Hello Giri ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Strep throat usually occurs for a period of less than two weeks, caused by a viral infection, and can also be caused by bacteria or due to air pollution and cigarettes that cause irritation in the throat. Normally strep throat can improve in 5 to 10 days even without treatment. Some of the symptoms that occur in people who experience strep throat are:
- Pain in the throat when swallowing
- It's uncomfortable when speaking
- The existence of a cough and dry taste in the throat
The FG Troches drug that you take is an antibiotic drug, the use of which must be in accordance with the doctor's recommendations, the content of this drug is fradiomycin adn gramicidin, which can kill bacteria that cause inflammation of the mouth and throat, not all inflammation needs antibiotics, because the most common cause of strep throat is a virus. . For adults the dose of this drug is 1-2 lozenges every 4-5 times a day and must be consumed.
Some things you can do at home to relieve strep throat is to drink plenty of water, a mixture of lemon tea and honey can also help your throat feel comfortable, drinking warm water can also help relieve sore throat, eat soft foods and avoid foods that are soft greasy, stop smoking so that healing of inflammation can be faster, minimize the use of the vocal cords so that the vocal cords can rest and the healing process can be faster, take vitamins that can increase body immunity and get enough rest, diligently wash your hands with soap and running water to avoid spreading viruses and bacteria.
If there are symptoms of fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, a persistent cough and does not improve with treatment, accompanied by shortness of breath immediately consult a doctor. Try to stay away from crowds in advance to minimize exposure to the virus.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
