Concerning: An unwanted erection that lasts 4 hours is a serious situation that can damage the penis. If you truly require erectile help, perhaps a lower dose of cialis or switching to Viagra would avoid this side effect

Lots of ways: Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen mostly. Gargling with warm salt water, one fourth tsp salt per 8 ounces. Chloraseptic spray, Benzocaine throat losenges. If more severe pain may have an infection, go see a doctor. For bad viral pharyngitis we sometimes use steroids, and for strep you need an antibiotic.
