Arlington Tonsillitis Treatment

Have You Noticed Swelling in Your Tonsils?

The tonsils are two small tissues located in the back of the mouth on either side of the uvula. They are usually somewhat hard to see, but when tonsillitis occurs they will become inflamed and more noticeable. Tonsillitis is a very common infection that can cause cold-like symptoms such as sore throat and fever.

At Urgentology Care in Arlington, we can diagnose and treat your tonsillitis today. We accept walk-ins, but you can also call us at (817) 799-7273 or contact us online.

What Are the Symptoms of Tonsillitis?

Tonsillitis is very common in children, although it can affect adults too. Tonsillitis is not usually a cause for concern, but a medical professional can help you manage the symptoms until it clears up.

Some symptoms of tonsillitis include:

  • Sore throat
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Swollen tonsils covered in white or red dots
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Chills
  • Swollen glands

You may be dealing with a more serious version of tonsillitis if you experience a fever over 103, a stiff neck, or symptoms that last for more than a few days.

Treatment Options

Many cases of tonsillitis will resolve on their own. Over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen can help you manage the symptoms. However, if the infection is bacterial, you will likely need an antibiotic to treat it. Most doctors will only recommend tonsil removal surgery for patients who experience tonsillitis several times a year or a few times a year for many consecutive years.
