Patient :I'm having bad pain in my throat, I know I'm coming down with a cold as I have symptoms but I just look at my throat at the roof of my mouth is a yellowey colour and my Tonsils are inflamed with light dots on them?
Welcome to ATD.Thank you for the query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of acute bacterial tonsillitis.
Here are the things you can do to feel better. They include:
Get enough rest
Drink warm fluids to ease throat pain
Use a cool-mist vaporizer or humidifier in your room
Gargle with warm salt water
Suck on lozenges containing benzocaine or other anesthetics
Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
Consult a doctor for antibiotic prescription [azithromycin 500mg daily for 5 days].
Hope this helps. Take care.
