Tonsils trap germs that could otherwise enter your airways and cause infection. They also produce antibodies to fight infection. But sometimes the tonsils themselves become infected. Overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses, they swell and become inflamed, a condition known as tonsillitis. The tonsils try to fight viruses and bacteria that enter through our mouth and nose. But living a stressful life can lead to depression and poor immune function, which makes people easily infected by bacteria or viruses. Keeping a good mood is very important for your health.
