This can be serious: If this is your child, and the tonsillitis is due to strep throat, and you have some idea that penicillin is bad for Junior, and he/she gets rheumatic fever & dies / is crippled, you'll be very sorry. If Junior's tonsils are big enough to obstruct his airway, and you refuse scientific treatment, he can die in front of you. Most minor sore throats need only comfort measures. ...Read more

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 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.

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

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

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. ...Read more
