Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This is called chronic pharyngitis
, it can be due to many conditions, including viral/bacterial infection. It can also be a condition called laryngo-pharyngeal reflux seen in patients with reflux esophagitis
. It would be better to drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with povidone iodine
mouth wash, also to take medications if he is having any gastric problems.
