Hello Arlini, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Introduce me Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Previously your complaint was still not specific enough to enforce a disease diagnosis. Based on the complaints you feel, such as pain in the throat, dryness, phlegm and burning when swallowing, there are several possible diseases that may occur to you, including:
Tonsillitis pharyngitis Tonsillopharyngitis Laryngitis Some of these diseases have similar clinical signs or complaints. It's just the difference that is from a physical examination conducted by a doctor. The causes can also vary. The most common causes of this disease are viruses and bacteria.
For handling, depending on the cause itself. If it is caused by a virus, the complaint will get better by itself, it only needs to be handled complaints such as fever, cough, swallowing pain. This treatment can be done independently at home. But if the disease is caused by bacteria, treatment with antibiotics is needed. Giving antibiotics should not be used carelessly, because it can cause immunity to certain antibiotics if used freely without instructions from the doctor.
If complaints still arise and continue for more than one week or get worse, it is advisable to do a doctor's examination.
Right now what you can do is:
adequate rest avoid consumption of cold / ice drinks avoid greasy and spicy foods drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration eat nutritious food consult a doctor if complaints do not improve or even get worse. So the answers that I have provided may help
Thank you :)
