My 15 year old daughter always gets sick. When I take her to the doctor, every time he used to say it as viral infection. This is the fifth time in a year she has been sick with the same symptoms. Her symptoms are cough, low fever, sore throat and yellowish white colored mucus covering her tonsils and back of throat. Are these the signs of tonsil infection? Should her tonsils get removed?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Let me first enlighten you about tonsils.
1. Eating more chocolates or ice creams.
2. Dental and oral hygiene.
Throat swab and culture or RADT (rapid antigen detecting test).Probable diagnosis:
URTI (upper respiratory tract infection).Treatment plan:
If culture is positive then I suggest Tablet Amoxicillin 625 mg twice daily or tablet Amoxicillin 500 mg thrice daily for 10 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.Preventive measures:
1. Repeated salt water gargling.
2. Maintain oral hygiene.
3. No high carb diets like ice creams and chocolates.
