gargle with an aspirin dissolved in salt water. If fever, large lymph glands, or infected looking tonsils then get culture for strep.

Is it good idea to remove tonsillitis at age 35?

Chronic tonsillitis

Tonsillitis
Maybe if the problem is worse than the solution. If you have multiple throat infections, recurrent peritonsillar abscesses or they are causing speaking or eating problems - maybe. Resubmit with your symptoms to narrow down risks benefits

Dr. Holly Maes answered:

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

Absolutely!

Tonsillitis
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.

Th dr said i have tonsillitis on tuseday i just got to get my antibotics on friday how long will it take for me to tlk good?

A few days, maybe...

Tonsillitis
Tonsillitis etc can be due to viruses & bacteria, but most commonly the former. In these situations, we'll get better w/time but nothing we take, including antibiotics, will make infection go away any faster. If we truly have strep throat, then antibiotics such as penicillin can make a difference. Check out http://www.mdcalc.com/modified-centor-score-for-strep-pharyngitis/ to determine difference.

I've had tonsillitis going on for 6 days now. I can only drink water.. I haven't had any real food. My chest and back are killing me!

See a doctor

Chest
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.

My roommate in a college dorm has tonsillitis, am I going to get it too now?

Maybe

Tonsillitis
You are at risk in getting tonsillitis as well. Don't share food, cups, utensils, napkins, etc. Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and remind your roommate to do the same. Make sure your roommate covers his/her mouth when he/she sneezes or cough

Depends on Cause

Tonsillitis
If caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics are needed. If caused by a viral infection, time improves. Other causes such such as allergies or trauma require specific interventions. See your doctor.
