Hi doctor,

I have throat pain in my right side for a month. After taking antibiotics, it subsides. When I stop taking it, it starts again. The doctor told me it as pharyngeal wall congestion. How can I cure it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your condition. You have recurrent pain due to chronic tonsilitis or pharyngitis, chronic gastritis, and persistent nasal discharge. Taking antibiotics helps a lot. Start taking medication to resolve it and have some lifestyle changes. You can take tablet Amoxyclav 625 mg (Amoxicillin with Clavulanic acid) twice daily after lunch for five days, take tablet Acecloplus (Aceclofenac with Paracetamol) twice daily for five days, and take tablet Pantop DSR (Pantoprazole) once daily before breakfast for 15 days. Use Betadine gargle. Mix 10 ml in 150 ml of lukewarm water thrice daily after food for five days. Avoid taking cold foods. Take hygienic food and water. Avid taking spicy foods and eat on time. Do not let your stomach empty for more than two hours. Do not sleep as soon as you eat.


The Probable causes:

You seem to have an infection.

Probable diagnosis:

You have chronic pharyngitis.

Treatment plan:

Preventive measures:

Follow the measures mentioned above.

Regarding follow up:

Have a follow-up after a week.
