start antibiotics preferably amoxycillin and clavulinic acid. Take a mucolytic tablet. Nasal drops with steam inhalation twice daily and warm saline gargle. Do all these for minimum three days. Wait for a week. if symptoms persists take a ct scan of sinuses.

Hi I am 30 years old and have Hashimoto s. I eat a very clean diet and trying to heal my symptoms of hashis naturally. Unfortunately my immune system still seems to be compromised as I seem to get sick quite frequently these days. About a month ago I got a very bad cold with a very bad sore throat. Since then I have had recurring sore throats every other week (sometimes every few days) or so. New sore throat started tonight it feels like a month in the back of my throat. My throat is red but doesn t seem to look like the pictures of grandulsr pharyngitis I ve looked at. Does this sound like it could be grandular pharyngitis? Or maybe a sinus infection? I don t really have any sinus infection symptoms other than a headache the last week. What can i do other than taking antibiotics? I d rather heal this naturally if possible. But I m so tired of feeling bad!

I have a sore throat. It started Friday, and I still have it just as bad--to where I try not to swallow as much (because it hurts) Normally when I get a sore throat it means a cold is on the way and I start to take Zicam. The sore throat normally lasts 2 days and the cold continues. I have not had a sore throat that lasts more than 2 days. Could it just be the cold or is there something else it could be?
