Tonsillitis - Causes

Tonsillitis can be caused by a virus, such as the common cold, or by a bacterial infection, such as strep throat. Viruses are the most common cause of tonsillitis. Children come in close contact with others at school and play, exposing them to a variety of viruses and bacteria. This makes them particularly vulnerable to germs that cause tonsillitis.
