Angina can be classified, and depending on what kind of disease you are, you will be assigned a specific treatment from a doctor.

- drink hot tea,
- with a hollow throat,
- rubbed with warming ointments,
- put compresses.
If you have any rashes after the delivered compress or have heart problems, it is better to refrain from this procedure.
A warming compress is considered one of the most effective methods for dealing with sore throat, but it has one disadvantage: it raises body temperature and accordingly bacteria in the throat begin to multiply faster. Also, the action of the compress dilates the blood vessels, which can lead to a deeper penetration of the common cold. Therefore, with angina it is better to refrain from compresses and replace them by rinsing.
If someone is completely convinced of the need for a warm bandage, then it is better to consult a doctor on the subject, from which it is better to put it. More often wet compresses are selected, rather than dry ones. And they are allowed to put them only in the event that there is no increase in temperature. This happens only at the very beginning of the illness. In time the put warm warming bandage can make the further course of the disease not so acute and painful.
In cases when you are overtaken by purulent angina and the question is about the need for this procedure, the answer is unambiguous and uncompromising - no!

The gauze is wetted in alcohol solution and applied to the chest or neck, the film lies on top, it is wrapped around with a warm scarf or other warming cloth. It is recommended to apply a compress over the head - so the bandage will be better fixed. Change the bandage every 2-3 hours.
