This is XXXX from XXXXXXX
Hello XXXX, how are you?
i have been suffering from sort of throat infection(not sure if its infection) since yesterday and would need your advice on any medication
and a lil feverish too
thank you doc!
can you describe the throat irritation
is it just like irritation
or is it more like pain?
its more like a pain in the left side from outside
and in the right, i find diff to swallow food or anythin
feeling v tired and restless too
had slight temperatue last night
do you have any pain on the inside of the throat as well?
yeah i do
Sounds more like a throat infection
I would suggest you to do salt water gargling
will do it
put 1 teaspoon of salt (5 grams) in one glass of water (200 ml)
the water should be XXXXXXX warm
and do the gargling
sure, will do it doc
repeat it every 6 hours
that should take care of the pain, fever, irritation and cough
wait and see if it gets better for 2 days
for how many days do i need to take the medicine
if in 2 days time the throat pain and fever increase, then you might need a course of antibiotics
for which you will have to consult a doctor locally
do you have any doubts?
thanks much for your assistance
notihing for now
bye doc..Thanks again!
You are welcome
get well soon
have a good Sunday ahead
