ENT Specialist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding sore throat and fever, throat is painful on swallowing. You are having problem of salivary stone in past.

Considering your symptoms it appears as most probably you are suffering from acute pharyngitis with fever.
You may take now-

(a) Antibiotic- Amoxicillin (500 mg) three times a day.

(b) Anti inflammatory & antipyretic- like Aceclofenac (100 mg) + Paracetamol (500 mg) twice daily.

(c) Decongestant.

(d) Warm saline gargling.

I hope this will help you, if by taking this treatment you can't get relief than consultation with ENT specialist will be necessary for examination and accordingly further treatment.

After going through your symptoms, i think You might be suffering from tonsillitis. It is the infection of tonsills which are are present in throat. You need to consult ENT specialist for the better management. For pain relieve you can take any analgesic, even paracetamol works well, along with salt water or antiseptic throat gargling to be done twice a day.
Thank you
