I am a 34-year-old female. I have a sore throat, difficulty swallowing, and a persistent mild fever. I have not taken any medications for it yet, but I have been drinking warm water regularly. Can you please explain if there are any effective ways to treat it? I would like to know what steps I can take to alleviate these symptoms and recover as quickly as possible.
With the symptoms you have mentioned, you are possibly having acute pharyngitis. There is nothing that you need to be worried about as this is a very common entity that we come across and is treatable.
Take a tablet containing a combination of Amoxicillin 500 mg and potassium clavulanate 125 mg one tablet three times a day for 5 days. This is an antibiotic and can create abdominal discomfort in a few days, if you happen to develop loose motions, you can start probiotics one tablet in the morning for the next 1 week.
Take tablet Zerodol p (or its equivalent) one tablet two times a day after food 12 hours apart for 5 days.
Take tablet Pan D (or its equivalent) one tablet once a day before food for 1 week.
Practice salt water gargles 8 to 10 times a day for 15 days.
Avoid oily spicy and cold food and beverages.
Keep sipping on boiled warm water every 3 hours.
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption as much as possible.
All precautionary measures have to be followed as much as possible to prevent any recurrences. The advice mentioned in points 4 to 7 is extremely important and needs to be followed to prevent relapse of symptoms.
I hope this helps.
