Sore Throat, Chills, Headache, Bitter Tongue?
Hello, it’s been 2 days my throat hurts, my tongue also feels bitter, my fever goes up and down, and my head feels very dizzy … Can I know if I have strep throat or other symptoms? Thank you …
Good evening, thanks for the question
Complaints of sore throat that are suspected of a condition of pharyngitis or inflammation of the throat can be caused by infection
viruses, bacteria, allergies, or trauma, and can also be caused by consuming oily, sweet or hard-textured foods that cause inflammation in the pharyngeal mucosa. Symptoms of sore throat caused by the condition of pharyngitis can be accompanied by symptoms of fever, nasal runny nose, cough, or headache.
This condition can actually be overcome without medication because it can heal spontaneously with a good immune system. Some efforts that can be done to help speed healing in pharyngitis include:
1. Get enough rest
2. Drink warm water
3. Gargle with warm water or antiseptic mouthwash to maintain oral hygiene
4. Maintain endurance by consuming nutritious food, fruit, or vitamin C supplements
5. Don't smoke
6. Choose soft-textured food and easy to swallow
That's all, hope you can help.
