  1. Hi and welcome to Medimetry.Throat infection can be due to viral or bacterial infections.What antibiotic was given to you?How many days did you take it?Sometimes a prolonged course of antibiotics may be necessary depending on the severity of the infection.A change in antibiotic may be desirable if throat swab was taken to find the type of bacteria causing it.If symptoms are persistent get examined by an ENT specialist.Do warm saline gargles two times a day.Take one teaspoon of ginger honey daily.Avoid cold foods.Take warm liquids like soups,tulsi tea etc.Take care and keep us posted!
