Hi Ibnu, thank you for your question
Almost everyone has experienced sore throat, including children, adults, and the elderly. The most common cause is a bacterial or viral infection in the upper respiratory tract. Most sore throats don't require medical attention and will go away in a few days to a week. To relieve pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medications, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, as well as gargling with saline or over-the-counter antiseptic solutions.
However, if the sore throat does not go away in one week, it would be best to have it checked by a doctor. This condition can indicate:
peritonsillary abscess - a buildup of pus in a pocket located around the tonsils (tonsils) chronic tonsillitis acute exacerbation - characterized by the presence of white spots (detritus) on the tonsils, accompanied by crypto-infection mononucleosis - due to Epstein Barr virus infection characterized by swollen lymph nodes and fever epiglottitis - inflammation of the epiglottis You should see a doctor directly. After conducting an examination and determining the underlying cause, the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment. For example, giving antibiotics for bacterial infections, while viral infections with symptomatic treatment to treat the symptoms that arise. Not all sore throats require surgery. Of course, the doctor will make the best decision according to the conditions that underlie your complaint.
