Do you have any idea what I might have?

Patient : Do you have any idea what I might have? My throat hurts when I cough or swallow, that happened this morning, then I just lost my voice recently like a couple of minutes ago...
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. You seem to be suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection. A post nasal drip c an cause a viral infection, laryngitis and pharyngitis. Do warm saline gargles three times a day after meals. Chew lozenges which have ginger and lemon. It will help soothe the throat. Give some rest to your throat.
