Sore throat, pain on one side of throat while swallowing, coughing, post nasal drip. Treatment?

I had the flu over two weeks ago and it initially presented with a sore throat; the sore throat went away. But, two days later I got throat pain on one side when I swallow and it still has not gone away even though most of my flu is gone. I did have significant coughing that is almost gone now and some post nasal drip . But, my concern is this throat pain that won t go away and it s been 12 days.

I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of the information provided it appears that the cause of your throat pain is in nose and /or sinuses. Post nasal drip is suggesting this as a possible cause. I would advise you for a sinus X ray and a ENT consultation to resolve the issue. For the time being I can advise you for decongestant nose drops, an analgesic and betadine gargles.

I hope this answers your concern. Feel free to contact me if you require more information about it
