Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your query regarding persistanat sore throat
for two weeks which hurts to eat and even swallow.
Since two weeks are passed and severity of pain is not decreased this indicates ther are some superadded secondary infection is going on.
To manage it you are advice to go for culture and sensitivity of throat swab, this report will tell weather there is any bacterial infection is existing or not , secondarily it will also help in deciding antibiotic if any bacterial infection is detected.
Till the culture report is awaited you can take-
(a) Antibiotic - Amoxicillin
(625 mg ) three times a day.This may be change after the report of culture and sensitivityof throat swab.
(b) Anti inflammatory & analgesic
(c) Gargling with antisetic as betadine
I hope this will help you.
