The tonsils are the immune system’s first line of defense against bacteria and viruses. Hence they remain particularly vulnerable to infection and inflammation. Tonsillitis commonly affects children between preschool & mid-teenage years.

What is Tonsillitis?

Tonsils are two masses of tissue located at the back of the throat. They act as filters, trapping germs that could otherwise enter our airway and cause infection. They also produce antibodies to fight infection. But sometimes the tonsils themselves become infected. Overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses, they swell and become inflamed. This condition is known as tonsillitis. It is contagious in nature.

Tonsillitis has been divided into three types, with respect to their symptoms and recovery time.

  • Acute Tonsillitis: is when its symptoms usually last around 3-4 days but can linger on for 2 weeks
  • Chronic Tonsillitis: is when the condition results in an ongoing sore throat and bad breath for over 2weeks
  • Recurrent Tonsillitis: is when a person experiences acute tonsillitis many times per year

Causes and Risk
Factors of Tonsillitis


Viruses like Adenovirus, Rhinovirus, Influenza, Coronavirus and Respiratory Syncytial Virus are responsible for Tonsillitis

Other viral infections caused by Epstein-Barr virus, herpes simplex virus & cytomegalovirus can cause Tonsillitis

Due to bacterial infection (e.g. strep throat because of Streptococcus), Tonsillitis may happen

Young age, especially children below 15 years are more vulnerable to get affected by Tonsillitis

Due to viral respiratory tract infections (common cold, sore throat, flu, SARS, etc.), it may happen

Exposure to people with contagious respiratory tract infections can spread the infection
