The most common way to deal with tonsillitis is surgery. But before deciding on surgery , there are several ways you can do it yourself at home to relieve tonsillitis, using natural ingredients .
 
Inflammation of tonsils or tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils that can be caused by influenza viruses or Streptrococcus bacteria. Even though it is painful and annoying, tonsillitis usually does not cause dangerous complications.


Various Ways to Reduce Tonsillitis

Handling tonsillitis depends on the cause. Inflammation of the tonsils is characterized by symptoms of sore throat, difficulty swallowing, fever, and enlarged and reddish tonsils. If there are no other conditions, tonsillitis will usually heal itself after 3-4 days.
 
To relieve complaints and symptoms of tonsillitis, you can do the following methods:

Gargling with salt water can relieve sore throat in tonsillitis. You can mix ½ teaspoon of salt with 1/2 cup (120 ml) of warm water, as a mouthwash.
 

2. Eat soft or cold foods

When experiencing tonsillitis, you are advised to eat soft or cold foods, such as ice cream, pudding, juice, yogurt, and smoothies . If possible, you can also use ice cubes or lozenges.
 

3. Install the humidifier
