First off, I haven't a clue as to the cause of the infection. Recurrent throat and lung infections often result from bacterial infections within the sinus cavities, however. No sooner does the infection get cleared up than the cycle starts again. Often these infections become antibiotic resistant. They are difficult to treat. Flushing the sinus cavity several times a day with saline helps. There is often a co-factor, and GERDS is one such co-factor. This is uausllay caused by lying down while eating or immediately after eating. There is often structural disorder, sometimes in the Lower Esophagal Sphincter, which leaks acid upwards which oozes into the trachea and makes the area ripe for an infection from thata sinus drip. Sinus infections often require extended antibiotic treatment, far beyond the normal seven day course. The bacteria reside within biofilms and are inaccessible to the antibiotic. Some physicians use high pressure water to flush the sinus cavities. You need an ENT evaluation. Zinc lozenges help in that they are bactricidal.
Hi i am having a sore throat nearly for the last three months i also get some pains below both armpits and have some mild bone pains. I 've already done two hiv tests which both came out negative, last week a doctor checked my throat, she said there is no infection but a small red area and that is propably due to gastric fluids come]ing up to esophagus. When i was 12 a was suffering from esophagitis with severe burns on stomach and i was taking only simeco. Is it possible due to anxiety, some gastric fluid to affect my hroat only while no feeling any stomach burns and what about the other two symptoms i am having? Many times sore throat affects my left ear. Thanks.
Lookup LPR which is silent reflux and it occurs most often during the day. It takes a PPI (Prilosec...not OTC...prescription stuff) twice a day for 4-6 months to help heal the damage caused to throat and vocal cords along with diet changes. And NO THROAT CLEARING...fight the urge to clear your throat. Again research LPR and go see an ENT doc.
