Tonsil organs are present inside the throat between the oral cavity and the oral fatis. These tonsils tend to pick up infections from infected food or water that you consume. These organs can also get infected if you come in contact with those who have tonsil infection. Thus it is important to avoid eating foods from street vendors or open shops. You must avoid drinking water from taps and try to have only mineral water.
Single episodes of such infections can easily be cured by taking antibiotics or other supported medications and are hence not considered very serious. But in some of the cases, if these episodes keep occurring frequently then the tonsils can get infected and harbours organisms which can flair up when the immunity of the person drops. This can prove to be serious.
In case you experience tonsil infections on a regular basis, then the doctor may suggest you to undergo a surgery which is known as tonsillectomy. This surgical procedure helps to completely cure the condition so that the tonsils do not keep flaring up every now and then and is also the best solution for the problem of infections.
