Causes And Ways To Deal With Sore Throat Accompanied By Thick Green Phlegm?
I asked, I have been in a week like this, when before sleeping and waking up, my throat was sore and dry but not thirsty, then after a few minutes or hours of getting out of bed I like thick green phlegm coming out both from the mouth and from the nose. In the afternoon, evening, and night the phlegm does not come out, only time after getting out of bed doc. Start this situation when I’m fasting and exercise is pretty heavy. So how, ask for an explanation. Thank you in advance.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Symptoms of pain in the throat can be caused by several possibilities, including:
the air is too dry
allergies (such as allergies to dust mites, animal dandruff, mold spores, or flower pollen)
irritation (for example due to cigarette smoke, excessive air pollution, certain chemicals)
infection (viral, bacterial, or fungal infections in the throat or tonsils)
GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease (also known as acid reflux disease)
tumor / cancer
If it is already a week the condition does not improve itself, you should do an examination with the ENT doctor so that you can do further evaluation of your disease. Your doctor can look inside your throat to evaluate whether there are certain abnormalities in your throat.
Some things you can do right now:
try to clean your bedroom from dust, keep things that can store dust from your bed, clean the bed with a vacuum to be free from dust and mites
Avoid smoking and use a mask if the air around you contains a lot of pollution
use an air humidifier or humidifier in your room
drink more fluids (at least 2-3 liters a day)
consuming honey or gargling with salt water can help relieve pain in the throat
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
