Brief Answer:
Hello.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query.
As per your symptoms, you have sore throat since 1 day.
If I were your treating doctor, I would have advised
Hot saline gargle daily 4 to 5 times per day.
Avoid cold and oily items and air conditioning.
Drink boiled water only.
Empirically you can take anti inflammatory medicines like paracetamol + diclofenac combination drugs.
If symptoms persists, then I probably feel you have throat infection.
This needs a course of penicillin antibiotics.
This needs clinical evaluation and prescription by the specialist.
Consult with the doctor and get treated.
Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.

Hi, I have been having a single tender node on my nech--under my chin. It only hurts when I press on it. When I press on it I feel pain that radiates to my right cheek and right ear. It has improved since yesterday. I have no other symptoms. I went to my doctor today and she sent me for bllod work (CBC, and test for Mono) I always tend to think of the worst and can't help thinking of the possibility of cancer--my worst fear!!! She told me she did not think it was a throat infection because I feel no pain when I eat and have no cough or cold symptoms. What is your opinion?

Hello, I had a throat infection. I took augmentin 625 after consulting a doctor. After completion of the dose (5 days, 10 tab), I am having loose motion (it is not pure-watery like in dirrohea, semi-liquid), everyday 4-5 times I have to go to loo (call of nature is a bit emergency in nature ). I took 1 norfloxacin and tinidazole tab and it stopped for 1 day. It started again. Is it because good bacteria got killed ? Please advise what to take for treatment...thanks
