Sore Throat and fever treatment methods?
Hello, I am a 34-year-old woman looking for something to treat my fever. I have a sore throat that started very quickly, a fever for the past 2 days, and pain when swallowing. Please recommend some home therapy.
@shikha In most cases, viruses are the cause of sore throats. In some cases, Group A Streptococcus can cause a throat infection. The only way to identify Group A Streptococcus is by taking a rapid strep test. Therefore, you should be referred to a health care practitioner who can test for the virus. For lowering fever, acetaminophen typically works within 2 hours at the recommended dosage.
