Homeopathy Treatment for tonsillitis

Tonsillitis (med. Angina tonsillaris) is an infection of the tonsils. It is independent of age and is often caused by viruses in children and mostly by bacteria in adults. The disease is transmitted via droplet infection and is contagious. Tonsillitis can be chronic or acute and a distinction is made between unilateral and bilateral inflammation. Homeopathic remedies have proven effective in relieving the symptoms of tonsillitis.
