In general, sore throat is a common symptom of eyedrops, which can occur in many people. So what about eyedrops with a bitter throat? Let's take a look at it in detail!
Why does eye drop hurt your throat
In normal people, there is a small hole at the top and bottom of the eye near the nose, which leads directly to the nasal cavity. It is called nasolacrimal duct. When eyedrops are dripped, some of the eyedrops will flow into the nasal cavity through the nasolacrimal tube, and then into the oral throat. In addition, the ingredients of the eyedrops are bitter, so many people will feel the throat bitter when they drop the eyedrops.
What should I do if I have a sore throat
Step 1: expectoration
If you have already felt the pain in your throat, you can spit out the eyedrops in your throat by means of expectoration, which can reduce the persistent pain in your throat.
Step 2: gargle
After spitting out the phlegm with bitter eyedrops, you may still have bitter feeling in your mouth. At this time, you can take a glass of water to rinse your mouth to reduce the bitter feeling in your mouth. After gargling, you may as well drink a few more mouthfuls of water to wash the residual eyedrops in the throat into the esophagus.
Step 3: eat something
For people with sensitive taste, the above two steps may not completely eliminate the bitterness in their mouth. At this time, they can eat some sweet or salty food to completely cover up the bitterness.
