Local Swelling In The Throat Is Long?
3 days ago I had a fever and had a cold too. And my throat was slimy and when I examined my throat like something was growing but not round. Instead of a length of about 2-3 cm, was that normal?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The appearance of the throat wall is like a rough surface or in the form of an irregular lump accompanied by local swelling called a cobblestone throat. This cobblestone image is most often caused by pharyngitis or inflammation of the throat which causes the throat to feel painful, itchy, and difficult to swallow, accompanied by other common symptoms such as fever, weakness, cough, or runny nose.
When the body fights infection, local lymph node tissue will react so that the pharyngeal mucosal surface appears reddish and swollen. Pharyngitis can also be chronic so that the cobblestone appearance can also last for a long period of time. Chronic conditions are generally not caused by infection but by external factors such as gastric acid reflux or allergic rhinitis.
If the pharyngitis has recovered, the surface of the throat wall will return to normal. To reduce complaints, you can do the following:
1. Gargle with salt water
2. Using a humidifier
3. Consuming honey
4. Consuming anti-inflammatory
That's all, hope you can help.
