Tonsillitis

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

It is a health problem a lot of people face, and the treatment depends on the patient: tonsillitis.

Denise Jackson is treating tonsillitis an infection of the tonsils.

Symptoms include a very sore throat, fever, "hot potato" voice that sounds muffled, difficulty with swallowing and opening the jaw or mouth fully.

Gargling regularly and routine hand washing/germ prevention may help.

Once an individual has one or two episodes removal of the tonsils, "tonsillectomy," is warranted.
