Tonsils are part of the lymphatic system that help the body fight infections. They are the first to fight with micro-organisms present in the air and other harmful substances, but sometimes they can become inflamed and cause health problems. Here are the three most commonly present.
- Bad breath
According to certain data, half of the world’s population suffers from bad breath. Ninety percent of cases are caused by problems in the oral cavity itself, such as poor oral hygiene or saliva flow, and bad breath can be a consequence of collected stones in the tonsils. Tonsils are filled with cracks in which bacteria, dead cells and mucus are collected. Therefore, white deposits are often produced that often contain sulfur which causes bad breath. You wonder what the solution is? Good oral hygiene in addition to brushing teeth twice a day, as well as making gargle with antiseptic, can help remove accumulated deposits.
- Painful swallowing
In most cases, the tonsils are small and do not cause inconvenience. But if they are larger, it can make your swallowing painful and feel like having a needle in your throat. Therefore, if you notice something like this in this way, then try to make gargoyles with salt water. But if it comes to the presence of larger stones, then you will need to consult a doctor.
Increased tonsils may be the cause of snoring. This happens because the air can not pass normally through the airways. Snoring may be boring, but it is usually not harmful unless accompanied by sleep problems. Increased tonsils often can cause snoring of young children, and 4 out of 100 men and 2 out of 100 women suffer from sleep problems caused by raised tonsils. They may increase as a result of congenital health disorders, chronic infections, and other factors. If the situation is serious, the doctor may suggest their removal.
