Hi Thanks for posting the query.

If the fish bone is stuck in the throat you will not be able to swallow any thing and it will be very painful. But again if symptoms persists or gets worsen I suggest you to consult ENT specialist and get the throat examined once. I usually prescribe a dose of antibiotics like Bactoclav 625 for 5 days. As this is prescribed medicine you can get it on a prescription from a local doctor. Along with it you can take a Tab. Combiflam 1 tablet for 2 times a day for 2 days. Do throat gargling with warm water for 3-4 days

Any issue do follow up
Take care.
