Suggest remedies for sore throat and nasal discharge after I started smoking

Hello. I am 19 years old and have been smoking for about 6 months (1 pack a week). For the past week, I have had a minor sore throat, with a swollen lymph node under the right side of my jaw. Yesterday, only the right side of my throat hurt, this time much worse than before. I have been draining from my nose somewhat, and last week it felt like a nasal-drip was going down my throat. I am also experiencing slight ear pain, only on my right side. There is a little pain when swallowing food. My throat looks irritated in the mirror, and there seems to be a small white spot on my LEFT tonsil. This spot only appeared last night, after the throat pain moved to my right side. Please help! I tried getting in to see my doctor today, but he was booked.

Hello,

You may be suffering from pharygitis with eustachian tube block with cervical lymph node enlargement. So drink hot water and cool drinks. Use tablet Amoxicillin and Clavulinic acid 625 mg for five days. Salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use tablet Lecope-AD for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult.with your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
