Is it really effective to listen to others say that eating popsicles can relieve sore throat?Can you cure the disease?
After many people get the new crown, they have different degrees of sore throat, some are slightly painful, and some are serious.Some people think that eating a bit of popsicles can relieve pain. As a doctor in the Department of ENT, it is still not recommended to eat popsicles.
Everyone must know that this is the pain caused by the new coronary virus infection. Its main mechanism is the blood vessel congestion caused by the virus, increased the secretions, and after eating the popsicles, it will increase the amount of secretions.The throat recovery.After all, popsicles are cold. We still recommend avoiding cold and irritating things, including popsicles, tobacco and alcohol, etc. These are not good for the recovery of local mucosa.

There are still differences between these two kinds of sore throat.
The sore throat caused by the new coronary virus, the manifestation of mucosal edema is not powerful, but the patient’s pain stimulus is very heavy, indicating that the stimulation of the nerve peripheral of the throat is increasing;It is manifested as pharyngitis, laryngitis or tonsil inflammation.
