  • Swollen Tonsil

    I get swollen tonsils almost once every 2 months, usually when I am lack of sleep. Anyone has the same problem ? Anyway to help ? I know I need to get enough sleep and rest but that is not always possible with 2 very active toddlers.

    I am terrified of removing my tonsils. Thinking of trying acupuncture. Anyone tried bedore ?

    eeeks! we have the same problem! my tonsils flare up once every 3 months when there's lack of sleep / talk too much (i'm a teacher) / eat oily stuff

    it's annoying and painful!

    the doctor advised me to remove them when i was in sec 2 (24 this yr) but i refused.

    is there any way to prevent our tonsils from being so bad? i heard it's good to take vit C regularly. there's also this thing called 'peng da hai' which u can get from the medical hall. it's said to be cooling. u can find that in cheng tng too. it's the brown jelly-like substance

      Finally found someone with the same problem.

      I have been drinking at least 2 cups of fresh watermelon juice a day, it is cooling and has vitamin C, so it seems to help.

      I guess the only way is to fix the root cause, which is get enough sleep ! But that is easier said than done !

        ive been to the docs for this before, they adviced to remove the tonsils, but I didnt cos I was afraid my voice would be different..
        its so much more paiful then soar throat, but if it occuresto often, i'll just have to remove them..

          i also have sore throat once every 2 months...hmm...it looks like tonsilitis is a very common prob. i think we just have to eat more fruits and drink more water to clear the toxins from our systems. that does help i think and get enough rest...and don't shout too much at the kids in class...muhahaha

            i used to have this problem in my teens/early 20s, even 3 pieces of durian would result in a sore throat, it was just so absolutely annoying. on a doc's advice, i removed them. most fantastic decision i ever made! its been wonderful since the surgery done 12 years ago, hardly any sore throats and the frequency of falling ill has been reduced by more than two thirds. i would encourage you girls to remove them if the doc has advised it.

                Tonsil infection

                Hi cotters,

                my bf has tonsil infection and it's hurting him a lot. Anyone facing the same infection? Any way to lessen the pain?

                  eclipsepmint,

                  Try manuka honey UMF 20 and propolis. The proplis must get those with higer percentage type. Mix 8 drops of propolis into 1 tbsp of manuka honey and consume it everymorning and night without water. My hb used to have tonsil and high fever will always come along so after trying the honey+propolis, he does not get tonsil infection anymore. But when he think his throat is getting dryer, he'll take the honey + propolis and next day the dryness is gone. Hths!

                      Oh same same. I am having these prob since pri sch. Has been 20 odd yrs. Recently was recommended by fren to try out colostrum. It works for me. Whenever I feel my throat sore, I'll take 2-4 capsules base on d severity. Next day b good again!
