Hello,

Thanks for your query.

It suggests that you have repeated throat infection.

It occurs if you frequently take cold beverages or exposed more to cold climate.

Do salt water gargling 4-5 times a day and please avoid cold beverages and have warm milk or tea or soups which gives you good relief.

If it does not subside, visit a physician, you might have to take a course of antibiotic.


Hope I have answered your query.

I will be available for your followup queries if any.

Wishing you good health.

Regards,your query.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

I Would like to know few things, so that i would be able to suggest you better:

1.) Since how long are you having this Problem?
2.) Do you have Fever?
3.) Do you have Pain while swallowing?

Your History suggest you have a Sore throat which could be secondary to a Throat Infection, either Tonsillitis or Pharyngitis.

Kindly get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist so that he/she can examine you and run few blood tests to rule out the exact cause. Once confirmed, the treatment will depend upon the cause.

In addition to this, you can try some lifestyle changes:

1.) Get adequate rest
2.) Drink plenty of fluids
3.) Do salt water gargles several times a day
4.) Use a cool air humidifier to eliminate dry air that may further irritate a sore throat
5.) Keep away from cigarette smoke
6.) Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up

Wish you Good Health.
