Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of swollen/sore throat is most likely due to upper respiratory tract infection caused by viral infection.Symptoms caused by a viral infection generally clears up on its own within 5-7 days with no complications.

Following is recommended for you:

  • For symptomatic relief,take tab.NyQuil.It contains acetaminophen,dextromethorphan,doxylamine and pseudoephedrine that will provide you great relief from these symptoms.It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription.
  • Keep a humidifier running in your room.
  • Gargling with lukewarm saline water is one of the best remedies.

All this will help you greatly to subside the symptoms.

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments & doctor visit is less likely required.

I can understand that you are gagging.So please take tab meclizine hydrochloride(brand name: Dramamine).This will help you greatly in stopping the gagging or nausea (if any).

It is available at your pharmacy as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.

Also follow the above described measures.

Please do not worry. This will subside in couple of days.
