Take Anti-inflammatory Medication Together With Antibiotics To Treat Sore Throat?
want to ask whether cortidex is a medicine for strep throat ?, if you take it with cefadroxil
Thank you for the question.
Sore throat (pharyngitis) can occur due to various causes, ranging from dry throat, allergies, irritation, excessive vocal cord stretching, viral or bacterial infections, gastric acid reflux, drug side effects, cancer, immune disorders, and many other medical conditions. Clinically, these various conditions may have similar symptoms, namely in the form of itching, pain, phlegm, and other discomfort that appears around the throat. But actually, different causes, so different steps can be taken to overcome them.
Cortidex contains the active composition of dexamethasone, which is an anti-inflammatory drug. This drug may be given to people with pharyngitis associated with immune disorders or allergies. Meanwhile, cefadroxyl is an antibiotic class of drugs, which is only appropriate for use in cases of pharyngitis that appear associated with bacterial infections. So, not all cases of pharyngitis are properly treated with the consumption of both types of this drug. Therefore, considering that neither of these drugs is included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, we recommend that you do not take it carelessly.
First check yourself to the doctor or ENT doctor to be given the best treatment. In addition, so that the symptoms of pharyngitis subside, you can multiply drinking warm water first, limit excessive screaming, use masks, eat more diligently with fruits rich in vitamin C, don't eat spicy and oily foods, don't smoke, and get plenty of rest.
Hope this helps ...
