Brief Answer:
Sore throat.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
Thanks for writing to us.

According to your symptoms you might have Sorethroat due to upper respiratory tract infection.
All you need to do
Betadine gargles 3 times a day.You can get Betadine gargle solution at your local pharmacy.
You can take Antihistamines like Cetrizine 5 mg for 3 days for cold before bed.
You can take Lozenges like strepsils.
Do steam inhalation 3 times a day for 15 minutes.You will get relief from sorethroat and cold as well.
Drink plenty of warm water.
Avoid oily and cold food.
Avoid exposure to cold air like AC.
You have mentioned do not have fever hence you need not take medication like antibiotics.
If you will not improve after 3 days or if you will get fever I would start Antipyretics like Paracetamol and Antibiotics like Azihtromycin 500 mg after food once in a day for 3 days.You need to get this medication with local doctor prescription.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.

Hi, I have what seems like continuous nasal drip down my throat which makes my saliva very slimy and it bothers my throat, its like this mucus is getting stuck in my throat and I need to clear my throat all the time. I have had this symptom every day for the past year or so. I went to see an ENT and he could not explain why this was happening, he suggested that it might be due to acid reflux, I took nexium for 30 days and it did not help, I even had a gastroscopy/endoscopy and everything seemed fine. In the past 2 days, I feel this film in my throat and upper respiratory tract and when I breath in and out I feel this film and as if I am not breathing normally. How can I get rid of this.
