Tonsillitis - Symptoms

Tonsillitis most commonly affects children between preschool and mid-teenage years.

Common signs and symptoms of tonsillitis are as follows:

  • red, swollen tonsils
  • white or yellow coating on tonsils
  • patches on tonsils
  • sore throat
  • pain while swallowing
  • fever
  • an itchy throat or a muffled voice
  • bad breath
  • headache
  • enlarged, tender glands (lymph nodes) in the neck
  • possible irritability or a poor appetite among children too young to express themselves

There are two types of tonsillitis:

  1. recurrent tonsillitis, in which multiple episodes of acute tonsillitis occur in a year, with each episode lasting for 4 to 10 days.
  2. chronic tonsillitis, in which episodes last longer than acute tonsillitis, with other symptoms like chronic sore throat, bad breath and tender lymph nodes in the neck.
