Brief Answer:
It is the throat infection, and needs proper treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Dr. Hanif warmly Welcomes you!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I will take care all of your medical concerns.

You have got a throat infection and that is causing you to feel the foreign body sensations and hurts you when you swallow.

If I was your treating physician I would have prescribed you with Azithromycin if not allergic to. Plus Ibuprofen and Loratadine by mouth.

Do gargles with listerine (or any mouthwash you have at home). Change your toothbrush. Avoid spicy fact foods and sodas. Take plenty of fluids and proper rest.

You may need a prescription from your primary care physician for the antibiotics.


Have a wonderful time ahead. Hope I answered all of your questions. Let me know if you have any further clinical concerns. I will be happy to get back to you shortly. If satisfied here, please give a five star rating and don't forget to close the discussion.

Regards!
