Thanks for writing to HH.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your query regarding throat pain and cold
. As you observed that your throat infection
appeared before cold, it does not matter because nose and throat both are exposed to external air and air born infection may catch any of these two or both these or one after the other. But once the nose gets infected infection may reach to throat due to posterior nasal drip, and infection from nose may also reach to sinuses
To treat your this problem yu should take ANTIBIOTIC preferably according to culture and sensitivity of throat swab, along with antibiotic you can take MUCOLYTIC
and DECONGESTANTand STEAM INHALATION for thining out secretion and easy expectoration.
I hope this wil help you.
