If you are having difficulty in swallowing, breathing or talking you should consult an ENT specialist immediately. However, here are a few good tips for alleviating your Tonsillitis, at home.
Gargle Daily â€“ Use lukewarm salt water to gargle many times in a day. Alternatively, boil one glass of water with one teaspoon fenugreek seeds. Gargle with this water when it is warm.
Drink Fluids – Drink juices of carrot, beetroot, and cucumber in the ratio 3:1:1. Try hot green teas with honey, and clear soups. For some people, cold liquids help numb the throat.
Use Lemon - Apply some salt and black pepper on half a piece of lemon. Press it with a fork so that the salt-pepper mixture penetrates into the lime. Keep the lemon on heat for 2 minutes to make it warm. Squeeze the juice into a small glass and sip it slowly. You may do this two to three times a day.
Be Hygienic - Wash your hands properly before and after having food. Brush your teeth at night, too. If you are suffering from a disease like tonsillitis, you should keep good hygiene.
Avoid Irritable Food – Don’t drink sour drinks and try to avoid spicy food as it may irritate your throat. Sour substances like curds, buttermilk, and fried foods should be avoided.
Talk Less - Give plenty of rest to your throat and try not to talk too much.
Please see a Doctor, if the condition persists.
