I know acidity and fatty foods are bad for throat. What can I eat/drink that's good for my throat/esophagus?

Reflux?: If your throat pain is due to acid reflux then you want to avoid foods that flare up the reflux such as tomatoes, citrus, peppermint, chocolate, etc...If you smoke, stop. If you are overweight, begin the weight loss process. If the pain is due to tonsillitis then just eat some soft foods such as soup, icecream, pudding etc...until the infection has cleared up.

Bad: The esophagus is not designed to handle the acidic contents of the stomach--ask someone with GERD. You are putting yourself at risk for other conditions, including Barret's esophagitis and esophageal cancer. I suggest watching your limit.

Is it good or bad to eat ice cream with a very sore throat?

Is it good or bad to eat ice cream with a very sore throat?

Use in moderation: There is no medical reason I can think of not to consume cold items when you have a sore throat. I would predict ice cream will dull the pain by more than one method (mental & actual).

Are there any good ways to prevent a sever sore throat from turning into a bad cold?

Are there any good ways to prevent a sever sore throat from turning into a bad cold?

Pharyngitis: Many times, you cannot prevent a sore throat from turning into a "bad cold". Most times, acute pharyngitis (infection of the back of the throat) are caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms of these infections include, but are not limited to: 1) sore throat, 2) runny nose, 3) cough, 4) sinus pressure, 5) otalgia (ear pain), 6) fever, 7) fatigue. Best to give it time and push the fluids!

I had a bad throat n cough. The throat is good, the cough is clearing, but now my ear is plugged. Tried yawning, nothing works, what can I do to hear?

Decongestant: It sounds like you are suffering from a cold which is slowly getting better but now your eustacian tubes are blocked. You might get some releif from using an oral decongestant. If not getting better it may be time to see your doctor.

Fatty liver bad gallbladder: liver enzymes good protein 8.4 billibruin 20. What could it be? Possibilty of strep throat

Question vague: You need to be seen and evaluated by a doctor asap. A bilirubin of 20mg/dl suggests either obstruction to biliary flow, severe damage to the liver itself (as in hepatitis), breakdown of red blood cells or other conditions. It is unlikely that strep throat has anything to do with this. Go and see a doctor as quickly as you can. Good luck.

Is cipro (ciprofloxacin) good for bad sore throat this sore throat started 2 days ago and now I have a bad cough and it burns when I cough?

Is cipro (ciprofloxacin) good for bad sore throat this sore throat started 2 days ago and now I have a bad cough and it burns when I cough?

Not sure: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) types of antibiotics are usually for infections of the lower respiratory tract, less for bacterial pharyngitis. If it doesn't give improvement within 48 hours of starting, it may not be effective for your infection.

Did a breathing test today all tests were 80s to 100s % Range overall good. Small airway was 72 is that bad? Is it normal to get your heart rate up and pulse and not feel pounding heart beat in chest? Scared for a year Lump feeling throat weak pulse.

Normal: Your spirometry results appear ok. Many people with rapid heart rates do not feel palpitations or forceful beat. Lump sensation in the throat is quite characteristic of anxiety. If your blood pressure, heart rhythm and heart rate are all normal, I doubt that you have a truly weak pulse. You should consider stress management therapy which I feel will relieve your symptoms. Discuss this with your MD

Please describe a good home remedy for bad acne on the back, shoulders, chest, face, and neck?

A better idea: Your question implies rather severe acne. I'm not aware of home remedies that are particularly effective on acne this bad. My suggestion is to have a doctor (primary care or dermatology) evaluate and treat. Acne can be emotionally and physically scarring!

Is cerv traction good for a neck like mine with so many issues. Symptoms are getting pretty bad. Neck pain arm pain and tingling pt 24 visit idnt hlp?

It MAY be an option: There is no "one size fits all" in terms of answers. Many people can carry on with this sort of neck first off--- I don't really know what your cervical spine looks like. Can you upload a. pdf of the test reports? Would even be sweeter if you can send us the DIGITAL FILE of the MRI/MRA.
