Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Most likely viral infection.

However, if this is going on for more than a week, this can be a bacterial infection as well.

In that case, antibiotics like amoxicillin can be prescribed by a local physician.

Any recent unprotected oralsex?

Had this burning feeling in the throat after 2 days in Bangkok, felt like the polution in the air was causing it. Yes, had oral sex with wife few days back, no strangers, after swimming in public hotel swimming pool if this helps.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can get antibiotics here easy over the counter, please recommend a few names, dosage and how many days
Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Ok --probably viral infection which can be controlled with ibuprofen.

If no improvement in a week, then you can start antibiotic course --correct dose will be amoxicillin 1 gram twice daily for 7 days after clinical evaluation.

Best wishes

What Customers are Saying:

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

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

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!!
