Hi everyone, I didn't know where to ask this question so I picked up "respiratory forum". I am wondering if tonsillitis is contagious, no one yet succeeded to explain it to me. After googling for so many sites these guys (http://feelgoodtime.net/is-tonsillitis-contagious/) did manage to simplefy it but I need more referrence. Please help!

  • It can be contagious depending on the cause of it. Tonsillitis simply means inflammation of the tonsils and can be caused by several things. You can read more from Mayo Clinic which is very authoritative and reliable here:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/tonsillitis/DS00273Here is another article from WebMD which is also very reliable:http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/tc/tonsillitis-topic-overview
