When Can I Continue Smoke After a Tonsil Infection?

0 votes
I am currently taking antibiotics because I had one of my tonsils infected and had pus too. The infection is gone now after 5 days of iv antibiotics. I am also taking isoprinosine to regain my immunity. My question is that if I am going to smoke now (my tonsils are ok for about 5 days) is the infection going to come back (I also have to mention that I have never had any problem with my tonsils) ? If I am taking isoprinosine for about one week (3 tablets a day) and I am going to continue taking it for a few months,will it help my low immunity ? Thank you !

Firstly, take only Isoprinosine AS ADVISED by the doctor. Comply with the regimen given and do not attempt to extend the duration of the treatment and the dosage. Isoprinosine has anti-viral properties. Over-using it will make you immune to the drug. It will break its purpose of making you immune to virus. If it can't work to protect or boost your immune system, then you will have to take a drug that is more potent than Isoprinosine.

Secondly, although your throat appears and feels okay after 5 days of treatment or even when the infection is already treated, smoking can cause further irritation of the throat. Smoking damages the linings of the throat, thus, making you a candidate (again) for throat infection.

I hope I was able to enlighten you.

Thank you very much for your answer! I am sorry because I didn't mention the period of time correctly,I meant to say that i have been on treatment with antibiotics for 10 days (5 with iv antibiotics which helped me heal from the first 3 doses) and 5 with antibiotics as tablets. How long do I have to wait until I can smoke? I forgot to mention that I am currently not drinking and I am not eating things that can irritate my throat. Thank you !
As a health advocate, I wouldn't encourage you to continue smoking. As I have said, smoking can irritate the linings of your throat. This will make you more susceptible to throat infections.
