The most commonly used viral pharyngitis treatments are painkillers and anti-inflammatories. Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirin all make good choices and will lower pain. If your condition persists, then you’ll be prescribed an antibiotic and painkillers. Throat lozenges are sometimes also given, as well as soothing rubs, and cough medicine.
