Tonsillitis Treatment Options:

Depending on the cause of the inflammation will determine the treatment options for your tonsillitis. A viral infection cannot be treated with antibiotics but rather through rest, certain foods and fluids to reel the virus out. If the infection is bacterial it can be treated with antibiotics as well as at home care. If the tonsillitis is recurrent over time or if the tonsils become enlarged causing upper airway obstruction, then surgery may be necessary.
