I have throat pain. The pain aggravates during eating or drinking. I also feel the pain while even swallowing saliva. I have the pain for the past three days. I am currently taking lozenges (Strepsils).
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thanks for posting the query.
I have gone through the image (attachment removed to protect patient identity) thoroughly, and I believe that you are suffering from acute granular pharyngitis.
You need to start with home remedies such as,
1. Drinking frequent sips of warm water.
2. OTC (over-the-counter) pain relievers such as Ibuprofen or Diclofenac.
3. Use Povidone iodine mouth gargles.
4. Avoid coffee, smoking, chilled food and beverages.
If the symptoms do not subside within a couple of days, then you need to consult an ENT specialist for a thorough examination and management. Hope this answers your query; revert to me if you have any follow up questions.
