hello..Thanks for using healthcare magic..I have gone through your available history..It seems your friend is having viral pharyngitis,a kind of throat infection.U can give more fluids to her also ask her to gargle with warm water every 4 hourly..she can also have steam inhalation.This will soothe her throat.Just check if she is prescribed antihistaminics,dryness could be a side effect ohf that drug..hope for speedy recovery of your friend..thanks
