White Angina: Repetitive angina

If the pain persists or if the white tonsillitis tend to return repeatedly, it is advisable to consult your GP or even an ENT, in order to be treated without delay. From the basic treatment to the removal of the tonsils (partial or total), the proposed panel of solutions is wide.

It is essential to consult and treat a white angina. Untreated bacterial tonsillitis (Streptococcus) can lead to complications such as heart or kidney disease or rheumatism.
