What are the side effects of chloraseptic oral anesthetic sore throat spray?

What are the side effects of chloraseptic oral anesthetic sore throat spray?

Allergic reactions: 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.

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

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.

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.

Are you ok?: Your question appears to be dictated by a confused person. If you are feeling very muddy, get seen today. If you have a cough not responsive to cough drops, you need to find out why you have the cough. How long you've had it, what it's like, other medical problems, etc.

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.

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

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

When spraying Flonase in nostrils is it normal for it to feel like a little went in throat or am I spraying too high up? Should I spray lower? Thanks!

When spraying Flonase in nostrils is it normal for it to feel like a little went in throat or am I spraying too high up? Should I spray lower? Thanks!

Proper Technique: First gently blow your nose to clear it of mucus before using the medicine. Tilt your head forward slightly. Put the spray tip into nostril and aim slightly out (away from septum). Use the finger of your other hand to close off your other nostril. Spraying toward the septum or straight up can cause the medication to be swallowed. Online technique videos on Flonase website helpful.
