Brief Answer:
follow the advises, and see how it stays..

Detailed Answer:
Hello xxxxxxxxxxxxx, Welcome to HealthcareMagic,
I've gone through your query and understand your concerns,

As per your description, these symptoms mostly pointing towards a respiratory tract infections (mostly viral in nature, however, can also be due to bacterial infections)...

Try to avoid cold drinks, dairy products(including yogurt also), sour foods for the time being...take ample rest...also please stay away from over-crowded places for the time being...

Betadine gargle will be helpful for throat irritations. Do the gargling three times daily for next 4-5 days.. also put a pinch of salt in lukewarm water and gargle twice daily as an alternative fashion for next few days...For fever, take Tab PARACETAMOL 650mg Stat dose (for now) followed by thrice daily(after some food)...

Taking steam inhalation three to four times a day will be beneficial additionally...drink a lot of water to remain well hydrated throughout the day...

Just follow all these, and observe how you stay on the due course...

In case the fever and throat irritation are still persisting/any further worsening of symptoms, I'd suggest visiting a nearby Internal Medicine specialist for a prompt check-up as you may need a course of antibiotics therapy also...

Take Care
Kind Regards

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.
