Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Swallowing pain can be caused by the following conditions:
Sore throat (pharyngitis): can be accompanied by coughs and colds if it is caused by an upper respiratory tract infection Inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis) A build-up of pus in the tonsils (peritonsil abscess): is a complication of tonsillitis inflammation of the valve that separates the throat and esophagus (epiglottitis) Reflux stomach acid (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which is stomach acid that rises back into the esophagus Foreign bodies in the esophagus To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will perform a mouth and throat examination and if necessary, additional investigations such as tonsil culture and blood tests will be carried out, or refer you to an ENT specialist for further tracking. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Here are things you can do to reduce symptoms and prevent worsening:
Adequate rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day and reduce strenuous physical activity. Eat nutritious foods, multiply fruits and vegetables to help increase endurance Drink lots of water, about 2 liters per day Maintain oral health by brushing your teeth after eating and before bed Avoid consuming foods that are spicy, oily, too hot / cold, and high in MSG. Drinking warm ginger and honey can help relieve sore throat. You can take over-the-counter drugs such as paracetamol to relieve your pain. This is my explanation. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
