A paratonsillar abscess (paratonsillitis, phlegmonous tonsillitis) can occur as a result of the spread of infection from inflamed tonsils to other tissues in the head and neck. While in some sources this condition is indicated as another type of tonsillitis, it can probably be more accurately described as a complication of untreated tonsillitis. Paratonsillar abscess occurs more often in adolescents and adults than in children. Also buy augmentin online at link below.
