If your tonsils are swollen from bacterial infection.....?

Your doctor gives ou a Z-Pack and a steriod shot to take swelling down. Does smoking cigarettes affect the recovery? I am not sure abut all these drugs and i wonder. Thanks.


Good point. I need to quit anyways. Just curious. Thanks for the honest opinion got me thinking now!

    Let's take it from the beginning.

    The tonsils have role in immunity, it keeps bacteria from advancing in your body. If your tonsils are irritated now, why give them more work to do by smoking cigarettes that contain tar and all kind of nasty stuff?

    --just my opinion.

    No problem ^_^

    Take care of yourself !
