Not A-very-CUTE Tonsilitis

I was diagnosed with acute tonsilitis last weekend. Not a-cute as in adorable tonsilitis but in this case, acute refers to a rapid onset and/or a short course.
From wikipedia, the
"Symptoms of tonsillitis include a severe sore throat (which may be experienced as referred pain to the ears), painful/difficult swallowing, crouch coughing, headache, fever and chills. Tonsillitis is characterized by signs of red, swollen tonsils which may have a purulent exudative coating of white patches (i.e. pus). There may be enlarged and tender neck cervical lymph nodes."

Okay, I definitely have the severe sore throat - it makes it hard and painful to swollow my food and drinks. The headache makes a cameo once in a while and I have just recovered from the fever and chills.

Picture from : wikipedia


Thank God there's no pus on mine, kalau tak.. Eeeuuuuuu...

Anyhoots, I was prescribed the following by the good doctor:
1. Antibiotics : 8X CURAM 625mg tablet
2. For the swelling: 10 X Papase 150mg tablet
3. Gargling fluid
4. Paracetamol (for the fever)

Mom, on the other hand, prescribed me:
1. Air asam jawa, mixed with gula batu. Disejukkan sebentar and diminum beserta selawat.

Am on all the above course and I think the swelling has reduced somewhat. I still hurts when I try to swollow but at least it is manageable. The only thing is sometimes I don't feel like talking coz malas nak handle the pain. Makes me choose my conversations, somewhat. (Boleh?) Hmm.....

Lana,
Tu la pasal... I have always had sore throat before I demam.. But this time round, the sore throat become more sore after the demam.. Must be the weather and I am just thankful it wasn't worse. Setakat pedih2 sikit nak telan ni, I can endure sangat.. Imagine kalau keluar pus / white patches tu..
EEEeuuuuuuuuuu...

Dila, my son just did his tonsil remove; TONSILECTOMY, if u refer same wiki.He also got this ACUTE tonsilitis. My best advise,consistent with your antibiotic and take lotsa liquid. No spicy and hot (panas) food for time being..take care and speedy recovery.
