Throat, allergy and asthma
Can KRY prescribe for sore throat, cough or tonsillitis?
Our doctors can not prescibe antibiotics or other medicines that require samples to diagnose, except in the Stockholm area.
Tonsillitis, is a disease where it is usually necessary to take a sample from the throat to prescribe antibiotics. We currently have the opportunity to offer sampling in the Stockholm area. We are working to offer this service throughout Sweden as soon as possible.
KRY can offer laboratory tests in the following counties: Stockholm, Uppsala, Södermanland, Örebro and Västra Götaland.
The guidelines that we follow about tonsillitis are developed by the Swedish Medicines Agency, in collaboration with the RAF (Reference Group for Antibiotics) and STRAMA (Strategy Group for Rational Antibiotics Use and Reduced Antibiotics Resistance).
Can KRY help with allergies?
In a video meeting with one of our doctors we can help you with most forms of allergy. We can find the right treatment and prescribe appropriate medication when needed.
In the KRY app under the Home tab, you will find our "Order Prescription Renewal" service. There you can ask for a prescription renewal without making a video call. The fee for prescription renewal is the same as for a doctor's visit, i.e. 250 SEK for adults. For children and adolescents under the age of 20 and for those over 85 years old, it is free of charge. High cost protection card is applicable.

The condition for renewing a prescription is that the current medicine is included on the list of your prescriptions retrieved for the past 15 months. It’s important to be aware of that your rights for prescription renewal always is determined on individual basis, after assessment by the attending doctor. The doctor also assesses the amount of medicin that can be prescribed and if multiple withdrawal of the medicin is possible.
Medicines for acute treatment, such as antibiotics, require a video meeting with one of our doctors at KRY and cannot be renewed by the "Prescription Renewal" feature in our app. Many medicines also require regular follow-up, hence we can only renew prescriptions for a shorter period of consumption. Please note that our doctors at KRY cannot prescribe medication that is classified as narcotic.
