Q: 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?


A:   Hello,
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.
