Thank you for the question.
Pain in the throat, feels lumpy, achy, and phlegm, which appears mainly when swallowing food is most often caused by strep throat, or in the medical realm is called pharyngitis. Pharyngitis itself can be many possible triggers, for example:
Irritation due to consumption of certain types of food or drinks, including oily foods such as french fries
Excessive stretch of the vocal cords, including when you talk, shout, or cough too loudly --- this condition can also cause you to bleed together with phlegm
Gastric acid backflow into the throat, can be experienced by people with GERD or LPR
Allergies, for example due to cold, certain foods or drugs, dust mites
Infections, such as those caused by viruses or bacteria
The habit of smoking, or inhaling other chemical fumes
Others, such as the influence of drugs, disorders of immunity, malignancies around the throat, malnutrition, and so on
These conditions, if it has been repeated very often, and cause complaints that are very disturbing, you should not leave it alone. Check with your doctor or ENT doctor so that you can evaluate the cause of your complaint, and also the treatment that needs to be done to overcome it. In most cases, pharyngitis is sufficient to be treated with medication. But in some rare cases, where pharyngitis spreads from or to the tonsils to cause severe inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillopharyngitis), surgery can also be done.
In the meantime, what should be done:
Rest 6-8 hours a day
Drink warm water, at least 10 glasses per day
Don't drink and eat anything that is cold, deprived, oily, spicy, and contains excessive artificial sweeteners
Be more diligent in eating fruits rich in vitamin C, for example guava, orange, berries
Not too much to say, let alone shouting too much
Do not smoke, stay away from smoke, pollution and other airway irritants
Brush your teeth diligently, proceed with gargling using salt solution
Use a mask
Don't eat and drink with other people to prevent transmission
Maintain endurance with diligent exercise and live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
