Welcome to icliniq,

As per your history, it seems you are suffering from chronic granular pharyngitis. Chronic granular pharyngitis have an alteration in the mucous membrane of the pharynx. They are aggravated by acid reflux, allergens, viral and bacterial infection. For now as you are having pain over palatoglossal arch and pain over left ear you can take following medication

1)Tab Levocetrizine 5 mg po od at night for 7 days

2)Tab Rabeprazole 20 mg po Od for 7 days in an empty stomach

3)Tab paracetamol 500 mg + ibuprofen 400mg 1 tab po sos(when ever you feel severe pain)

3)Gargle with 1% betadine 10ml mixed with warm water 10ml 3-4 times a day for 5 days

  • Take steam inhalation
  • Avoid spicy and oily foods
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol

Hope this will help you Thank you
