Persistent sore throat

A sore throat that persists for several weeks can be a sign of a medical condition that needs attention

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against the symptoms of cold and flu. Supplements like Echinaforce help increase the body’s resistance to infection by strengthening the immune system, allowing the body to fight the misery of colds and flu.

      Hello. I am sorry to hear of your problem. It will be good to see what the specialist says but these white patches could indeed be a fungal infection called candida. If the diagnosis is confirmed, it is likely that anti-fungals will be used. If what your doctor suggests does not suit you, there will be more natural anti-fungal preparations such as concentrated fermented whey that you can use.
