Dear customer,

Since when is this happening? Do you have difficulty in swallowing, voice change, or fever, or runny nose, or sneezing, or body aches? Have you had similar symptoms in the past?

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

You are likely suffering from sore throat which may cause all these symptoms. In most cases this is due to a viral infection. Please rest your voice. Drink adequate fluids to prevent dehydration and also to keep your throat moist. Also warm liquids such as warm water with honey can soothe a sore throat. A saltwater gargle with warm salt water will relieve the symptoms of sore throat. You may humidify the air or sit several minutes in a steamy bathroom and this may help since this will prevent irritation of sore throat caused by dry air. You may take tylenol which contains aceminophen, or ibuprofen (found in MOTRIN or advil) for the throat pain and headache, and also to lower the body temperature if fever is present. You can also use lozenges which can soothe a sore throat. Keeping your home free from irritants such as cigarette smoke that can irritate the throat is recommended.

You must however see your doctor and have investigations done to know whether antibiotics are required if you have any of the following symptoms:
A sore throat that is very severe or that is lasting longer than a week
Not able to swallow
Trouble in breathing
Trouble in opening your mouth
Joint pain
Pain in the ears
Rash
Fever over 101 F (38.3 C)
Blood in saliva or phlegm
A swelling in your neck
Hoarseness in voice that lasts more than two weeks

If your doctor confirms that this may be due to bacterial infection after investigations then you may need to take an antibiotic.

Take care.
