Posted on Fri, 24 Oct 2014
Question: Hi
i travel weekly once.I work in a environment where i meet lot of people.
Recently a week back ,I got cold , nothing too heavy but it went away in 7-8 hours of sneezing out mucus from my nose. Two days after cold went away i developed pain in my left throat while swallowing and eating.
After that the pain became too much. I immediately took one allegra-d tablet and the next morning throat pain went away. I took 1 tablet for every 12 hours after that . After a total of 5 tablets i stopped taking them since all the symptoms are gone. After two days a stopping allegra-D i again developed pain in my throat. So i had to take one more allegra-D today morning. Its been less than 12 hours and right now i feel my ears have started aching also.
