Having throat pain through infection and fever. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
Good evening. Thank you
My query is regarding my wife's throat pain which seems to have originated from an infection
actually 3/4 days ago she felt some itching and she kind of tried to touch the area (inside mouth/throat) with fingers
then in the afternoon, the same day, she got pain in the throat and high fever
I am sorry for that
She might be suffering from pharyngitis
Did you use any medications?
she initially took only Combiflam but that relieved the pain for few hrs & the fever used to come back again
so she took an antibiotic also - Erythro-500
so far, she has taken 4 Erythro-500 & 6 combiflams
now since day before yesterday night, fever is gone
& the throat pain has also reduced almost 70%
but still some pain seems to be there which she feels mainly during eating & drinking...
Ask her to do oral warm salt water gargling thrice a day
If it does not subside in one or two days then we need to examine her throat prescribe appropriate treatment by doing throat swab test
ok sir, thank you very much!
she is not having fever anymore
Regarding Erythromycin, these are given after the cause is exactly made out. Since I havenât physically examined her, it is inappropriate and unethical to prescribe you scheduled drugs.
should we still take the paracetamols?
No.Only if she has pain or fever
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
she has slight pain sir
so do you suggest to take a paracetamol tonight
if you could plz suggest a specifc paracetamol, otherwise, can we use one of 'Dolo-650','crocin','sinarest'?
Any one is Ok. They are just trade names
Not Sinarest, it is not just Paracetamol
ok sir, she will take Dolo-650 then
crocin is good
ohh sure then, we'll go with Crocin
Thanks for consulting. Please rate if you have time. Bye for now
sure sir, thank you very much for your help!
