Suggest treatment for sore throat and breathing difficulty

Thanks for responding:) I have had a sore throat for the past 3 weeks, at first the back of my throat was red, irritated, and hurt to swallow. Then, it got better, but seemed to move down my throat/chest...like right above my collar bone...it feels like a burning feeling, pressure on my chest, sometimes I feel like its difficult to breathe, and I ve been hoarse for the past few weeks too, coughing and spitting up sometimes light green gunk

Hi,

Sore throat and difficulty breathing symptoms are mainly due to upper respiratory tract infection known as pharyngitis. I would suggest you to take antibiotics like Augmentin or Azithromycin for 5 days. You should take anti-inflammatory painkiller Ibuprofen for relief from pain and inflammation. Chew a Vitamin C pellet daily. Do warm saline gargles and take steam inhalation with vaporizers. Avoid cold carbonated beverages. Visit ENT specialist once and get X-ray chest and sputum test done to find out exact cause and start treatment accordingly.

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

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
