Sore throat with fever and chills

Patient : Male, 37, I have a frequent sore throat. Sore throat with feverish feeling / fever and chills, excess mucus and blocked nose. This is going on for the last 14/15 years. In my childhood I have suffered with frequent tonsil infection or tonsillitis. Is there any permanent cure ? Is there any test to detect properly that which bacteria or virus is the culprit ?

This can be due to chronic sinus infection or other causes like Malaria, urinary tract infection, Pneumonia, Typhoid fever. I would advise you to get evaluated. Get following investigations done: 1. Hemogram 2. Urine culture 3. Ultrasound Abdomen 4. Malaria Antigen 5. Chest X-Ray 6. X-ray PNS Take Paracetamol for fever. Do steam inhalation. Share my opinion with your Doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
