Provision Of Anti-inflammatory Drugs For Strep Throat?
Good morning doc For throat inflammation More effectively given prednisone / dexa Thank you
Hello Shiwak, Thank you for the question.
Sore throat is the main symptom of strep throat. These symptoms can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, headaches, joint and muscle aches, and decreased appetite. Strep throat can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection, irritation or allergies, and stomach acid disease. Prednisone and dexamethsaon are drugs in the corticosteroid group, which function to overcome inflammation in the body. This medicine can also be used to treat allergic reactions. Neither prednisone nor dexamethasone are superior or more effective in dealing with inflammation. Both of these drugs are classified as hard drugs that you should not use without doctor's advice. Not all strep throat will be treated with these drugs. Therefore, if you experience a sore throat that does not improve, it is recommended that you see a doctor for further examination so that you receive the appropriate treatment.
It is also recommended that you do the following suggestions:
avoid consuming spicy foods, oily foods, and sweet foods or drinks
increase consumption of nutritious foods
multiply water consumption
get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day
gargle with warm salt water to help soothe a sore throat
Avoid exposure to dust and air pollution
Hopefully this information helps you.
