Is Spicy Food Good For A Sore Throat
By whom?: Spicy food will sting the throat more during inflammation, but it will not alter the course of infection.
Dear doctor I have been having painful throat for a week now. So far I thought it is normal sore throat and so was doing some home remedies but yesterday it aggravated especially after eating spicy food (which I normally eat). In addition to painful swal
Get seen: The most common cause for new sore throat is a viral infection, but worsening after a week may be concerning. You should have the throat examined as you may need an appropriate medication. Casein in food will exacerbate pain from inflammation from any cause and fits with your overall story.
I am experiencing heartburn (gerd), burping and sore throat. For the past week I am feeling pain in throat. Food does not bother me. The scale of the pain is like 2 (1-10). I am also experiencing heartburn (since long) get worse eating spicy food.
I have one white bump on the top of my right tonsil. No sore throat. Right ear is irritated and burns when I eat spicy food such as salsa.
Take it easy: Best plan is to take it easy with foods until your throat recovers. You can have soft foods and/or liquids like soup -- making sure the temperature is tolerable. Unless you have severely damaged your throat, its mucosal lining should heal fairly quickly (within days). In the meantime, advil or aleve (naproxen) may help. Salt water gargles (don't swallow!); warm herbal teas. Stay hydrated.
Toddler afraid to eat hard food only eating soft foods what could be going on no sore throat or anything?
Teething or other: Food refusal is common in toddlers. Teething, new textures, new smells can influence food choice. Excessive fluid intake will curb appetite. Uncommonly, issues like oral-motor development needed for chewing or reflux can cause food refusal. See your doctor if child loses or stops going weight.
Doubtful: Although some health food sites suggest that fatty foods may inhibit your immune system, even if this were remotely accurate it should not hurt your sore throat.
No: Acid reflux is physiologic. In other words, it's normal. However, it becomes pathologic when it bothers you. Fermented food doesn't cause acid reflux any more than non-fermented food. However, "bad" acid reflux allows acid to get high enough back up esophagus to cause sore throat. Antacids (calcium carbonate), H2 blockers & proton pump inhibitors help. Stay upright after small meals.See 1 more doctor answer

Cough. How do I treat it? Last week I ate lots of fried/baked food. No sore throat or other symptoms. Have mucus. White color.
I have had laryngitis and very sore throat for over 3 weeks. Now I am starting to get "choked" on food and drinks. Are these related/what can I do?
Family practice: You may have acid reflux. You may have some scaring of your esophagus from it. See your dr for treatment and possibly see a GI specialist to take a look down your throat.
Nerve endings: The taste bids on the tongue have receptors and nerve endings. The spicy foods contain a chemical called capsaicin and this will stimulate the nerve endings and sends a pain signal to the brain. These sensory nerve endings are located all over your mouth and body. Hope this answers your question.See 1 more doctor answer
