It has been 2 days since my throat feels sore, it is difficult to swallow accompanied by a headache next to it as well as pain in the ears and teeth. If I take a headache to relieve migraines, is it okay?

1 Answer:

Hello May, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Pain in the throat accompanied by difficulty swallowing, headaches, pain in the ears and teeth can be caused by several possibilities, including:

inflammation of the tonsils / tonsils (tonsillitis) or inflammation of the throat (pharyngitis)

peritonsillar abscess (the appearance of pus-filled pockets around the tonsils)
parapharyngeal abscess or retrofarynx (the appearance of a pus-filled pocket around the throat)
diphtheria infection

You may take headache medicine to relieve migraines to reduce headaches, ear and tooth pain, or to reduce fever if you have a fever. However, if the symptoms you have do not improve in 3-5 days, get worse, you experience shortness of breath or cannot swallow at all, you should immediately go to the doctor for further evaluation and treatment. The doctor will see directly the condition of your throat or perform additional examinations (eg throat swab or blood test). If a bacterial infection in your throat is suspected, your doctor can prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection. If there is an abscess (around the tonsils or pharynx), chances are you will be referred to an ENT doctor for further evaluation and management.

Some other things you can do at this point:

drink more (at least 2-3 liters a day, or more if you have a fever)
get plenty of sleep and rest
consumption of well-nourished foods, especially those containing lots of vitamins such as fruits and vegetables
if you have difficulty swallowing, you can eat soft foods first


So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
