These two balls of tissue help in preventing infection and disease. However, at times, these tonsils get inflamed due to bacterial or viral infection, causing Tonsillitis. This disease is quite common in children and is often accompanied by fever.


The most common cause of tonsillitis is bacterial or viral infection. This infection is primarily caused due to excessive intake of fried, greasy foods, chocolates, sweets, spices, white flour products, cold and frozen foods.
