Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Throat irritation could be either due to a viral infection or due to any irritants consumed along with food. In either of the cases there are chances of secondary infections with bacteria which can lead to high grade fever and make you sick.

Do gargle with antiseptic solutions like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily after food. This will kill bacteria existing and reduce the chances of bacterial infections. Also do take Benadryl if the throat irritation is more and unbearable.

Watch the progress of symptoms closely and if you the symptoms do not improve in the next 2-3 days, consult your physician for other treatment.

Hope I answered your query. Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Good luck for your exams...

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Hi! I am a 30 y.o. gay male, no medical history. Over the last 2 years, I have been having pretty bad sore throat episodes, throat infections, tonsilitis etc. I also had a lymph node that wouldnt go away... I have been fine for months and now again I have a bad sore throat with fever etc. But now I know I think I know the reason but I am too shy to talk to a doctor about it. I enjoy giving deep oral sex (deepthroating), and I realized that everytime I had a sore throat (that lasted for days), I had had that kind of oral sex a few days before... Can you confirm please? And what do I need to do? I am a little worried... Thanks.
