Thank you.

This is tonsillitis or pharyngitis, which we all experience once or twice in a year.

Doctor: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Most common reason for this is a viral illness which is usually self limiting and settles down on its own in few days.

There are certain measures which will be helpful for you.

Plenty of hot liquids.

Honey water (anti-inflammatory)

Motrin or Aleve (will relieve pain and swelling in throat)

Good hydration.

All will help.

The only reason to see a doctor is, if you develop any of the following;

High grade fever

Inability to eat/drink orally

Otherwise it will and should settle down soon.

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.
