Hello doctor,

I am a 13-year-old male. I have been recently struggling with sickness, yet, I do not know which one. I have 94° F, sore throat, and it hurts while swallowing. I can not breathe without coughing, and I blink a lot. Please give an opinion about my problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, is your temperature reading correct? You have written 94° F that is very low, and we call such low temperature as Hypothermia. If that is your temperature, you need to keep yourself warm. Drink hot coffee or hot soup.

As your other symptoms are concerned, it seems like a throat infection with probable tonsillitis.

I advise you do salt water gargling three to four times a day.

Also, you can take tablet Aceclofenac 50 mg three times a day and Paracetamol 500 mg three times a day.

If your cough is dry, you can take syrup Reswas (Levodropropizine and Chlorpheniramine maleate) 10 ml three times a day, or if it is a wet cough, you can take syrup Tus-Q-X (Ambroxyl Hydrochloride) 10 ml three times a day.

If symptoms persist, revert back.
