In connection with your question, if you have a cough complaint and have done a doctor's examination and the doctor provides treatment with cefixime, but your throat complaints are increasingly disturbing, then this condition is likely an acute phase of the disease from coughing or inflammation of the throat. So that in the initial phase of this pain or cough, complaints of throat itching and pain can occur anywhere, because the treatment you get does not necessarily cure you, but requires a process of recovery and treatment in a few after treatment.
Apart from the conditions of the initial phase of the sick process, several things can also increase these complaints, such as you still consume spicy foods, fried foods, greasy foods, instant foods, instant drinks or you sleep late at night or you are still experiencing physical fatigue; all of this will affect the recovery phase and aggravate the initial complaints that you experience.
Therefore, evaluate all the risks that might aggravate your complaint, and if on day 3 after taking medication your complaint is still disturbing, then you should consult a doctor who treats you to evaluate treatment or evaluate the possibility of other diseases that accompany your coughing complaints such as typhus, dengue or indigestion.
