Detailed Answer:
Hii. Pain throat may be due to many causes like pharyngitis, tonsillitis,acid reflux or it may be due to post nasal drip coming from the sinuses. Post nasal drip also cause hawking sensation of the throat. You can start fluticasone nasal spray, antiallergic tablet, steam inhalation, betadine gargle. Start omeprazole tablet to decrease acid reflux which will increase the symptoms. Do a X ray paranasal sinuses to see the cause of post nasal drip if present. Review with reports.
