Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
A repeated frequent throat infection can be due to tonsillitis or allergic pharyngitis. The problem aggravates after sleeping because of dryness.
Please send me the pictures of your throat so that I can suggest you better.
I would like to see the pictures before I prescribe you anything.
Follow up with the required information.
Thanks and regards

Hi,
The attachments are still not available to me. Please upload them again.

As the symptoms are progressing, it seems to be an infective throat pathology.
For now, start taking an anticold tablet and steam inhalation and salt water gargles.

Please send me the pictures before I suggest you anything specifically.

Take care
Thanks and regards

The attachment is to be uploaded onto the reports section. I think there is some problem that I can't find your attachments. Anyways you take tablet cefixime 200 twice daily
tablet anticold twice daily.
xylometazoline nasal drops like otrivin thrice daily
2 drops.
steam inhalation and salt water gargles.
Take all for 5 days.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
Wish you get well soon.
