Why Does My Back Head Hurt When I Cough?
Why does my back head hurt when I cough? And swallowing hurts. What is the solution?
Hello Eva Veronika,
Swallowing pain or odinophagia can be caused by the following conditions:
Fungal infections or oral candidiasis
Ulcers or sores in the back of the mouth / larynx
Swallowing pain is very often caused due to inflammation in the back of the mouth. The cause of swallowing pain can be determined based on physical examination or investigations such as endoscopy. In pharyngitis and tonsillitis therapy is usually given based on symptoms. Antibiotics can be given under conditions that are suspected of being caused by a bacterial infection. Antifungal drugs are given in cases of oral candidiasis.
In certain conditions odinophagia can disappear by itself by eating foods with balanced nutrition, reducing foods that are too hot / sour / spicy, drinking enough water, avoid smoking, and adequate rest. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
