I have a sore throat, swollen glands, white spots only on one side, what can I do?

Soothe your sore throat with the following home remedies -

  • Salt water gargles is the best remedy to heal sore throat. Do this thrice daily and especially in the night before sleeping.
  • Add ¼ tsp turmeric powder in a cup of boiling milk and a pinch of salt. Drink twice daily, every morning and night.
  • Make an herbal tea by adding grated ginger, mint leaves, holy basil, pepper and honey in water. Drink just an ounce of this tea to soothe your tonsillitis.
  • Avoid sour, spicy, oily/fried foods, cold water/cold foods, carbonated drinks, alcohol or cigarette as they further tend to irritate the throat. Choose hot vegetable soup or chicken broths to soothe your throat.

White spots on tonsils can be due to deposition of skin cells or inner mucosa, food material or bacteria in the crypts of tonsils (tonsils have pits or little craters) or spots of pus accumulated on your tonsils. Maintain appropriate oral hygiene to avoid its further development. If you see tiny white stones on the tonsils or feel pain then it is advisable to consult a specialist for medical assistance.
