Sore throat, dizziness, swollen gums. Any ideas?

Hi, this is actually a question regarding my boyfriend. Since sunday he has been sick, he has a sore throat which is leading up to his ear, also he gets dizzy from walking even a short distance. We were at the walk in today in which case the doctor was very rushed, and didnt bother to take a look at his gums which are very swollen and sore. Anything we can do?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding sore throat and swelling on gums of your boyfriend. He is actually suffering from acute upper respiratory tract infection with gingivitis.

There are possibilities of viral fever. Though you are already examined by doctor so carryon treatment adviced by your doctor , the only thing is be added is Anti septic mouth wash.

Wishing for speedy recovery.
