Overcoming Phlegm And Sore Throat?
Good evening doctor .. r nI want to ask, a month ago I had a cold and cough due to fatigue. After 2 weeks I recovered. But I don’t know why my throat hurts every time I wake up and I always have phlegm. To make a cough that must remove phlegm. Every day it continues. And now I have another cough and cold. What should I do??
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Phlegm and sore throat can arise due to various possibilities, including:
Laryngitis or inflammation of the vocal cords
Pharyngitis or sore throat
Viral infection of the respiratory tract
Lack of fluids or dehydration
Irritation due to pollution, dust and cigarette smoke
Our advice, because you have been experiencing this condition for a long time, you should check with an ENT doctor for further treatment. You will be checked in advance for your medical history by asking for risk factors for the above conditions, doing a physical examination, generally by using the back of your mouth, and possibly supporting if needed such as blood tests to find out the possibility of infection. The treatment you will receive will depend on the results of this examination, but it is usually in the form of drugs that suppress the immune system to reduce symptoms.
Meanwhile, avoid stress, limit activity, drink lots of warm water, can be mixed with lemon and honey, get enough rest, try consuming spicy foods to help reduce phlegm if you don't have a history of stomach disease, increase vegetables and fruit, and avoid pollution. , dust and cigarette smoke. So, hopefully it answers your question.
