Consumption Of Mangoes When Sore Throat?
Greetings, I am deresaty, I am 34 years old, currently I am suffering from strep throat and are undergoing treatment, the doctor I have met informs me not to consume oily and spicy foods and hard textures, but does not inform not to consume certain fruits. mango coincidence in my home page is currently a lot of fruit, so I was tempted to eat or just taste, whether the mango can worsen my sore throat? I browse about it but the results are confusing, I’m sure if asking the experts would be better , thank you
Good evening Deresaty, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Strep throat, or also called pharyngitis, is a condition when the throat is inflamed, which can be caused by viruses or bacteria. This disease is often found and easily transmitted to others. Factors that increase a person's risk for developing this disease are:
Having a low immune system Poorly maintaining bodily hygiene by routinely washing hands Poorly maintaining food hygiene Frequently interacting with people who have similar complaints Often exposed to cigarette smoke Suffering from allergies
The advice of your doctor to avoid spicy, oily and hard foods is because this can make the throat feel more dry, sore and itchy. But this taboo itself is not absolute taboo, only if you consume it will make you even more uncomfortable. Absolute food abstinence for strep throat itself does not exist, mostly just abstinence to support healing and comfort as stated by your doctor.
So that even for consumption of mangoes there is no absolute taboo. It's just that if the mango is too sweet, your throat might feel itchy. And if it tastes sour, and you happen to have stomach acid, this can increase your stomach acid which, if stomach acid rises to the throat, can worsen inflammation. But in essence, there is no absolute abstinence, there are people who might be in trouble when consuming mangoes, and some are not. If you really want to take it, you can try it a little, and if there are no problems, you can continue. So, hopefully answering your question.
