Purulent pharyngitis is an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the pharynx and tonsils, often of a viral or bacterial nature. The treatment of pharyngitis in the initial stages guarantees the complete disappearance of the problem, but with an advanced condition the disease can become chronic and provoke the development of problems with other organs.
The reason for the development of the disease
The natural process for humans is nasal breathing. The nasal passages are designed so that inhaled air enters with a slight delay. During these pauses, it warms up, is filtered, and in this form is supplied to the body. When the nose is blocked and breathing occurs through the mouth, the risk of pharyngitis increases — air does not pass through “filters” and enters through the mouth with bacteria, viruses, dust, etc. An unnatural process causes the throat to dry out, it becomes a favorable environment for the development of pathogenic flora .
Other causes include:
• Vitamin deficiency and malnutrition;
• Bad habits;
• Chemical fumes;
• Ingestion of allergens.
Often pharyngitis is facilitated by past diseases, for example, diabetes mellitus, dental caries, cardiac, renal failure, sinusitis, sinusitis and others.
Acute pharyngitis is usually catarrhal, i.e. superficial. Purulent forms are less common.
Types of chronic pharyngitis:
• Catarrhal, accompanied by prolonged superficial inflammation and impaired blood circulation, which leads to venous congestion and constant swelling of the tissues;
• Hypertrophic, in which there is a thickening of all layers of the pharyngeal wall, as well as hypertrophy of lymphoid follicles;
• Atrophic with a decrease in the number of mucous glands, thinning, dryness and increased trauma to the walls of the pharynx.
The methods for treating pharyngitis depend on its form: if antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed in the acute process, then in chronic therapy local therapy and physiotherapeutic methods aimed at the regeneration of normal pharyngeal tissues are of greater importance.
