Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding pain in throat on swallowing with bloody phlegm. I had also thought about your treatment you have already taken.

I am suspecting that you are probably having acute upper respiratory tract infection. Recurrence of your problem is because of break in treatment.

To confirm the diagnosis and to manage it you are advice for-

1- Culture and sensitivity of throat swab.

2- X-Ray Paranasal sinuses.

3- X-Ray chest.

4- Blood- CBC, ESR, Prothrombin time, blood sugar (F & PP).

Till the investigation reports are awaited you may take-

1- Tab Paracetamol.

2- Warm saline gargling.

3- Mucolytic expectorant.

4- It will be better to take antibiotics according to culture and sensitivity of throat swab.

I hope your query is being answered.
