1 Answer:

Hello Nathanael ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Discomfort in the throat like a lump can be felt by anyone. The most common cause is a virus, but can also be caused by several conditions such as:
- Sore throat
- Tonsillitis or inflammation of the tonsils
- Tumor
- Abscess in the throat
Complaints of lumps in the throat are also often accompanied by a burning sensation in the throat and tonsils that are red and also swollen, bacteria and allergies can also cause a lump in the throat.
In some circumstances, antibiotics can help to treat strep throat, but if it is caused by bacteria or strep throat that has passed the complaints of 4 days and there are yellowish green phlegm. The use of antibiotics also cannot be arbitrary, considering that drug resistance can occur if the dosage and method of use is wrong, if there is drug resistance, then the drug cannot work optimally to overcome the cause of the perceived complaint. Amoxicillin antibiotic itself works to overcome the bacteria that grows in the organs of the lungs, throat, urinary tract, skin and ears and nose. The dose given also varies depending on the type and severity of infection, generally the dose of amoxicillin in adults is 250-500mg 3 times a day or 500-875mg 2 times a day.
To relieve a lump in the throat, some things you can do at home are to drink warm water as often as possible, get enough rest, avoid triggers such as foods containing excess oil such as fried foods and spicy foods, avoid cigarettes and multiply nutritious foods. If your complaint does not improve even though you have adopted a healthy lifestyle, and accompanied by complaints of fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, shortness of breath immediately to the doctor.
But in situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so as not to be exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throats that get worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by more fever from 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
