Reason for Tonsillitis
Tonsils are a part of our immune system and they are capable of producing some kinds of disease-fighting white blood corpuscles. They defend our bodies against viruses and bacteria that enter through the mouth. But, at the same time, they are vulnerable to infections and inflammation caused by these bacteria and virus. Since, the functions of the tonsils as part of the immune system comes to an end after puberty, there are very few instances of tonsillitis amongst adults.
