Welcome to icliniq,

As per your history you are suffering from allergic pharyngitis. Tonsillar Hypertrophy grade 1 is normal you don't have to worry.

Pharyngitis are inflammation of the back of throat. Some of the common causes of the pharyngitis includes : allergens, Laryngopharyngeal reflux, bacterial infection. Cause of pharyngitis in your case seems to be allergens. As your are having pain in throat occasionally, you have to take following precaution:

1)Avoid foods or cold water that seems to initiate your symptoms.

2)Avoid cold and dust as it can initiate your symptoms.

3)As gastritis can aggravate your condition, avoid hot and spicy foods.

4)Sleep after 2-3 hours of your meals.

5)Take steam inhalation
