Do you want to get well soon and return to a normal lifestyle? Limit yourself to the use of certain products, and sore throat will pass faster and without consequences.
What should be avoided in acute tonsillitis?
Sweet. First of all, forget sugary foods and drinks for a while. They contain glucose, which settles on the walls of the throat and creates an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Honey is a great alternative to sugar. Add it to warm (by no means hot!) tea or simply dissolve it with water.
Spicy, spicy, sour, salty. Avoid harsh tastes. They irritate the throat and provoke swelling of the mucosa. Famous folk healers, lemon and garlic, also fall into this category. Use them in limited quantities.
Carbonated drinks. They are also an additional irritant for the pharyngeal mucosa.
Dairy. Milk, cheese, and other dairy products can cause mucus to build up in the throat and lungs and set the stage for infection and inflammation.
Hot drinks. They burn the throat, which aggravates the disease and its symptoms. In the treatment of severe sore throat, the drink should be warm, but in no case hot.
Rough and hard foods. Give up coarse cereals, bread, toast, croutons, crackers and dryers. Such food is irritating and leaves small scratches on swollen and inflamed tissues.
