I am suffering from sore throat, any treatment option?
Hello, I am suffering from sore throat, any treatment option? It may be misconstrued as covid infection. Please advise me some home remedy so that I can treat myself without going out.
@moucheta A sore throat is a painful, dry, or scratchy feeling in the throat. Pain in the throat is one of the most common symptoms. It accounts for more than 13 million visits to doctor’s offices each year (1Trusted Source). Most sore throats are caused by infections, or by environmental factors like dry air. Although a sore throat can be uncomfortable, it’ll usually go away on its own. Sore throats are divided into types, based on the part of the throat they affect:
Pharyngitis affects the area right behind the mouth.
Tonsillitis is swelling and redness of the tonsils, the soft tissue in the back of the mouth.
Laryngitis is swelling and redness of the voice box, or larynx.
Viruses cause about 90 percent of sore throats (2Trusted Source). Among the viruses that cause sore throats are:
the common cold
influenza — the flu
mononucleosis, an infectious disease that’s transmitted through saliva
measles, an illness that causes a rash and fever
chickenpox, an infection that causes a fever and an itchy, bumpy rash
mumps, an infection that causes swelling of the salivary glands in the neck
