Sore throat - March 11th 2013, 07:57 PM

Hey guys!

So I have what my parents think is a throat infection (white spots on tonsils, swollen tonsils, mouth and lymph glands and also a hell of a lot of pain :/), and I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon at the doctors. But basically, the pain is bothering me a lot every time I swallow and talk, and when I breathe it's kinda uncomfortable. I've tried lozanges, they don't touch it. I've had ibuprofen, tried hot and cold drinks and food (too hard to swallow). I was just wondering if any of you have any other suggestions . Normally I can sort out sore throats, but this pain is different :/

I'm sorry to hear you've got that.

I've had colds like that, that just won't go away and are extremely painful, I sympathise.

The only thing I might recommend are VocalZone (by Kestrel Medical Ltd.) if you haven't already tried them.
Only warning with them: don't use them too much, though - it would damage your throat.

I hope you can find something!

Make sure you rest plenty to keep you strength up so your body can fight it and drink plenty. You might be better drinker warmish water since I'm pretty sure cold water can make your throat swell more. Even better drink things like lemon juice since this can help get rid of any mucus in your throat too.

You could also try chewing some garlic (gross I know) but I just did a google and read that it's a natural anti-biotic so it might be worth the try! My mum used to make my mix salt with water and gargle it too so you could also try that.

Hope it helps a little

Thanks for the help guys, this can be closed.

Glad that you are okay, as for me when I have sore throat, my first remedy is to gargle water with salt, somehow it eases the situation and eventually after having a good rest, the sore throat will likely gone, sometimes it won't and it leads to cough.
