Hi,

The pain at this spot is usually due to chondritis and secondary to viral infection. You can certainly take an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen 3 times a day if it suits you. Chew the food well before swallowing. Warm compresses may help. If there is no relief it is better to consult an ENT surgeon and get additional antibiotic, oral steroids and Serratiopeptidase for early recover if you do not have diabetes. Endoscopy of the area will rule out any internal swelling and is a good idea.

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

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
