That Mild Throat Disorder: Plaque Effects.
In the presence of plaques in the throat, it is difficult to swallow water or food because their appearance tends to cause redness of the tonsils and also their swelling. Depending on the intensity of the phenomenon, swallowing can also cause pain, while symptoms such as headaches and febrile states can be recorded.
What causes the plaques?
Plaques in the throat generally appear due to diseases of the respiratory system, due to cooling states typical of the less hot seasons but also due to bacteria or viruses. Thus, a sore throat or one of the classic flu states is easily accompanied by plaques in the throat, which are often symptoms of inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis) or pharynx (pharyngitis).
Depending on the infectious nature that generated them, there are different remedies to combat plaques in the throat. If the cause is a virus, then remedies such as NeoBorocillin can help. If, on the other hand, it is a bacterial infection, especially if it has been verified that it is a Streptococcus, such as Group A Beta-hemolytic Streptococcus, then the most suitable therapy is that with antibiotics, which must be prescribed only after a medical or specialist examination or, in the case of plaque in the throat in children, a thorough pediatric examination.
Between natural remedies most used we mention:
- Ginger, which is considered a powerful natural antibacterial, pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. However, it is important that the ginger is fresh, chewable as ginger candies may not be effective.
- Infusions of sage or other medicinal herbs like thyme. It is possible to find them already dried in herbalist’s shops to prepare excellent herbal teas and infusions, to relieve the pain caused by plaques in the throat. The herbalist will indicate how to take and how to prepare the infusion according to your state of health.
- Suffumigi; considered among the oldest remedies but above all the most effective. It will be necessary to use a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil diluted in about a liter of very hot water.
- Gargle with lemon juice or at most apple cider vinegar. In case you decide to gargle with lemon juice, you will need to put a little salt, warm water and lemon juice in a glass. If you decide to use apple cider vinegar instead, simply replace it with lemon juice, using only a teaspoon. You can gargle up to two or three times a day.
How to relieve plaque pain.
To relieve symptoms of plaque in the throat, they can help specific pads for sore throat, as well as spray solutions suitable for severe sore throats. Relief can also be found with sage or thyme teas or with the classic teaspoon of honey. Spicy foods are not recommended.
Plaques in the throat and pediatric users.
We must consider that the greatest number of infectious agents present in our daily life, such as bacteria and viruses, are transmitted through the air we breathe. It is therefore easy that the first involvement of our organism starts from the throat, where the first defense reactions on our part take place. Sore throat, redness, pain, rise in body temperature, inflections of voice are the signs of the ongoing battle. These are the first important signs to notice in children, as well as trying to understand if they have difficulty or pain in swallowing. The presence of white / yellowish plaques in the throat of children is due to normal secretion of the mucous membrane of the throat and respiratory tract; they can be contrasted adequately but always after a careful pediatric visit to understand their nature.
