Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to gastritis.

For that, you can give tablets pantoprazole, syp mucaine gel after consultation.

Along with that avoid hot and spicy foods. In case of fever kindly give tablets acetaminophen.

In that case, he may require complete hemogram and detailed evaluation. Do steam inhalation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
