Help!!! A terrible throat! painful to swallow and talk!! Advise ways of treatment in the house. conditions. Thank you in advance!



Than to treat a throat, if laziness to go to a drugstore?

There are a lot of ways and each of them is good in its own way. Surprisingly the opponents of traditional medicine, almost all of them help, it remains only to choose which one you prefer. Therefore, so that you do not get confused in the Internet, I offer you a list of the best ways to treat a sore throat at home.
From own experience:

Method 1. "With me" Pour milk into the glass, add a teaspoon of honey and a small slice of butter. The glass is placed in a microwave, heated to heat the milk and the butter to melt. Stir until the honey dissolves, and then drink necessarily through the tube with small sips

Method 2. "Pop" An abundant drink of hot tea with honey and lemon. Honey can be replaced with raspberry jam.

Method 3 "Basque rests" As soon as you feel that you start to ache a bit - sing, better note Sol. Loudly sing, do not be shy. And do not be surprised, this is a very effective way, singing enhances the circulation of the pharynx and larynx, and hence the immune cells resorts more to the place of recovery.

Method 4. "The warmest" This procedure is best done at night. We need a bag for breakfast ), a long woolen scarf, cotton wool and vodka. We make a compress. We put a sachet on the scarf, top the cotton wool and water the vat with vodka. Then we apply this design to the front surface of the neck and reel, and winding along with the ears, that is, one turn must be made from the chin to the nape. Personally, I still stuff a cotton wool in my ears, slightly moistened with a tincture of propolis, so my ears usually begin to ache with my throat. In the morning you wake up usually healthy and happy =))).

Method 5. "Well, of course rinses! "Rinse your throat, almost anything. Saline solutions, soda, onion tea, all sorts of folk tinctures such as calendula, even garlic heard. In general, than you want, within reason

Method 6. "Babushkin" This method is most likely used after the hypothermia occurred and you are afraid of getting sick. My grandmother and I used to do this with my brother, after every winter walk. Take the knitted (better grandmother and better loved one color) woolen socks, there is filled with ground mustard (you can tear the packet with a mustard plaster) and pour it right into sock. The sock is also put on the bed for the night.

Method 7. "Mr. Potato" Boil the potatoes in a peel, pre-wash well. Then we take a big towel and how in a tent in it we breathe a mouth with potato steams. Children like much more than gargling.
The Earth rumors are full of (she did not try):

1. Rinse your throat with a warm beer.

2. Leaf the cabbage to the throat and wrap it in a scarf, overnight.

3. Put under the tongue of honey, a teaspoon, and do not swallow, but let it resolve.

4. Hot water + salt + 2-4 drops of iodine, and rinse.

5. Rinse several times with a throat with vodka or cognac, preferably swallowed. And, if there is a lemon at home - eat them.

6. Make green tea with honey + half a lemon + garlic. Lemon practically kills the smell of garlic.

7. Feet in the pelvis with water temperature of 38 degrees, for 10-15 minutes. Then grind the contents of the pelvis of the lower leg, feet. Dry your feet with a towel.

8. If you are too lazy to go to the pharmacy, then in principle you can not go out for a few days. And if so, then make yourself comfortable, turn on comedies and get pleasure. And you will not notice how you will recover.

Severely sore throat, painful swallowing and talking: proper treatment

Each person throughout his life encountered discomfort in the throat. Some experience such problems only occasionally, others quite regularly. And they often begin in different ways. There may be perspiration, hoarseness, general malaise. And in some cases the mucous membrane immediately becomes inflamed. Despite the different manifestations of the symptomatology, all the pathologies are united by a common problem: the throat is sore, it is painful to swallow and talk. Even a drop of water can provoke serious pain and become a real test for the patient. How to get rid of painful discomfort?

it hurts my throat painfully to swallow and talk

The main causes of discomfort

Patients who have a sore throat, painful swallowing and talking, it is necessary to take extremely careful attention to such anxious signs. Since even minor, at first glance, symptoms can lead to the development of unpleasant diseases in the future.

Sore throat sometimes signals not only a cold. Sometimes it indicates the development in the body of a bacterial infection or an allergic reaction. Of course, each pathology needs individual adequate treatment. To pick up it is possible, only having found out, why the throat strongly hurts.

The main causes of discomfort are:

  1. Viruses. The patient may have fever. Often there is a runny nose. This symptomatology is sometimes accompanied by inflammation of the mucosa. The mouth feels dry. The patient experiences acute burning sensation near the larynx. Such sensations are greatly enhanced during swallowing. Periodically they are capable of giving into the head. Diseases can be triggered by respiratory viruses. But sometimes pathologies occur against a background of more serious causes. To cause sore throat viruses of measles, chicken pox, influenza, infectious mononucleosis. It is very important not to allow the aggravation of the disease and the development of its complications.
  2. Allergy. Pathology can provoke inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose and mouth. As a result of skin irritation, the patient experiences pain during swallowing. This is a rather dangerous pathology. Because an allergic attack can cause serious negative consequences. In this case, specialists are required.
  3. Angina. Tonsillitis is a disease that always causes severe pain in the throat. Especially increases discomfort during swallowing. To recognize pathology it is possible and for a number of other symptoms that accompany angina, it is inflammation of the tonsils, swelling in the throat. In addition, often the patient feels a lump in the throat, which makes it difficult to drink water, swallow food.
  4. Foreign body.Quite by chance, a person can swallow a foreign object, and sometimes a piece of food that provokes throat irritation. In this case, the pain intensifies with every minute. The foreign body scratches the shell of the throat, causing the patient extremely unpleasant sensations.
  5. Cold. This pathology is often accompanied by a cough and fever, a runny nose. Sometimes a common cold causes unbearable pain while swallowing. In this case, you need to use special drugs that can reduce discomfort.very bad sore throat

This is not the only reason why the throat is very sore. Sometimes discomfort can be provoked:

  • bacterial diseases - influenza, pharyngitis;
  • dry air;
  • contamination or irritants;
  • muscular tension (after the speech);
  • gastroesophageal reflux;
  • a tumor;
  • HIV infections.

When self-treatment is unacceptable?

Insidious bacteria and viruses, if not on time to take action against them, are able to affect any human system. Infection that spreads into the lungs can provoke pneumonia, and if it reaches the brain it can cause meningitis. When lowering it into the kidneys, the patient may develop pyelonephritis.

But, unfortunately, most people postpone the visit to the doctor. If the throat is badly sore, it is painful to swallow and talk, patients often make attempts at self-treatment. However, there are certain signs accompanying discomfort during swallowing, which indicates the need for medical intervention.

As soon as possible, consult a doctor if the sore throat is accompanied by the following symptoms:

  • weight loss;
  • severe dizziness;
  • occurrence on a skin of a rash of red color;
  • increased lymph nodes;
  • increased heart rate;
  • labored breathing;
  • joint pain;
  • the appearance of blood veins in saliva and sputum;
  • education on tonsils whitish plaque;
  • temperature exceeding 3 degrees;
  • ear pain;
  • swelling in the throat and on the neck;
  • painful discomfort, dividing more than 1 week.

Pregnant women who have a sore throat, painful swallowing and talking, must definitely see a doctor. This recommendation is also relevant for those people who once were treated for rheumatism.

Where should we start?

People who have a sore throat when swallowing can significantly reduce discomfort if they listen to the recommendations of doctors:

  1. Try to minimize motor activity and mental stress. It is advisable for a while to completely disconnect from home, work problems. In this case, the body will direct all its resources to fight the disease. Consequently, recovery will come quickly enough. But in a furious modern pace, few people follow this advice. If the sore throat arose as a result of a cold, many prefer unpleasant symptoms to relieve symptomatic means. The danger of this approach to treatment is that often symptomatic preparations for cold contain phenylephrine - a substance that increases blood pressure and causes the heart to work for wear. In order to avoid complications of colds, you need to choose medicines without components of this kind. For example, "Antigrippin" (better from "Natur-product") is a preparation for cold without phenylephrine, which eliminates unpleasant symptoms of ARVI, without provoking an increase in pressure and without harming the cardiac muscle.
  2. Smoking with severe discomfort in the throat is not the best solution. Say goodbye to your bad habit at least for the period of treatment.
  3. Be sure to rinse your throat. For these purposes, you can buy in the pharmacy special compounds or use folk remedies. This procedure should be repeated more often. Rinse will calm the mucous membrane, in addition, eliminate the microbes. Severe pain will gradually subside.
  4. With discomfort in the throat, it is recommended to talk less. It is best to remain silent during an illness. This will give the necessary rest to the vocal cords.
  5. Very warm neutral drinks are very useful. You can eat mors, water, juice, tea, mineral water (still), herbal decoctions. These drinks will fill the lack of fluid in the body and soften the dry throat. The recommended norm is 8-10 glasses.
  6. In case of severe pain, the doctor will prescribe pain medication for use.
  7. Your throat needs warmth. Therefore, tie the neck with a warm scarf. Such manipulation will warm your throat and significantly reduce pain.
  8. Moisten the air. The procedure can be performed by any available methods. It is useful to use a humidifier. If it does not exist, you can put a container of water in the room or hang wet sheets and towels. Remember, dry air for the throat is extremely damaging.

If you have a sore throat and swallow painfully: what is it to cure

Often a person happens so that the throat hurts, painfully swallow - than to treat such a misfortune? After all, sore throat brings not only discomfort when swallowing, but, without timely treatment, can exacerbate, developing into complex chronic diseases, which then persecute the person all his a life.

The problem of sore throat when swallowing

Typically, the treatment is completely dependent on the underlying cause, which causes sore throat. There are several reasons for these, therefore it is very important to be able to identify them correctly, so that instead of treatment, one does not cause irreparable harm to one's health.

Causes of sore throat

The pain in the throat can manifest itself both by itself, and by swallowing or deep inspiration. In any case, it is necessary to sort out the reason for the beginning, and then start taking the treatment.Let's consider some of the most common causes of sore throat.

Nausea is a symptom of a foreign body in the throat
  1. Very often the cause is a foreign body. It does not matter whether it's big or small. As a rule, the foreign body causes swelling, spasm of the muscles of the larynx, and often even vomiting or nausea. Cases of death are frequent, when a foreign object completely blocks the breath. Therefore, if the foreign body is the cause of pain during swallowing, you should immediately seek help from a doctor.
  2. In people who have a high degree of sensitivity, even excessively dry air can cause sore throats. This applies to both indoor air and air in the street. Exacerbation occurs during the heating season, in the hot summer period, and even during a long stay in a smoky or dusty room. In the throat cavity microtraumas are formed, which are the causes of pain during swallowing.
  3. If a person does not have a temperature, but it is painful to swallow, the cause may be an allergic reaction. Along with this, the main symptom during allergy is also sneezing, perspiration in the throat, tearing, runny nose, skin rashes. In this case, too, you need to see a doctor or start taking special anti-allergic drugs. But first of all you need to eliminate the source of allergy.
  4. But the most common cause of sore throats during swallowing are viral infections. The period of exacerbation is cold and unstable weather. Usually, along with pain in the throat during swallowing, coughing, runny nose, fever. Often the temperature rises only after a few days, while the pain in the throat can make itself felt immediately.
Allergy is the cause of sore throatOf course, the sore throat is not such a serious illness, and you can try to treat it yourself at home.

But it is still important to know some of the main symptoms, which must certainly alert and become an excuse to seek help from a highly qualified specialist.
