Hello.: Hello. Don't know if this is regarding an adult or a child. Will answer as if an adult. Consider warm salt water gargles at least four times a day to assist with inflammation. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication for pain and to reduce fever. Obtain a throat culture. Untreated streph throat can lead to serious complications down the line. Take care. ...Read more
Post-tonsillectomy: You can use Chloraseptic spray after tonsillectomy, but it usually provides limited, short term relief. Talk to your surgeon about his/her preferences. I tell my patients they can use it, but as I mentioned, it is of limited use. Sometimes 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water to rinse and swish is soothing-no gargling. Besides that, take whatever pain Rx your doctor recommended. ...Read more
A little bit is ok. I mean after all, you put the stuff in your mouth, how can you not swallow any? Its certainly not poisonous.
I s'pose if you swallow to much, your body will try to get rid of it quickly, ie: you'll throw up. ...Read more
Yes: Should pose no problems.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not necessay: Following a tonsillectomy, a septic crust covers the surgically exposed tonsillar fossa or raw area that is exposed to the outside air. Inasmuch as the oral cavity is not sterile, the patient's normal immune response is all that is necessary to heal the raw surface. I would think that chloraseptic would cause more burning. However it would be safe to use. ...Read more
Chloraseptic spray and drops only reliev chloraseptic spray and drops only relieve mildly can' my doctor said something abou my doctor said something?
I just had a tonsilectomy 3 days ago the pain pills are not helping I've got canker sores everywhere I need relief now can I use chloraseptic / kanka?
After tonsilectomy: Personally, I think the chloraseptic would be irritating and not helpful and the kanka might numb the area but not be of much help either. Your surgeon is more familiar with this procedure, you and what pain medication you are already taking. I think he\she would be able to suggest better solutions for you. Call the office. ...Read more
Canker sores (aphthous ulcers) run their course in 7-10 days. Applying a mouthwash can't hurt, but may not be of much help.
Until it is no longer painful, Stay away from spicy foods and try not to irritate it.

My 5 year old daughter has had a severely bad cough for about 2 weeks now & without having any fever. I have done everything that I know to do....Cough medicine, chloraseptic, steam bath, vapor rub on her chest, I've got a fan blowing on her so she don't
Time for a visit: Persistence of a severe cough for this length of time is worth a visit. There are forms of reactive airway disease that can respond to treatment if they are picked up on exam. This may represent a mild form of asthma or a response to a mild sinus infection. Other things may also be contributing to the process. ...Read more

Chloraseptic spray is an oral anesthetic and analgesic combination. It works by numbing the painful or irritated areas I would not use it
if you are allergic to any ingredient in chloraseptic spray or you have a history of allergic reaction to local anesthetics (eg, benzocaine). If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or breast-feeding I would consult your doctor. ...Read more
Lotsa Options: Yeah, chloroseptic is OK. Tastes kinds weird and doesn't last all that long. Also avoid potential irritants like salt, citrus, hot peppers, and the like. And try cold, like frozen yogurt or ice cream/ice milk/ice chips and soft foods, nothing with sharp edges (like Cap'n Crunch or sea urchins). If it starts feeling like you're swallowing razor blades, and you spike a fever go see a doctor ...Read more
I'm 4 weeks pregnant and I have bad cough and sinusitis. Been taking tylenol (acetaminophen) severe cough and sinusitis and chloroseptic lozenges is it safe?
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
