Pain When Swallowing Food And Red Colored Tonsils?
Good morning, Doctor. I want to ask. R n r nWhen I wake up in the morning, I find it difficult to swallow. I have drunk enough mineral water but the pain has not gone away. When I looked in the mirror, it turned out that my left tonsil was red but the redness was different. The redness was like a wound. It didn’t hurt, but I had difficulty swallowing. Apart from taking medication, what other solutions also exist,? R n r nThank you in advance. Good morning.
