Friends today I am discussing about a very common problem occurs in change of weather known as tonsillitis. What is tonsillitis? Tonsils are the two lymph nodes located on each side of the back of your throat. They function as a defense mechanism. They help prevent your body from infection. When the tonsils become infected, the condition is called tonsillitis. Tonsillitis can occur at any age and is a common childhood infection. It is most often diagnosed in children from preschool age through their midteens. Symptoms include a sore throat, swollen tonsils, and fever. This condition is contagious and can be caused by a variety of common viruses and bacteria, such as Streptococcal bacteria, which causes strep throat. Tonsillitis caused by strep throat can lead to serious complications if left untreated. Tonsillitis is easily diagnosed. Symptoms usually go away within 7 to 10 days. Find a internist or a pediatrician or an ENT near you. Causes of tonsillitis Tonsils are your first line of defense against illness. They produce white blood cells to help your body fight infection. The tonsils combat bacteria and viruses that enter your body through your mouth. However, tonsils are also vulnerable to infection from these invaders. Tonsillitis can be caused by a virus, such as the common cold, or by a bacterial infection, such as strep throat. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), an estimated 15 to 30 percent of tonsillitis cases are due to bacteria. Most often it's strep bacteria. Viruses are the most common cause of tonsillitis. The Epstein-Barr virus can cause tonsillitis, which can also cause mononucleosis. Children come into close contact with others at school and play, exposing them to a variety of viruses and bacteria. This makes them particularly vulnerable to the germs that cause tonsillitis. Symptoms of tonsillitis There are several types of tonsillitis, and there are many possible symptoms that include: a very sore throat difficulty swallowing or painful swallowing a scratchy-sounding voice bad breath fever chills earaches stomachaches headaches a stiff neck jaw and neck tenderness due to swollen lymph nodes tonsils that appear red and swollen tonsils that have white or yellow spots In very young children, you may also notice increased irritability, poor appetite, or excessive drooling. There are two types of tonsillitis: recurrent tonsillitis: multiple episodes of acute tonsillitis a year chronic tonsillitis: episodes last longer than acute tonsillitis in addition to other symptoms that include: chronic sore throat bad breath, or halitosis tender lymph nodes in the neck When to see a doctor In rare cases, tonsillitis can cause the throat to swell so much that it causes trouble breathing. If this happens, seek immediate medical attention. See a doctor if you experience the following symptoms: fever that’s higher than 103˚F (39.5°C) muscle weakness neck stiffness sore throat that doesn’t go away after two days While some tonsillitis episodes go away on their own, some may require other treatments. How tonsillitis is diagnosed Diagnosis is based on a physical examination of your throat. Your doctor may also take a throat culture by gently swabbing the back of your throat. The culture will be sent to a laboratory to identify the cause of your throat infection. Treatment for tonsillitis A mild case of tonsillitis does not necessarily require treatment, especially if a virus, such as a cold, causes it. Treatments for more severe cases of tonsillitis may include antibiotics or a tonsillectomy. Antibiotics will be prescribed to fight a bacterial infection. It’s important you complete the full course of antibiotics. Your doctor may want you to schedule a follow-up visit to ensure that the medication was effective. Surgery to remove the tonsils is called a tonsillectomy. This was once a very common procedure. However, tonsillectomies today are only recommended for people who experience chronic or recurrent tonsillitis. Surgery is also recommend to treat tonsillitis that doesn’t respond to other treatment, or tonsillitis that causes complications. If a person becomes dehydrated due to tonsillitis, they may need intravenous fluids. Pain medicines to relieve the sore throat can also help while the throat is healing. Home care tips to ease a sore throat drink plenty of fluids get lots of rest gargle with warm salt water several times a day use throat lozenges use a humidifier to moisten the air in your home avoid smoke Also, you may want to use over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Always check with your doctor before giving medications to children. Tonsillitis complications People who experience chronic tonsillitis may start to experience obstructive sleep apnea. This happens when the airway swells and prevents a person from sleeping well. It’s also possible the infection will worsen and spread to other areas of the body. This is known as tonsillar cellulitis. The infection can also cause a person to develop a buildup of pus behind the tonsils, which is known as peritonsillar abscess. This can require drainage and more surgery. If a person doesn’t take a full course of antibiotics or the antibiotics don’t kill off the bacteria, it’s possible a person could develop complications. These include rheumatic fever and poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. Preventing tonsillitis Tonsillitis is highly contagious. To decrease your risk of getting tonsillitis, stay away from people who have active infections. Wash your hands often, especially after coming into contact with someone who has a sore throat, or is coughing or sneezing. If you have tonsillitis, try to stay away from others until you are no longer contagious. Outlook for tonsillitis Swollen tonsils may cause difficulty breathing, which can lead to disturbed sleep. Tonsillitis left untreated can result in the infection spreading to the area behind the tonsils or to the surrounding tissue. Symptoms of tonsillitis caused by a bacterial infection usually improve a few days after you begin taking antibiotics. Strep throat is considered contagious until you have been taking antibiotics for a 24-hour period. Strep Throat Strep throat is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation and pain in the throat. This common condition is caused by group A Streptococcus… Diphtheria Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that affects the throat and nose. Get the facts on causes, symptoms, treatment, and prevention. What’s the Difference Between Tonsillitis and Strep Throat? Tonsillitis can be caused by various viruses or bacteria. Strep throat is only caused by group A Streptococcus bacteria. Tonsillectomy A tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils, which are located in the back of your throat.

4 Common Causes Of Tonsillitis You Must Know india.curejoy.com Aug 8, 2017 12:00 PM ￼ Tonsillitis is usually caused by the common cold and influenza viruses and bacteria like group A streptococcus. Fungi and parasites are also known offenders among people with weakened immunity. The infection spreads when you come in contact with someone already infected with cold and flu, and smoking can make you prone to recurrent tonsillitis. Have cold food and try salt water gargle for relief. A fussy child with a sore throat and high temperature is every parent’s nightmare, especially if it turns out to be tonsillitis. While less common, a case of adult tonsillitis is no fun either. Your tonsils, which are lymph nodes in the upper part of your throat and behind your mouth, help prevent infection by trapping and filtering out harmful germs before they can reach other parts of your body. Inflammation of your tonsils or tonsillitis can lead to trouble swallowing, coughing, headache, and earache. It usually resolves on its own in 3 to 4 days. You need to, however, see a doctor if your symptoms continue for longer than 4 days without improvement or you experience severe symptoms like trouble breathing or extreme pain that makes it difficult for you to eat or drink. So how do you get a bout of tonsillitis? Causes Of Tonsillitis 1. Viruses The most common cause of tonsillitis is a viral infection. Some viruses which cause this condition include: Rhinoviruses, which are also responsible for the common cold.Influenza viruses, which also cause influenza.Parainfluenza viruses, which also cause conditions like croup and laryngitis.Enteroviruses, which can also lead to hand-foot-and-mouth disease, an illness common in small children that causes mouth ulcers and spots on the feet and hands.Adenoviruses, which commonly cause diarrhea.Rubeola virus, which is responsible for measles.Epstein-Barr virus, which also causes glandular fever. However, cases of tonsillitis caused by this virus are rare. If this virus is responsible, you’re likely to feel extremely ill and experience symptoms like swollen lymph glands in your throat, a sore throat, tiredness, and fever. 2. Bacteria Around 15% of infections in the tonsils are caused by bacteria. And though many kinds of bacteria can cause tonsillitis, group A streptococcus bacteria is the usual culprit. This is the same bacteria that cause strep throat. Bacterial infections like rheumatic fever and diphtheria which were associated with tonsillitis in the past have become rare now as these infections are vaccinated against and medical treatments for them have improved significantly. 3. Fungi And Parasites Fungi and parasites can also cause tonsillitis but this is rare in people with healthy immune systems. 4. Smoking According to research, people who smoke may be more likely to encounter recurrent tonsillitis. Smoking reduces salivary flow, decreases the immunity provided by mucous, and affects the good bacterial balance (oral microflora) adversely. It is thought that unfavorable impact of smoking on these protective factors could lead to the development of more tonsillar infections. Tonsillitis Can Be Transmitted Tonsillitis is usually caused by common viruses such as those that lead to the common cold or flu. And you can catch these viruses by coming in close contact with someone who’s infected. When an infected person sneezes or coughs, they expel millions of small respiratory droplets contaminated with the virus through their mouth and nose. Breathing in these droplets can transmit the infection to you. You can also catch the infection by touching a surface on which contaminated respiratory droplets have landed and then touching your face. Home Remedies For Tonsillitis Tonsillitis may not require any treatment if you are not in pain or facing any other problems. Your doctor may do a swab test and antibiotics may be prescribed if your tonsillitis is caused by bacteria. And in case you have recurrent infections, a tonsillectomy, surgery to remove your tonsils, may also be advised. While over-the-counter medication can be useful in treating fever and pain, a few other tips can ease your discomfort. Do make sure that you do not use aspirin to treat children under the age of 16 as it has been linked to a dangerous condition known as Reye syndrome. Here’s what you can do at home for relief: 1. Eat Or Drink Something Cold Having something cold can soothe an inflamed throat so suck on a frozen fruit pop or drink something cold to ease your sore throat. 2. Have Fluids Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Being dehydrated can worsen other symptoms like headaches. 3. Try A Salt Water Gargle Mix half a teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of warm water and use as a gargle to soothe your throat. But do keep in mind that this remedy might not be suitable for small children as they may swallow the gargle. Report a problemDr. Tapan Kumar Sau2 Likes5 Answers

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR HAIR LOSS AND BALDNESS ￼ Hair loss can affect just your scalp or your entire body. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the treatments available to prevent further hair loss and to restore growth. Causes--Most people normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day. This usually doesn't cause noticeable thinning of scalp hair because new hair is growing in at the same time. Hair loss occurs when this cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue. The exact cause of hair loss may not be fully understood, but it's usually related to one or more of the following factors: · Family history (heredity) · Hormonal changes · Medical conditions · Medications Family history (heredity) The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It usually occurs gradually and in predictable patterns — a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair in women. Heredity also affects the age at which you begin to lose hair, the rate of hair loss and the extent of baldness. Pattern baldness is most common in men and can begin as early as puberty. This type of hair loss may involve both hair thinning and miniaturization (hair becomes soft, fine and short). Hormonal changes and medical conditions A variety of conditions can cause hair loss, including: Hormonal changes. Hormonal changes and imbalances can cause temporary hair loss. This could be due to pregnancy, childbirth or the onset of menopause. Hormone levels are also affected by the thyroid gland, so thyroid problems may cause hair loss. Patchy hair loss. This type of nonscarring hair loss is called alopecia areata (al-o-PEE-she-uh ar-e-A-tuh). It occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles — causing sudden hair loss that leaves smooth, roundish bald patches on the skin. Scalp infections. Infections, such as ringworm, can invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to scaly patches and hair loss. Once infections are treated, hair generally grows back. Other skin disorders. Diseases that cause scarring alopecia may result in permanent loss at the scarred areas. These conditions include lichen planus, some types of lupus and sarcoidosis. Hair-pulling disorder. This condition, also called trichotillomania , causes people to have an irresistible urge to pull out their hair, whether it's from the scalp, the eyebrows or other areas of the body. Medications Hair loss can be caused by drugs used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure and birth control. Intake of too much vitamin A may cause hair loss as well. Other causes of hair loss Hair loss can also result from: Radiation therapy to the head. The hair may not grow back the same as it was before. A trigger event. Many people experience a general thinning of hair several months after a physical or emotional shock. This type of hair loss is temporary. Examples of trigger events include sudden or excessive weight loss, a high fever, surgery, or a death in the family. Certain hairstyles and treatments. Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows, can cause traction alopecia. Hot oil hair treatments and permanents can cause inflammation of hair follicles that leads to hair loss. If scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent. Symptoms-Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what's causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually and affect just your scalp or your whole body. Some types of hair loss are temporary, and others are permanent. Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include: Gradual thinning on top of head. This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede from the forehead in a line that resembles the letter M. Women typically retain the hairline on the forehead but have a broadening of the part in their hair. Circular or patchy bald spots. Some people experience smooth, coin-sized bald spots. This type of hair loss usually affects just the scalp, but it sometimes also occurs in beards or eyebrows. In some cases, your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out. Sudden loosening of hair. A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning and not bald patches. Full-body hair loss. Some conditions and medical treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer, can result in the loss of hair all over your body. The hair usually grows back. Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp. This is a sign of ringworm. It may be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling and, at times, oozing. ￼Risk factors--A number of factors can increase your risk of hair loss, including: · Family history · Age · Poor nutrition · Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes and lupus · Stress HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES Homoeopathic remedies are very effective for baldness and that can promote hair growth.

Signs And Symptoms Of Tonsillitis To Watch For india.curejoy.com Oct 17, 2017 12:00 PM ￼ ￼ Tonsillitis can leave you feeling tired from a painful sore throat. This is often accompanied by flu-like symptoms such as a runny nose, fever, and sore eyes. Your inflamed and swollen tonsils can also cause bad breath, dehydration, earache, and difficulty swallowing. Little children may become irritable and refuse food due to the pain from swallowing. Learn to watch for these symptoms, especially a high fever or signs of dehydration or excessive drooling in young children, so you can get them timely help and ease their discomfort. Tonsillitis is one of the most common illnesses among children, teens, and young adults. Unfortunately, a lot of the symptoms of tonsillitis can be confused for a cough or flu and left untreated. So how do you spot the signs? Whether you’re reeling from inflamed tonsils due to a viral or bacterial infection, it is possible to identify the problem – just watch for early signs and get treated before it becomes too painful to bear! Inflammation Of The Tonsils With Classic Symptoms Located at the rear of your throat, your tonsils are soldiers in your body’s lymphatic system, helping rid the body of infection and maintaining the delicate balance of body fluids. They act as traps for germs that enter the body via the nose and mouth, drawing them in and preventing them from spreading to other parts of the body where they might cause more damage. Tonsillitis strikes when your tonsils are inflamed, causing them to swell up. The result is a host of classic tonsillitis symptoms that you can learn to spot quite easily. If you have young kids at home, this is something you’ll soon be quite adept at because they’re especially prone to the problem! Sore Throat If a sore throat is moderate to severe and doesn’t go away after a couple of days, watch for other signs of inflammation of the tonsils. You might first notice your tonsillitis because of a sore throat. Because this sore throat is often brought on by the streptococcus bacteria, it’s often called a “strep throat.” You will typically be given antibiotics to treat the problem. If the doctor finds that your tonsillitis is due to a virus, you won’t need antibiotics, but it helps to drink lots of water, rest your voice, and take a mild over-the-counter painkiller if you’re troubled by the pain or soreness. Muffled Or Hoarse Voice Besides the sore throat, if your tonsils are really swollen and obstruct the throat, your voice tends to change a little. A muffled voice or one that is hoarse is not uncommon. Some people complain of losing their voice altogether for a bit. Acute tonsillitis doesn’t normally cause as severe a change in voice as other conditions like a pus-filled abscess in the tonsils due to untreated tonsillitis. Painful, Swollen, Red Tonsils When bacteria and viruses overwhelm the tissue of the tonsils, they become inflamed. And inflamed tonsils tend to swell up as a result of this and are usually painful. Your tonsils, if examined by you or your doctor, will typically be reddish. Earache An earache is also a common symptom of tonsillitis. If your tonsils become enlarged, you could also have recurrent ear infections. Are you also finding it hard or painful to swallow? Is your throat sore? If you do have these problems, that earache could well be the result of a throat infection like tonsillitis. White Patches On Tonsils Your tonsils develop a white or yellowish white coating when you have tonsilitis. In some cases, the tonsils could also have white pus-filled spots. Fever Of Over 100.4℉ Tonsillitis is caused by an underlying infection, whether viral or bacterial. Because your body is fighting off the microbes, it can bring on a fever. If you detect a high fever of over 100.4℉ along with other respiratory symptoms, it may indicate a viral inflammation of the tonsils. If the fever is sudden and the tonsils are swollen, but you don’t have any other signs of an upper respiratory tract infection, you may have bacterial tonsil trouble. Bad Breath Whether you have acute tonsillitis or chronic tonsillitis, you should watch for signs of bad breath. The foul breath can become an ongoing issue if you have chronic tonsillitis and may lead to halitosis or persistent bad breath. Bacteria that cause tonsillitis thrive on the mucus produced due to the infection and bring about that unpleasant stink. Trouble Swallowing When you have a case of acute tonsillitis, you may experience some issues with swallowing. Difficulty swallowing, also known as dysphagia, as well as odynophagia or experiencing pain when you swallow, are common complaints. Dehydration If you don’t take care to keep up your intake of fluids and water, you could end up dehydrated from tonsillitis. Watch for signs of dehydration like urinating less often than you usually do or a tongue and mouth that feel dry and parched. Strep throat caused by bacteria may also cause you a break-out of tiny red hemorrhagic spots called petechiae on your soft palate. They may be as tiny as a pinpoint or as large as a pinhead.
