Throat Issues After Traveling?

June 3rd, 2016 | 1 min. read

By Houston ENT & Allergy

When you come home after a long business trip or vacation, you often need a few days to recover and get organized before heading back to work or school. If you come back with a scratchy or sore throat, it can be that much harder to hit the ground running. At Houston ENT & Allergy in Town & Country, we can treat any throat conditions that are hindering your return to a normal routine.

Properly Diagnosing Your Condition

Our first step will be to examine your neck and throat both internally and externally, so we can properly diagnose your condition. Depending on where you traveled, either domestically or internationally, you could've been exposed to an infection that caused enlarged adenoids or laryngitis. Adenoiditis can be caused by airborne germs, viruses, and bacteria, and if you're having difficulty breathing, swallowing, or sleeping, it's imperative to see an ENT specialist as soon as possible. Our doctors and staff will make sure your needs are addressed and that you receive the proper care.

Getting back into a normal routine is important following a long trip, and if your routine has been interrupted by a serious throat condition, please make an appointment with our Town & Country ENT clinic as soon as possible. We've served the greater Houston area for more than 100 years, and know what it takes to provide exceptional care for every patient who comes to us for help. You are our first priority, and we look forward to helping you heal!
