Hi...I am asking this for my mom. In April, she developed a itchy skin rash and sore throat. She went to her dermatologist, was given tests and was diagnosed with an allergic reaction to two different prescription medications. She was also on prednisone at the time and was diagnosed with thrush by her ENT specialist. The itchiness has gone away since then, but she still has a severe sore throat everyday. She has pretty much been on a liquid diet since it hurts so much to swallow food. After having an upper GI recently, she was told that she has gastroesophageal reflux disease. She just wants a clear answer as to why she is having this severe sore throat and if it will ever go away. Should she see yet another doctor? Would an allergist be able to help her? Thanks for any help!
