Thanks for your query.

Throat irritation could be either due to a viral infection or due to any irritants consumed along with food. In either of the cases there are chances of secondary infections with bacteria which can lead to high grade fever and make you sick.

Do gargle with antiseptic solutions like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily after food. This will kill bacteria existing and reduce the chances of bacterial infections. Also do take Benadryl if the throat irritation is more and unbearable.

Watch the progress of symptoms closely and if you the symptoms do not improve in the next 2-3 days, consult your physician for other treatment.

Hope I answered your query. Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Good luck for your exams...
