What is the cure for dry throat? - Online Doctor Chats
I am Dr
I need help with my throat
most of the time its dry
What other symptoms do you have?
especially when I wake up in the morning i feel more dryness
also get some mucus when I gargle...
feels better when I drink hot water or hot tea...
can you help?
Do you have fever?
no i dont have fever
but I have cold
nose gets blocked but I use nasal drops
Since how many days?
its been 6 to 7 days
Did you have fever in the beginning?
i dont remember.. I dont think I had fever
What colour is the mucous?
most of the time white but sometimes light green
Is it getting better?
cold has reduced and green mucus has reduced almost nill but dryness is still there in throat
I think it is because the normal is coming back to normal
normal flora is getting normal
sorry what you mean by flora getting normal?
Mucous is covered by non-disease causing germs called normal flora
During some infection it gets disturbed
When it is getting normal, dryness results
oh ok but i am not taking any medicines
Immunity works well
medicines are just for props
If the dryness is not that bad then you can just take sualin tablets
its bad... sometimes too irritating thats why I am contacting you
In that case you can try tab allegra
one tablet before sleeping
i feel like there is some layer of mucus on my throat and thats causing this dryness...
Kofrid syrup may also be tried
Either of these choices can be tried
ok I will buy these tabs and syrup
One of these should be taken at a time
Ok then I will take syrup
Since Kofrid may not be readily available
sure.. do you think I shd visit the doc for this dryness?
I think you will recover in a few days
nothing serious right :)
You do not need a visit to a doctor
If you do not recover in 3 - 4 days then you can see a doctor
It does not seem serious
thanks a lot
Thanks for consulting
have a good day
You too have a nice time
