Acute tonsillitis in a 10-year-old Girl!!
Hello, my friend's daughter is a 10 year-old girl. She has a 3-week history of sore throat leading to significantly decreased oral intake. She reports progressive worsening of a painful sore throat resulting in avoidance of nearly all oral intake. She had lost 22-lb weight also. How to cure her acute tonsillitis?
@pipi If you have a virus, antibiotics won't help, and your body will fight the infection on its own. In the meantime, you can try some home remedies:
Get lots of rest
Drink warm or very cold fluids to help with throat pain
Eat smooth foods, such as flavored gelatins, ice cream, and applesauce
Use a cool-mist vaporizer or humidifier in your room
Gargle with warm salt water
Suck on lozenges with benzocaine or other medications to numb your throat
Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
