Hi, sure thanks
what antibiotic did you take?
ok that is the standard treatment for this
you may have caused some mucosal injury while sneezing so heavily
but dont worry it is nothing so serious
during infections, severe cough or sneezing can cause tears in the pharynx, sometimes even bleeding
but it is not so serious
it would not have hurt you so much
what is more likely is that the infection has persisted
sometimes the bacteria can be resistant and not be controlled by an antibiotic
you need to see your doctor again for this
discuss about whether your infection has persisted
your doctor may prescribe another antibiotic, or if infection is not so severe
simply advise some symptomatic treatment
for now take tylenol to control the pain
also do steam inhalation - this can be very soothing for throat pain
also do warm saline gurgle with lukewarm water in which a pinch of salt has been added to a glass of water
this will give relief for now
but do see your doctor at the earliest
ok thank you
and dont worry it is not a serious thing
