We understand the inconvenience of your complaint
Sore throat accompanied by difficulty swallowing is often caused by infection. Some diseases that cause symptoms of sore throat accompanied by difficulty swallowing and disorders of the vocal cords, including:
Sore throat (pharyngitis / inflammation of the pharynx)
Strep throat (inflammation of the throat wall due to streptococcal bacteria)
Laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx)
Epiglotitis (inflammation of the epiglottis)
Tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils due to infection)
Some types of diseases above are included in the group of upper respiratory infections (ARI). The disease is often caused by a viral or germ infection that is brought into the environment.
However, other conditions such as allergies and throat irritation due to foreign objects entering through the throat can also cause similar complaints.
Consuming drinks mixed with aromatherapy, can not directly cause these symptoms. Usually consuming foods or drinks that contain certain substances tend to cause symptoms in the digestive tract such as abdominal pain, stomach sensations, nausea, vomiting to diarrhea. If you do not complain about these symptoms, then most likely the complaint that you experience is not caused by the drink.
You don't need to worry, we suspect your condition is caused by a bacterial / viral infection from the environment. ARI that attacks the upper respiratory tract can often heal by itself as the body's immune system increases. However, some conditions such as high fever, accompanied by pain when swallowing until it is difficult to enter food or drink requires further treatment. Some cases of inflammation in the throat require antibiotic therapy if it is suspected to be caused by germs / bacteria. Although many cases are also caused by ordinary viral infections and do not require antibiotics.
Therefore, to find out your type of disease with certainty, we recommend that you do the examination to the nearest doctor or ENT specialist to get further evaluation. The doctor will examine your throat, and provide the best medical judgment that suits your condition.
To help relieve the complaints you feel, take a break at home, multiply the consumption of water, eat healthy and nutritious foods in order to increase your body's immunity. If necessary, consume pain relievers such as paracetamol to reduce the pain complaints you feel. Avoid exposure to pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, oily foods that can irritate your throat.
