It needs to be clarified, what examinations has your mother undergone with an ENT specialist?
Discomfort, namely pain and lump, in the throat can occur due to problems in the respiratory tract, digestive tract, to psychosomatic. If this condition is prolonged (more than 2 weeks) with a very disturbing intensity, then not only interviews and physical examinations, several other diagnostic procedures, such as x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on can also be needed to determine the right diagnosis. Has your mother ever had the above examinations?
Some of the following conditions may cause pain and lumps in the throat as your mother experienced:
Excessive use of the vocal cords (for example, from screaming too much) Tonsilopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils) GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Gastric ulcers (ulcers in the stomach wall) Bronchitis (inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs) Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma, eg due to infection or aspiration) Tuberculosis (lung spots) Allergies (eg to cold, food, or certain drugs) Malignancies in the oral cavity or throat (eg nasopharyngeal carcinoma) Psychosomatic disorders Side effects of drugs (eg antihypertensive drugs) ), etc. Yellowish or reddish saliva (due to containing blood) that your mother experienced may occur due to one of the above causes, or also due to problems with dental and oral health (eg fungal infections, thrush, tartar, or cavities) .
If your mother has not undergone the follow-up examination as mentioned above, it is better for you to re-examine your mother to another ENT specialist to seek a second opinion. In this way, you can identify the originator of your mother's complaints so far, along with what kind of treatment is appropriate to overcome them. However, if there are still no significant abnormalities, then you and your mother need not worry.
In the meantime, your mother can live with the following tips:
Never shout too much Drink warm water and consume foods rich in vitamin C Reduce spicy, oily food Stay away from cigarettes, smoke, pollutants, and other allergens Keep your teeth and mouth clean by regularly brushing your teeth and gargling with antiseptic mouthwash Eat regularly , little by little but often. Do not lie down immediately after eating. Maintain ideal body weight, avoid obesity. If sore throat is very bothersome, your mother can take paracetamol first.
