Finish medication as directed and follow directions with drinking plenty of water. Do not let yourself be dehydrated. Maintain prper diet, bland foods snd well balanced vitamins. Vitamin B12 is recommended.Try to soothe your throat with longezes. Avoid irritants including alcohol, smoking, and acidic foods. Antiinflammitory medication may help. Your throat needs time to heal. Warm salt water rinses and non alcohol rinses are recommended.
Thank you for your inquiry and I hope you feel better soon after your throat heals.
