Tongue Sore, Itchy Throat And Drinking Water Tastes Bland?
I want to ask. Initially I experienced a cough that was not restrained because of itching in my throat. At the moment the itching has decreased but my tongue feels sore on the edge of the tongue and the tongue is also white. When I saw in my mouth I found the base of my throat red. R nIt looks like it spread to my 4-year-old child. Currently, he has an itch on the throat, the tongue is white and there are white spots on the edge of the tongue, it hurts when eating.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A cough accompanied by a throat that feels itchy and reddish can occur due to inflammation of the throat, for example due to allergies, irritation, or also infection. This inflammation often occurs not limited to the throat, but can also spread to other areas around it, including the tongue and oral cavity. This condition can affect anyone, children are no exception. If it is true that your condition is contagious to your child, then most likely the cause is an infection, it could be due to a virus or bacteria. In addition to coughing, discomfort in the throat and tongue, this infection often also triggers fever, decreased appetite, muscle and joint pain, and various other complaints.
For exactly how long have you and your child experienced this complaint? Has it been more than 3 days? How is your child's appetite?
If your complaint has occurred for 3 days or more, we recommend that you don't let it drag on. Check with yourself and your child directly to the doctor so that the best treatment is given. Often, conditions like the one you both experience are harmless and can improve within a few days through the administration of several types of drugs, including anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics (if bacterial infection is suspected), and so on. However, if it is felt that a more serious condition occurs, the doctor may also lead to further tests, for example blood tests, swabs of oral and / or throat tissues, and so on.
Here are some suggestions from us for both of you:
Drink more Consume first food that is easily digested, for example porridge, broth foods, reduce the habit of consuming oily, spicy, berasas (such as crackers) multiply fruit asupa which is rich in vitamin C Don't make it a habit to drink ice or other cold foods excessively too much activity, especially in polluted environments Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke Don't scream too much More diligently brush your teeth, continue to rinse using salt solution Use a humidifier water when the environmental air is dry Hopefully it helps ..
