Hello. Do warm water saline gargles with added salt 2-3 times a day. Take tablet levocetirizine. Take paracetamol if fever and pain. Avoid cold drinks. Avoid outing in cold. Drink hot veg soups. Take liquids more. Hot milk with honey will also help.Take cough syrup with lemon and honey. You can also add garlic or ginger or black pepper. Consult your doctor for antibiotics. Take care...

You are most probably having lymphoid tissue hypertrophy in PPW .

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query , seen your picture and understand your concern.

As per your clinical history & picture , it appears that you are most probably having lymphoid tissue hypertrophy in posterior pharyngeal wall (PPW) due to post nasal drip (PND) .

If I were your treating doctor , I would advice
Antiseptic Mouth Wash twice daily like chlorhexidine ,
Antihistaminic Tab Claritin at night &
Tab paracetamol twice daily .

You will get relief . No need to worry .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Regards.
