In warm weather, many people want cold ice cream, ice beer or carbonated drinks - all this quenches thirst and brings pleasure, but it happens to be responsible for the pleasure with their own health. After drinking cold drinks, your immunity weakens a little, and the infection begins to "master" in your throat. This is how sore throat begins.
Most often, children suffer from it, but adults also need to be more attentive to their health. First of all, you need to remember about the signs of a sore throat. And not always with this disease there is a high temperature. Often it goes away literally the next day, and the sore throat continues. If you look at the patient's throat, you can see that the tonsils seem to "burn", the lymph nodes are enlarged. And if the sore throat is not treated, complications may arise.
When treating this disease, it is better to gargle with decoctions of herbs: chamomile, calendula, sage. Herbs help relieve pain and fight infections. In order to increase the effect, you need to gargle about every 1.5-2 hours. In addition, these same infusions can be taken orally. Oil solutions of fir or eucalyptus can be used for inhalation.
A sick person needs a lot of fluid. It not only relieves the body of dehydration, but also quickly relieves intoxication. It is better to drink non-acidic juices in order not to irritate the inflamed mucous membrane. An excellent remedy is jelly made from fruits or berries. This drink is quite viscous, it perfectly envelops a sore throat and reduces pain. Food must be soft, preferably without hot spices and herbs.
It must be remembered that angina is a disease that is easily transmitted, which means that if you have the opportunity, it is better to exclude the patient's contacts with healthy people, especially with young children. After all, they are difficult to tolerate infectious diseases, and complications arise in them much more often. If it is not possible to isolate children, then the patient, in order not to infect others, should always wear a mask and be under the constant supervision of a doctor. Angina can become a chronic disease, so take care of your health and do not catch a cold.
