Hi doctor,

My throat is showing white rashes all over. I do not know what that is. Now, I have fever and throat pain also. The ear is closing and opening sometimes. I consulted a doctor earlier. She prescribed me Metorda 500 antibiotics for bacterial infection.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms are fever, throat pain, and ear blockage. Your clinical findings according to you are white rashes all over the throat.

The two most probable causes in your case seem to be:

  1. Bacterial infection (streptococcal sore throat).
  2. Viral infection (common cold).

I suggest:

  • Throat swab for culture and sensitivity.
  • Complete blood count.

Other possible causes include:

  1. Allergies.
  2. Environmental irritants.
  3. GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).

You may continue with the prescribed antibiotics. Additionally, Paracetamol for fever/pain and warm saline gargle may help.

Also, your ear blockage suggests you are having nose blockage/discharge too which is causing your eustachian tube to get blocked. So a Xylometazoline nasal drop in both your nostrils may help. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Avoid having cold drinks or exposure to cold air for a few days. Be sure to drink plenty of water.
