Sore Throat (Pharyngitis)
A swollen, painful throat, that renders swallowing difficult is called sore throat:
Aconite 30 : Sudden, severe pharyngitis with severe pain and high fever. The victim is extremely anxious, fears death and wants the doctor to be summoned immediately. There is an almost unquenchable thirst for large quantities of cold water.
Apis 30 : Acute pharyngitis, the throat looking fiery red, with burning, stinging pain. There is such sensitivity to touch that the victim can't tolerate clothes around the neck. Thirstlessness is an important feature.
Baryta carb 30 : Sore throat from consumption of cold drinks. There is a sensation of plug in the throat. The foodpipe contracts as soon as food enters, causing gagging and chocking. A tendency to catch colds easily is a feature of this medicine.
Belladonna 30 : Sudden, acute pharyngitis with severe burning pain in the throat and high fever. There is a constant desire to swallow (saliva). There is a rush of blood to the head, causing flushed face and throbbing carotids.
Mere sol 30 : Severe pharyngitis, the throat looking bluish red. The tongue is large and moist and shows an imprint of teeth. Profuse, offensive perspiration, trembling of the body and extreme thirst for large quantities of cold water indicate this medicine.
Phytolacca : Severe pharyngitis with dark-red, ashcoloured appearance of this throat. Burning pain in the throat as if from coal. The pain shoots into the ears on trying to swallow. The pain is worse on taking hot fluids but better when cold drinks are consumed.
