Tonsillitis is an infection of the tonsils, which are small lymph nodes located in the back of the throat. It is typically caused by a viral infection, but it can also be caused by bacteria.


The most common causes are:

  1. Viral infections, such as the common cold or flu

  2. Bacteria, such as streptococcus

People who are more likely to develop tonsillitis include:

  • Those who have weakened immune systems, such as children, and older adults.

  • People who have allergies or other respiratory conditions may also be more prone to developing tonsillitis.

There are several factors that can increase the risk of developing tonsillitis, including:

  • Close contact with someone who has tonsillitis

  • Poor hygiene, such as not washing hands frequently

  • Dry air, can irritate the tonsils and make them more susceptible to infection

  • Smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke, can irritate the tonsils and increase the risk of infection.


  • Sore throat: Tonsillitis can cause a painful, scratchy sensation in the throat.

  • Difficulty swallowing: Swallowing may be difficult or uncomfortable due to inflammation and swelling of the tonsils.

  • Fever: Tonsillitis can cause a fever, which is a sign of an infection.

  • Swollen tonsils: The tonsils may appear red and swollen, and may have white or yellow patches on them.

  • Headache: A headache may be present with tonsillitis.

  • Fatigue: Tonsillitis can cause feelings of tiredness and lack of energy.

  • Bad breath: Tonsillitis can cause bad breath due to the presence of bacteria in the mouth.
