I have a sore throat, I have difficulty swallowing and I already take antibiotics. What should I do?

1 Answer:

Hello Maisya, Thank you for the question.


A sore throat is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, swallowing pain, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, heartburn or chest pain that feels burning . Sore throat can be caused by:

sore throat
tonsillitis
inflammation of the esophagus / esophagus (esophagitis) due to stomach acid disease


To determine the right treatment, it is necessary to ascertain first the cause because not all symptoms of sore throat will be treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics are drugs that are used to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics are a class of hard drugs that should not be used carelessly without doctor's advice. Most sore throats can improve on their own without special treatment. You can do the handling independently by:

get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day
multiply water consumption
multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
if you feel pain when swallowing, please choose softer foods to make it easier to swallow
Avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution
avoid smoking
gargle with warm salt water or consume lemon water and honey to help soothe a sore throat

If this symptom does not improve for more than 2 weeks or if it is accompanied by a high fever (38 C or more) for 3 days or more or difficulty swallowing food and drinks, please consult your nearest doctor immediately so that the doctor can carry out further tests before giving further handling. However, if there are symptoms of shortness / difficulty breathing, please immediately visit the nearest emergency room so that you can immediately be given the right treatment.


I hope this helps.
