Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Sore throat can be caused by a number of factors.
Often it is viral infection.
There can be headache with it.
But there can be an infection with bacteria too.
As the pain is much, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
A throat swab can be taken to test for bacteria.
In bacterial infection antibiotic would be necessary.
You can now take tylenol or Motrin for pain.
Warm salt water gargling will also help.
You can do warm salt water gargling.
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt needs to be dissolved in an 8-ounce of warm water.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
