I currently on pain killers naproxen and co codamol for muscle pain which is caused by a virus now the throat part of virus is here. Also taking tyrozets lozenges. Can’t get hold of doctor today or tomorrow plus most likely not going to get antibiotics because its a virus anyway

    Hi, Chosy. If you are finding it difficult to swallow a bolus of food because of the muscular action involved , your only option is fluids. You need to drink lots of citrus fruit juice because of the vitamin C content. You may also like to rub some table salt onto your tonsils using your middle finger. To do this you need to wet it first then dip it into the salt, which will then stick to your finger; you then gently apply it to your tonsils one at a time; then close your mouth & feel its action. Repeating this in1-2 or 2-3 hours is recommended. You may swallow the saliva secreted. This will help kill the causative organisms by denaturing their nucleus. Lozenges I don’t think is helpful for tonsillitis because it does not get anywhere near them. Antibiotic is ineffective if virus is the causative organism. Relying on your immune system also helps & this you do by increasing the blood supply to the area by using hot water bottle on your ears & end of your jaw bones. Ice cream feeds the causative organisms hence more mucus is produced. Milk shake from a straw is ok. As the pain gets better, you can start eating light & easily digestible food of any choice & on to normal food. I Hope this remedy is helpful.
