Brief Answer:
Steam inhalation...

Detailed Answer:

I am sure your doctor would have meant not to take any food/drink that are cold and refrigerated.

Now about your current problem, it's good that you are not running fever. In this circumstance I suggest you to perform steam inhalation three times a day. It will prevent nasal inflammation to spread to your ears. Along with it, I would add oral antihistamines such as levocetrizine once a day and nasal decongestant drops for additional benefits.

You can visit a doctor nearby and get the listed medications prescribed.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Hi, I haven't gone for a strep test so I couldn't tell you if this is my problem. What I would like to know is what is most effective at relieving a severely painful throat. My tonsils look yellow and spotted like raw chicken skin. I have several white spots on the roof of my mouth and throat that look like pus and are surrounded by dark red patches. I have a fever of 100-101.5, headaches, body aches, chills and sweats, nasal inflammation and drip, cough and ear aches. I am taking 800 mg of ibuprofen 3x daily. I have a brand new bottle of (60) 500mg amoxicillin capsules that I was going to consider taking 1 3x per day for 2wks but I prefer to avoid antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. For the record, I am a 43 year old male in good physical shape currently working on a project in a remote area of Brazil for the next 2 months. Because of the remote location, access to medical care is almost non existent unless it is an emergency. I have teas, salt, water, coffee and honey. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

For 11 days doctor prescribed prednisone in order to suppress the nose inflammation and now since that course she is daily feeling the nose blockage. From past some days she is having breathing problems which is making the conditions worse.Even the Romilast (10 mg) tab and Seroflo 100 inhaler is not having much effect. Did the steroid course made the conditions worse because prior to the course of steroids the nose blockage problem was not everyday.Please advice what should be done.
