Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Inflammation in the throat area can be caused by several possibilities, which often include:
Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharyngeal wall, the most common cause is a viral infection, complaints: sore throat, not too high fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose)
Tonsillitis (inflammation of the palatine tonsils, complaints: fever, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, and commonly occurs in conjunction with pharyngitis)
Laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx and vocal mucosa, the most common cause is excessive use of voice [vocal abuse] in the short term / upper respiratory tract infection by viruses / reflux of gastric acid into the larynx and pharynx, complaints: hoarseness, fever, coughing, nose runny, painful swallowing, mucus that runs behind the throat, tightness)
Common cold (also called a cold, which is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, complaints: fever, sneezing, nasal congestion, body aches, headaches)
Eating watermelon after taking anti-inflammatory medication is not a necessity. There is no adverse effect on the effectiveness of the drug if you do not eat watermelon after taking anti-inflammatory medication.
We recommend that you consult with your doctor or ENT specialist to conduct the necessary evaluation and treatment. Your doctor will check the state of your throat using a direct laryngoscope or if indicated, with fiber optic laryngoscopy. As another suggestion at home, you can take the following steps:
Avoid substances that can irritate the throat, for example: cigarettes, spicy food, drinking ice
Reduce talk for 2-3 days
Eat a balanced nutritious diet, including vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Wash hands with soap and running water before eating and drinking
