What is pharyngitis and how do you treat it?

Pharyngitis is when the back of the throat is inflamed and swollen.

In pharyngitis, the back of the throat is affected, namely the area between the tonsils and the vocal chords, which is known as the larynx.

Hypothermia, chain smoking, talking too much and a liking for very hot or very spicy food are all factors, when they act in combination with an infectious agent (viruses, bacteria and fungi), which cause acute or chronic inflammation of the mucous membranes in the throat. A ticklish throat, a feeling of dryness, a persistent dry cough, a hoarse voice and pain when swallowing are the most common signs of this illness. If acute pharyngitis manifests itself as ARI and ARVI, these unpleasant symptoms can be accompanied by a fever, a headache, muscular pain and other symptoms of intoxication.

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
