Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils. Clinically divided into acute and chronic two kinds, the main symptoms are fever, sore throat and throat discomfort. This disease can cause local or systemic complications such as ear, nose, heart, kidney and joint, so it should be paid attention to. The pathogeny of tonsillitis is mainly hemolytic streptococcus, and other such as Staphylococcus, pneumococcus, influenza bacilli and virus can also be caused.
Pathogens through afferent pathway of droplets, direct contact, usually hidden in the tonsillar crypts, when the body is due to exhaustion, cold or other reasons, the resistance weakened, the rapid propagation of pathogens caused by disease. Inflammation begins from the fossa and extends throughout the tonsil. Acute inflammation, tonsillar parenchyma with hyperemia, infiltration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in the mucosal surface, yellowish white spots. The tonsillar is obviously swollen and can form most of the small abscesses. The purulent exudates, such as cellulose, exfoliated epithelium and pyogenic cells, are discharged to the small fossa, so pyogenic point is seen in the tonsil fossa. The pathological changes of chronic inflammation were obvious, the proliferation of lymphocytes and reticular cells was active and the tonsils were hypertrophy. The thickening of the mucous epithelium of the fossa, excessive surface keratinization or small ulcers. Keratochemicals, inflammatory exudates, exfoliated epithelial cells, leukocytes, bacteria and other mixed forms of the embolus of the cheese, stuffed in the mouth of the fossa. Long term inflammation can cause small vessel occlusion in the tonsil, and lymphoid tissue degeneration, and gradually replace the connective tissue. After that, tonsils become smaller and smaller, and finally lead to tonsil fibrosis. The small fossa is narrowed because of scar, and its contents are difficult to exclude and often become the focus.

When the body is due to excessive fatigue, cold, local affected by physical or chemical factors, decreased resistance, reduce the blood supply, the tonsil gland secretion function decline, reduce the epithelial defense ability, namely the breeding of bacteria take advantage of a weak point, resulting in tonsillitis.
Tonsillitis also with the seasons, such as the winter season, weather is constantly changing, easy to cold, cold, so they are most likely to suffer from acute or chronic tonsillitis acute tonsillitis.

1, low resistance. When the body's resistance is low, it can easily lead to tonsillitis, such as children, patients with chronic diseases, and too much mental work.
2, its own Yin and yang imbalance, yin deficiency fire prosperity, very easy to fire.
3, when suffering from tonsillitis, it is accompanied by rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, nasopharyngitis and other chronic existence, and tonsillitis is very easy to relapse.
4, inflammation of adjacent organs and tissues, such as throat diseases, nasal diseases and ear diseases, may lead to the spread of inflammation to tonsils, causing tonsillitis.
5, other diseases of the body, such as bronchitis, tracheitis, pneumonia and other diseases, such as acute and chronic inflammation such as malnutrition, are also very easy to cause tonsillitis.
6. Persistent tonsillitis can cause tonsillar hypertrophy and cause chronic tonsillitis. Despite the use of antibiotics, the tonsils can still be reinfected.
7, bacteria, viruses, usually the most fundamental cause of tonsillitis is bacteria, viruses, and the most common cause of tonsillitis is Streptococcus.
8, seasonal factors, usually tonsillitis disease, and the season also have a certain relationship, such as the change of the seasons, the temperature fluctuation is too large, resulting in abnormal body immunity, finally induced tonsillitis.
9, when suffering from tonsillitis, if there are some factors to decrease the resistance, such as cold, damp, fatigue, malnutrition, such as colds, tonsillitis and other cases can cause relapse.
If your life is above these causes, your body will be a problem has occurred, and very likely has been suffering from tonsillitis, so everyone should go to develop good habits, so not only can prevent the occurrence of tonsillitis, also can let you have a healthy body.
