Immediate prescription antibiotics recommended....
The difficulty in swallowing you are having could be related to swollen angina (tonsillitis
) or edema of upper respiratory tract
and swollen nodes under your right jawbone might indicate a possible:
- angina (throat infection/tonsillitis)
- bad teeth at that side
- ear infection
It is a must to start a course of prescription antibiotics (I usually prescribe a combination of Amoxycillin/Clavulonate and Metronidazole
for at least 10 days). A further evaluation from your doctor is needed to start antibiotic treatment.
You should also:
- keep a good oral hygiene
- do gargle with water and salt
- take a teaspoon of olive oil in the morning following by a teaspoon of honey
- take otc acetaminophen/ibuprofen
to reduce swelling and pain
- drink more water
Salivating more than usually and mucus filled is related to the throat/bad teeth infection you might be experiencing.
A further evaluation of your ear is needed to rule out ear infection which is an usual complication.
Hope it was of help!
