Western Diagnosis

Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, located on either side of the entrance to the throat. Generally the inflammation is caused by bacteria (in particular Streptococcus) but it may also be caused by viral infection.

Tonsillitis is most common in children, but it can occur in adults, signalling that the body's resistance to disease is lower than it should be.

The symptoms of tonsillitis include: coughing, earache, headache, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, fever and/or chills, nausea and vomiting, nasal obstruction and discharge, englarged lymph nodes and swelling of the tonsils.
