Are you wondering whether to take antibiotics for tonsil stones or not?
Are you still in a confusion that can antibiotics eliminate tonsil stones?
If Yes, in what cases should you take them?
On the other hand, if it is NO, Then why are some doctors still prescribing antibiotics like Amoxicillin?
The primary thing that Tonsil stones antibiotics do:
In general, the antibiotics given for tonsil stones sufferers are the penicillin drug antibiotics. Even the most popular amoxicillin is also a penicillin drug.
Now, you need to know what a penicillin drug actually is..
In general, what penicillin drugs do is interfering in the synthesis of the bacteria. They weaken the cell walls of the bacteria thus killing them within no time.
So, in simple Antibiotics given for tonsil stones, kill all the existing bacteria present on the tonsils and throat. In addition, they also stop the growth of bacteria on your tonsils thus making your tonsils, throat and mouth bacteria free. See The Natural way out for eliminating Tonsil stones completely
So, killing bacteria using antibiotics: Is this enough to eliminate Tonsil stones?
In order to answer this question, I need to answer another big doubt about tonsil stones.
Is bacteria build up the root cause of tonsil stones?
The answer to this is NO…
In my book Tonsil stones eliminator I mentioned that though many people think that bacteria is the root cause for one’s tonsil stones, the actual truth is completely different. In reality, the bacteria is just a promoter forming the stone but not the actual root cause of one’s tonsil stones.
Let me explain this briefly in one case..
We generally eat a variety of foods daily. So, when we eat, at times some of the particles of food doesn’t go inside and get stuck in the holes of your tonsils.
With days passing by, mucus, more food particles, etc accumulate forming a debris on the tonsils. Now, due to the accumulation, slowly bacteria acts on this debris, combine with it finally forming a tonsil stone one day. See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?
Normally this is one of the common cases that causes a tonsil stone..
So, In this case, Is bacteria the real cause of tonsil stones? Or the food particles and debris which accumulated a few weeks back. The answer to this is obviously the second one.
So, accordingly the answer to the question, “Is killing bacteria (using antibiotics) enough to eliminate tonsil stones” is NO.
This is because, even though antibiotics kill the bacteria present, they can’t eliminate the stuck food particles, debris on your tonsil crypts. In other words, it is the actual tonsil stone that is on the tonsils. So antibiotics can remove the developing bacteria but not the actual physical stone that is formed on your tonsils.
So, soon within few days, the existing stones again accumulate bacteria and cause the bad breath. See An almost Instant way to stop tonsil stones and its bad breath
3 Conditions when you can consider taking Antibiotics:
I have seen all the websites bombarding with the same information that antibiotics are waste, useless and should be avoided. I don’t know why they are doing it, maybe to increase their naturo product sales. Unlike them, we tonsilstoneremedies.net are giving honest solutions that really help people in real life. Thus you will not find this practical content anywhere else across the internet.
Though antibiotics can neither remove nor stop tonsil stones, they may be helpful in some cases to stop some extreme effects of tonsil stones. Some of them include..
1. To stop bacterial complication of tonsil stones:
Tonsil stones result in a lot of bacteria accumulation at the tonsils near the throat. This bacteria accumulation can increase day after day and can cause a number of bacterial infections in the throat and tonsils.
This includes sore throat, tonsillitis, and even strep throat. Thus by taking antibiotics, you are killing all the bacteria present and thus preventing several bacterial problems caused by tonsil stones. See The complex relation between Tonsil stones and being sick. Do they cause fatigue and sickness
2. Can be taken If you have pain and Tonsil infection:
Sometimes, when the tonsil stone remains unremoved for several days and weeks, the bacteria accumulated can dig deeper and start infecting the tonsil cells and tissue. This is what sometimes causes tonsil swelling and infection.
So in such cases, taking antibiotics can help you get rid of the pain and infection that is affecting you. See 4 ways you can reduce Tonsil stones ear pain
3. A temporary fix before tonsillectomy:
Not everyone, but in some extreme cases of tonsil stones, people prefer to undergo tonsillectomy. So in such cases, you may have to wait for weeks together to get your date fixed for the surgery.
So in such cases, you can take antibiotics as a temporary fix to control bacteria and to stop the increasing size of your tonsil stones. See Should I Get my Tonsils removed? Is it the best way out?
Drawbacks/Side effects of taking Antibiotics for Tonsil stones:
Every medicinal drug you take has some or the other side effects. The same is the case with the use of penicillin drug to kill bacteria. Some of the drawbacks or side effects of using antibiotics are –
Excess use may reduce effectiveness:
The more you use antibiotics for tonsilloliths the lesser will be its impact the next time. Yes, this is absolutely true and has been proved. So, even though if you see some results immediately as days pass by, antibiotics will have a very low impact on killing the tonsil stones bacteria.
Works only for bacteria:
One of the important things you need to remember with tonsil stones is that the food particle/debris in addition to the bacteria also accumulates a number of microbes. Now when you use tonsil stones antibiotics, they can only kill the bacteria and cannot even impact or kill other microbes like fungus (which is common).
So even though by using antibiotics you can control the bacterial complications like strep, tonsillitis, you cannot control problems caused by other microbes. See Are your Tonsil stones because of post nasal drip? Do this now
General Body problems:
Antibiotics, in addition, failing to eliminate tonsil stones, they tend to cause a number of side effects. This includes nausea, diarrhea, vomiting etc.
Bacteria is just a result of existing tonsil stones.
Just by killing the bacteria using antibiotics will have no affect on those yellowish irregular objects on your tonsil.
Within few weeks, these Tonsil stones will develop a series of spine-chilling symptoms like tonsil swelling, infections, ear pain and it becomes difficult to even swallow…
