    Suggest treatment for granular pharyngitis

Posted on Fri, 21 Jul 2017 in Lung and Chest disorders
Question: Hi!
I have enclosed a Picture of my daughters throat.
She had these a week ago, and then they became sore- With pain when swallowing. Then the pain kind of went away for a couple days, and now the "bumps you see in Picture" spread, and the pain is back. Any idea what this might be?
She has seen a doc about a week ago when the first appeared, but he just glansed inside and said it looked fine??

Brief Answer:
This is granular pharyngitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the image you have attached.
It is mostly granular pharyngitis.
It is mostly due to bacterial infection.
So start following treatment.
1. Antibiotic like cefixime or amoxicillin
2. Antihistamine and anti inflammatory drugs.
3. Warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
4. Chlorhexidine mouth gargles 2-3 times a day.
5. Ask her to drink plenty of fluids orally and keep herself hydrated.
6. Ask her to avoid oily, spicy and hard to chew food.
Don't worry, she will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your daughter. Thanks.
