I am experiencing sore throat. For the past 4wks very itchy, thick brownish mucus at times?

That's too long. . Four weeks is too long to go with a sore throat without being evaluated locally by physician. The symptoms that you described could represent an infection, and a viral infection generally would not last as long. You might need treatment, including an antibiotic. Please visit a physician locally for an examination.

Please . Please schedule a a visit with your primary care provider. You are likely dealing with a throat infection (pharyngitis) which could be bacterial or viral. There are tests that can be done in order to rule out a bacterial cause(strep) in which case you will need antibiotics. Also you may have allergies with resultant post nasal drip that is causing your symptoms, and/or an ear infection. In the meantime take Ibuprofen for pain, warm salt gargles, and a daily anti-histamine. I hope you find answers and relief soon. Read more...

Virus? Allergy? Most illnesses like this are due to viruses, not bacteria, antibiotics don't help. Your doctor probably just gave them in hope they would help. If still no better, probably you have a prolonged viral infection or allergy. Contact your doctor to confirm and discuss other treatments. In the meantime, don't worry. Probably this isn't serious and will clear up on its own. Read more...
