  1. ACUTE TONSILLITIS: Tonsillitis is said to be acute if symptoms persist for more than ten days. Symptoms of this category are usually treated with home remedies; use of lozenges, salt water gargle, tea with honey, use of antibiotics and analgesics, etc.
  2. CHRONIC TONSILLITIS: This occurs when symptoms re-occur severally during the month/year. This produces tonsil stones — A condition where materials like dead cells, saliva, and food build up in crevices of your tonsils. This is also referred to as re-current tonsillitis. The approved method of treatment of this type is TONSILLECTOMY. Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of affected tonsils.
