Recurrent Sore Throat

325987681_4bc2053cf4_m Recurrent tonsillitis and sore throat is one of the very common childhood disorders and can have significant impact on the health of a child. And with severe cold wave settling in North India, it can be very troublesome for those kids who have the tendency for it. So what does one do if a child is having recurrent episodes of tonsillitis? Is surgery the solution?

The answer is a big no. in fact surgery is not at all a good solution. Even The modern medical world has realized that removing a body part whose function itself is to protect the body from infection does no good. In reality it predisposes the body more towards infection .a better choice would be Homeopathic treatment as it offers a safe and a very effective solution in treating and even eradicating ones tendency towards tonsillitis.

What exactly is tonsillitis?

Tonsils are a pair of tissues situated on either side inside your throat. They are made up of lymph tissue (this means that they are a part of our body?s defense system).Their function is to filter harmful bacteria?s and viruses going inside our body through the mouth. These tonsils are filled with white blood cells ready to catch and destroy harmful microorganisms but at times they are overwhelmed by these microorganisms and inflammation in the tonsils takes place. This inflammation in the tonsils is called as tonsillitis. This causes them to swell up and become fiery red in color too

What are the Symptoms of tonsillitis?

The diagnosis of Recurrent Tonsillitis is made if the child has multiple episodes of acute tonsillitis. In acute tonsillitis, Pain in throat is often the symptoms that children first complain off. If you examine your child?s throat with torchlight, you will notice tonsils are enlarged and also red in color. They may also show white spots on them. Other signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include pain while swallowing and or difficulty in swallowing food, fever is common with inflamed tonsils. They may also complain of Headache. , Enlarged and sore glands in the jaw and neck. In some children the voice may also get altered. Airway obstruction due to swollen tonsils may cause mouth breathing, snoring, and nocturnal breathing pauses.

Homeopathy for recurrent tonsillitis.

Homeopathic treatment can treat both the acute condition and also stop the recurrence of tonsillitis. In acute tonsillitis homeopathic medicines such as Baryta Carb, Mercurius group, Belladonna, Aconite, Hepar Sulph work wonders if employed according to their indications. When an acute infection is treated with the right homeopathic medicine, the chances of tonsillitis recurring again also slim down. But in some cases a specialized treatment which actually fortifies the child?s defense system also needs to be done. This kind of treatment is known in homeopathic philosophy as a constitutional treatment where Deep-acting medicines are used to treat the constitution of the child and bring about lasting relief

Preventing and Managing tonsillitis

Proper hand wash

This is still the best way to prevent all kinds of infections, including tonsillitis. Make the child wash his hands thoroughly with soap and running water. Make sure that they wash the back side of the hands too.

Saline water gargles

If your child is old enough to do gargles, make sure he does it several times a day, especially during the episode of acute tonsillitis.

Adequate Rest

Plenty of rest is necessary for the child to fight infection. Make sure that the child gets good rest till the symptoms subside

Warm drinks to soothe

Giving them warm drinks like soup tea or hot milk can be very soothing when there is an acute inflammation of tonsils

    Dear Dr. Sharma,
    My son, who turns 3 in January is suffering from recurring Strep throat infection. The episodes started last July after he joined daycare in April and was like Strep was detected, 10 days of antibiotics, 2 weeks he would be fine and again the same cycle would reoccur. This happened in July, August, September, October after which he was sick due to fever but no Strep. However, he was diagnosed with Strep again last Friday 2nd Jan 2015. The Pediatrician has given up and ENT talks about tonsil removal.Amoxicillin does not work anymore and he is on Augmentin, ,Ventin .However he tests negative after antibiotic treatment. His tonsils are usually red and inflamed. He has a bad breadth and difficulty swallowing during the onset of the infection.
    I am looking up to homeopathy for long term treatment. Maybe taking him out of the School cum daycare could be a solution but he really enjoys school.
    What should be his treatment?Thanks.
