thanks for your query

History seems that you had sever sever pharyngitis with lingual tonsillitis.

After completion of injectables, take oral antibiotic like azithromycine 500mg once a day for 3 days from tomorrow onwards, add anti inflammatory like tab Chymoral plus and anti histaminics like levocet.

Do antiseptic gargles.

Avoid cold and junk feeds, smoking and alcohol.

Take care, thanks.
