Treatments of tonsillitis include three parts: tonsillectomy, antibiotics and at-home care. Tonsillectomy is a surgery to remove tonsils which may be used to treat frequently recurring tonsillitis, chronic tonsillitis or bacterial tonsillitis that doesn't respond to antibiotic treatment. Antibiotics, such as penicillin, will be prescribed if your tonsillitis is caused by a bacterial infection. At-home care plays a great role in the recovery of tonsillitis. The following are some at-home care strategies for tonsillitis:
  • Lots of bed rest.
  • Adequate fluids.
  • Comforting foods and beverage.
  • Humid air.
  • No irritants.
