You need to do warm salt water gargles daily-preferably morning and night. Also avoid cold and sour food items. If tonsils are enlarged and causing problem in swallowing or breathing or causing recurrent sore throat (6-7 episodes per year), surgery (tonsillectomy) will be a better option instead of repeated medical treatment with antibiotics etc.

What are the symptoms of TB? I'm having a cough from 2 weeks and yesterday while spitting blood came up in my cough so I'm worried if this is just because of common cold or I have been caught by TB or lung cancer maybe.

Hi. I understand your concerns. You will need to undergo a detailed examination and investigations like chest x ray to look for infection. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Cough can be due to reasons other than tb. You should avoid all irritants food drink smoke and fragrances. You should get your throat and chest checked thoroughly. Get blood report CBC and Xray of chest done. That will help to know reason for persistent cough and it's treatment.

This is very common to have dry cough after fever esp after taking a strong anti pyretic like dolo. This may take some time. If it's unbearable and affecting your daily routine you can take medicine after consulting a doctor. It will decrease the severity. Along with medication keep doing gargles with saline water. Avoid taking fried and highly spicy food. Drink Luke warm water.
