Is it tonsillitis?
The tonsils sit just behind the back teeth and if they are infected you will typically get a sore throat, fever, headache, and often, bad breath. The vast majority of sore throats are not tonsillitis, and are mostly viral (and therefore not helped by antibiotics).
Hearing Loss in the Elderly
Age related hearing loss is common, affecting at least one in three older adults. It can be isolating and embarrassing for some, and unfortunately, it tends to get worse with time. Step one, is to discuss the problem with your doctor to see what can be easily fixed.
