About Acute And Chronic Tonsillitis

Acute and chronic tonsillitis occur when the lymph nodes located at the upper portion of the throat become inflamed and swollen. Tonsillitis may be either acute, meaning that it happens suddenly and lasts for a short time, or chronic, meaning that it persists over a period of time. Acute and chronic tonsillitis may be caused by an infection such as strep throat or other bacterial or viral infections. Acute and chronic tonsillitis can cause soreness/tenderness in the throat, fever, headaches, earaches, and difficult swallowing. Acute tonsillitis may be treated with medications, while chronic tonsillitis may require tonsillectomy surgery to take out the tonsils.
