Swollen tunsils throat swollen. I've given her benadryl-d and chloraseptic lozenges

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

Can I use Chloraseptic spray the day after tonsillectomy?

Can I use Chloraseptic spray the day after tonsillectomy?

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

Can you use chloraseptic spray after having your tonsils removed to help with the pain?

Can you use chloraseptic spray after having your tonsils removed to help with the pain?

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

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 sore: 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.
Get some Orabase Ointment OTC from the pharmacy. It is an oral bandage that will stick to the ulcer. Apply it before meals so you can eat without discomfort. ...Read more

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

What's best for a sore throat at home? I read chloroseptic?

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

What is best pain medication?

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
