I have gotten a few of those throat infections.
Speaking for my own observations of my throat while suffering from aforementioned infections, I have observed the lymph nodes in my neck and they hurt incredibly bad.
The throat produces this pus that sometimes gets coughed out. Truly vile ish that is!
The worst thing I've had happen in my throat is my uvula became huge and would like flop around.
To avoid these infections it is advisable to gargle after a bowl or an hour or just some time that's reasonably soon after smoking, but not instantly. Salt water is the best, water is a charming substitute, mouth wash can cause increased irritation and is just a bit to harsh. Mouth wash is designed to destroy germs and bacteria, but with regular use it destroys your mouth.
Another thing that I have no scientific backing of but it has worked splendidly on a personal level. I always feared it was wasting meth
, however it burns away some complex chemical stuff aledgedly used to keep ice from melting without a legit heat source. I have no idea on any of the chemical processes and don't want to, but when I tried it, my throat got so much better!
Sorry it took so long to get to the following: the method is to melt down the crystals in the bowl and let the shards crack
back before taking a hit.
Hopefully that helps. What I would do in the past is go in to a natro pathic doctor and get diagnosed with strep and the penicillin fixed my throat within 19 hours. So if other methods don't help, it's another option.
