Q.

Tonsils, Bad Breath & Younger Baby

Dear Doc

Please help.

My daughter is 6 years old and was just diagnosed with tonsilitis.

He warned me to keep her clear from my 14 month old son, but how?
He loves her to bits! Can I boost his immune system to prevent him from getting sick as well?

And then - he breath is smelling on the less fresh side - is it because of the tonsils?

How soon can tonsilitis reccur?

Regards

Tonsillitis is very often caused by a germ called strep. This is very catchy. It is very possible that your son now has the same problem.
