Brief Answer:
Upper respiratory tract infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query.
In my opinion, you might be having upper respiratory tract infection.
If I were your treating doctor, I would have prescribed penicillin antibiotics + anti inflammatory medicines for 5 to 7 days+antihistamines andmucolytics combination drugs twice a day for 5 days. You can get these medication with your local doctor prescription.
Do Betadine gargling twice daily. Avoid oily and cold items.
Steam inhalation regularly.
All these are prescription medicines, so I would advise you to consult with the doctor and get treated.
Hope my answers have helped you
pleased to help you further. Thanks.

age-28,ht-5ft 5,wt-55,
I am smoking for last 2 years . I usually smoke at-most 10 cigrate in a day but not a regular smoker.
From last 7 days I felt pain on my right side of my throat. I consulted a ENT specialist yesterday and asked her is it symptoms of throat cancer,she said it is the reversible stage of cancer and prescribed only Betadine Gagelling without other medicine . Is it really cancer symptom? I think it is only due to throat infection,am I right?

Hi I'm 28 and 16 weeks pregnant and its my first baby. I usually get constipated very easily and in pregnancy it has worsen. I'm using Isphagul (pure psyllium husk) mixed in water and now i'm having a bowel movement every alternative day. That's some how fine, but now I have a severe pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds. Its painful for the next 3 to 4 hours and then the pain disappears but the pain is too much and I cant bear. Hence I started using Xyloproct and Betadine ointments in that affected area. Is it good to use these ointments during pregnancy? If not please suggest some alternative and help.
