Ive been to the doctor, gave me penicillin V as a precation. What can I do to soothe the sore throat besides drinking hot beverages. I have this nasal drip that prob makes it worse. What OTC stuff should I get. This is probably the worst sore throat since I was a kid.. ow!

Re: Pharyngitis

take something that dries up the post nasal drip like an antihistamine. the drip irritates the throat. try sucret lozenges or spray for the throat. God bless

Re: Pharyngitis

When i had pharyngitis 3 weeks ago, my doctor told me to use an albuterol inhaler, which opens the throat back up. I have asthma, so I may be different, but it worked. The doctor did say that he normally prescribed the inhaler to people who got it though. I know it is a pain, and hurts really really bad.
