Homeopathic treatment for sore throat

IGNATIA: I find homoeopathic medicine Ignatia is also a very well indicated remedy in cases of chronic sore throat. This may be associated with chronic tonsillitis. Ignatia may be prescribed when swallowing of liquids is more painful and the pain subsides on swallowing solids. The pain may be stinging and burning in nature. There may be a constant lump-like sensation in the throat with an urge to clear the throat.

PSORINUM: The homoeopathic medicine Psorinum may be indicated in sore throats which tend to be recurrent. There may be a constant pain in the throat which may radiate to the ears during an attempt to swallow. There may a constant desire to stay warm because of the extreme chilliness, so much so that there is a desire to be dressed warmly even during summers. Psorinum may be given to improve the immunity in children who suffer from recurrent upper respiratory infections. There may be a foul-smelling discharge from the throat. All the symptoms are aggravated by a cold in general and by drinking coffee, and usually get better with warmth.

Mononucleosis : “Mono” is a viral infection of the whole system and is most common in ten-to-thirty-five year olds. Symptoms often include a very painful sore throat, red, swollen tonsils (sometimes spotted with white material), exhaustion, aches, and fever. The lymph nodes, especially in the neck, are always swollen. Mono is like the flu, but mono lasts longer than the flu, and the sore throat is worse. Mono may also be accompanied by cough, hepatitis (liver inflammation), swelling of the spleen, or symptoms affecting the nervous system. A blood test is required to confirm mono. Mono has no orthodox medical treatment, and it usually resolves itself in two to four weeks, though it may last up to three months. Homeopathic treatment may reduce the length of the illness.

Epiglottitis : The epiglottis is the flap of tissue that covers the entrance to the larynx; when one swallows, it prevents food from getting into the tube leading to the lungs. Rarely, the epiglottis becomes infected by bacteria, resulting in a serious medical emergency, since swelling of the epiglottis may totally block the windpipe. The symptomsósevere sore throat, sense of constriction, and marked feveróbegin suddenly. As the swelling worsens, swallowing becomes so difficult that drooling occurs. Struggling to breathe, the patient often sits leaning forward and open-mouthed. Epiglottitis occurs most often in children under six but older children and adults can also get it. It requires immediately emergency treatment in a hospital.
