Suggest treatment for throat discomfort and headache

For almost a week now i have been feeling tired all the time. My throat feels funny, It doesn t hurt it just doesn t feel normal. I had my tonsils taken out about 6 years ago and haven t had any sore sore throats since. The worst part is I ve had a horrible headache for 3 days now that won t go away. I have taken otc pain medicine but nothing seems to help..

Hi,

As per the history you have provided my thoughts are as follows:
* Symptoms are most probably suggestive of viral infection as you have headache and other symptoms as you have mentioned
* Pharyngitis is a known complication in any such infection whether bacterial or viral
* Pharyngitis give the funny feeling
* It seems that you are not taking adequate medicines or dose as needed, please ask for the proper doses and duration of OTC medicines that you are taking
* Povidone iodine gargles
* Plenty of warm liquid s and soft warm diet should be taken
* Taking bed rest helps a lot
* Consult your doctor for clinical evaluation, examination and investigations of blood and throat swab to decide the further treatment required

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

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
