Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query congestion in nose and throat choking which are pointing towards a condition known as granular pharyngitis/ sinusitis. Need not to worry. I would suggest you to start with warm saline gargles and betadine gargles 3-4 times a day. For pain and swelling you should take ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Consult ENT specialist for proper diagnosis and rule out condition like strep throat and viral infection . Doctor may prescribe antibiotics (penicillin or amoxicillin ) or anti viral drug depending upon the diagnosis along with decongestants and anti inflammatory . Avoid hot, sharp , spicy food substances , do warm saline rinses and carbonated beverages.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
