I have an extremely bad sore throat. I can barely swallow. My lymph glands are swollen out to my jaw line. I have a runny nose. No cough. A mild fever from time to time. It s my throats that is so painful. I tried gargling with salt water. Warm water with lemon and honey. Nothing seems to help. I can t sleep because I m in so much pain.

Hello,

Warm saline gurgling should be done regularly. Get the throat to be examined by ENT doctor.

Take capsule Erythromycin once daily for five days and take Levocetirizine two tablet in the morning for sneezing.

Take tablet paracetamol for controlling fever and pain cough syrup Benadryl two times daily for controlling cough.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ashok Kumar Dash, Ophthalmologist
