Symptoms, treatment. The main symptoms are a tickle and smarting sensation in the throat, feeling of a foreign object in the tonsil area, bad breath, expectoration of soft, white masses that collect on the tonsils and steady minor pain while swallowing. Patients often suffer from a long-lasting subfebrility (for several weeks or months), impairment of work efficiency, headache and reflexive coughing. Some patients suffering from chronic tonsillitis do not express any complaints. Sometimes the disease leads to complications, diseases of the heart or joints, overall weakness or sweating. It can also lead to rheumatism or nephritis. Pharyngoscopy can disclose the following features of the chronic inflammatory process: the tonsils are distended, scarred, conjoined to the palatine arches; the tonsil surface is tuberous and the lacunae are extended. When tonsils are touched lightly with a tongue depressor, the lacunae exude a white mass or pus with an offensive smell. The mucous tunic of the front palatine arches is hyperemic, especially the loose edge. Nearby lymph nodes are usually enlarged and hurt while palpated. Tonsils of large size do not always indicate chronic tonsillitis (for children it is due to physiology). On the contrary, chronic inflammatory processes often originate in small tonsils. Chronic tonsillitis should be distinguished from pharyngomycosis.
The program takes about 35 min.
For a year after running the program, patients do not suffer from quinsy. Symptoms of chronic tonsillitis, such as pus in lacunae, hyperemia and edema of palatine arches, disappear. Tonsils return to their normal size or decrease in size significantly. Also, there is no indication of tonsil distension, hyperemia or cyanosis. The lymph nodes of the neck decrease in size significantly. In the course of the treatment, indications of tonsillar intoxication are eliminated.
