Customer Question

Hi,
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: ive had a sore throat for about 2 weeks now and over the last few days I’ve also developed a pain in the top of my back near my right shoulder blade.

It sounds like a muscle, joint or nerve pain and I would suggest applying capsaicin cream over it, massage the area with warm olive oil and apply warm compresses, continue taking paracetamol. You can take nystatin oral drops and salt water mouth rinses for oral ulcers.
