I’m calling on COTH wisdom.
A family member (age 56) has Covid. His most troubling symptom is a sore throat that he says is off the charts–incredibly painful and burning–making it agony to drink or eat (he is managing to get small amounts of ice cream down).
He’s taking liquid ibuprofen but it’s not doing much.
Questions: Has anyone else had this kind of horrible sore throat with Covid? Is there any medication (prescription or otherwise) that will be more effective than ibuprofen?
Thank you for any info anyone can share.
