2. Sore Throat
You commonly experience a sore throat with a cold. That’s why most people mistake EBV reactivation with a cold. The sore throat can become unbearable to the point people have to seek medical treatment.
If your throat burns and it’s too painful to just swallow, consider taking some antibiotic pills to ease the pain. The symptom will hopefully disappear after a few days. Normally, antiviral supplements for Epstein Barr Virus need to be taken for up to 3 months.
To help your body fight off the virus, adjust your diet to include healthy choices rich in vitamins and minerals. If coffee is a daily drink for you, consider switching to lemon tea with honey until you feel better. The substances in tea could help ease the pain and help with recovery.
On the contrary, fried or fatty food can worsen the condition. Consult a health practitioner if you are unsure about your diet.
