Chloroseptic: Chloroseptic spray is the most effective pain medicine for sore throat over-the-counter, ibuprofen (motrin/advil), naproxen (aleve), or tylenol (acetaminophen). Herbal tea with lemon & honey, warm salt gargles. If viral, chicken soup actually has a viricidal effect.

Feeling dryness in throat since one week. May I know the reason for it? Would you suggest me any medicine for it?
Physical exam: Throat dryness is a common symptom that can be caused by many different things. The only way to tell you why you are having this is to look at your throat. So best thing is to see your pcp. No medicine can be suggested for this until the cause is known. However, my guess is that it will resolve on its own in a few days and if it doesn't, then you definitely need to see a doc. Best wishes, ariel.
PCN & take your meds: If you were tested and are sure it is streptococcus causing your throat problems, the best medicine is still penicillin or one very similar, such as amoxicillin. As important, though, is taking your medicine on time. Strep dies when the medicine in your system is above a certain level, so if you don't take your meds on time the strep can start to party again and multiply. Make sure you finish it!
GERD: Yes many. First don't eat after 7 pm, secondly chew you food well and minimize water or fluids with you food. You may wish to raise the head of your bed about 5 inches. Lastly see your doctor and get an h2 blocker. Since much of your stomach acid occurs at night. Be careful what you eat.
Sore throat pain: If the sore throat is pretty mild, tylenol/acetaminophen is a good choice for the treatment of the pain. Your immune system has to do the "healing, " meaning to conquer the infection. If the pain is severe and/or there is fever, a strep throat is possible and a visit to the doctor is in order. Untreated strep infections can lead to serious disease-rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease.See 1 more doctor answer

The best policy is to be examined by an ear nose and throat doctor to determine whether there is reason to further treat for allergies or consider other causes to tailor a more effective treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

I recently had strep throat and I'm supposed to take 3 pills a day but I just take 1 a day now. Could I get strep throat by not taking the medicine?
Failed treatment: The treatment plan for a given condition is based on the type of antibiotic and how it is best used to kill the germ. If you are only using 1/3 of the treatment daily, you risk just failing to kill off the germ, and allowing it to persist after treatment. It would be as if you never treated it.
