Chronic Pharyngitis due to diabetes

Detailed Answer:
Hi sir,
I have gone through your query.

It suggests that you maybe suffering from chronic pharyngitis.Cause of the recurrent disease is diabetes because in this condition mucosa of the throat more prone for any infection.
For to reach the near diagnosis and to exclude the other disease, you may go for throat swab for smear, culture and antibiotic sensitivity.
I personally recommend to you that you may take tincture benzoin or menthol steam inhalation for quite soothing and strict control on diabetes.
In resistant cases, electrocautery or chemical cautery may give symptomatic relief for a long time in this condition.

If you have any doubt , I will be available for your query.
