Brief Answer:
Sore throat

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

From the complaints it seems to be chronic pharyngitis or tonsillitis.

It is advisable to avoid any medicines during pregnancy. It would be better if you can send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.

Use Hexidine gargles and take tablet vitamin-C once daily.

Follow up with the required information. Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
