Symptomatic treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome
I have gone through your query.
I would like to know few more information like
Since when you are facing this problem?
Have you recently suffered from cold? Sinusitis?
Is there any pain associated with it?
Is there any difficulty in swallowing liquid or solid food?
Do you have any acidity problem?
Do you smoke?
Most of the time this is caused by viruses and requires only symptomatic treatment.
Presently I would suggest you to avoid cold food, smoking, oily food for few days.
Salt water gargling 3 to 4 times a day for few days.
Drink plenty of water especially warm water.
Early morning drink glass of warm water and tea spoon of honey.
Along with this suck cough lozenges for a few days.
You should be fine with these measures.
Hope this helps
Take care
