Hi doctor,

I am suffering from a sore throat and ear pain. I have lots of lumps in the back of my throat. I had Amoxicillin and gastro-resistant tablets. I have a previous history of GERD. I am terrified that I have throat cancer. Please help.

Hi doctor,

Yes, my throat is sore when swallowing and getting some click sound. I do smoke. I am currently taking Amoxicillin.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest you an oral decongestant, and nasal decongestant drops for a few days. Also, tablet vitamin C once daily.
  • Avoid smoking and use Hexidine gargles. Continue Amoxicillin.
  • If the lesion does not subside or improve in a week of treatment, then it should be investigated.
