Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

You might be having pharyngitis, could be due to post nasal drip.

Take steam inhalation 2-3 times a day.
do warm salt water gargling 2-3 times adays, it helps to clean your throat.
You can take NSAIDS to reduce inflammation and pain, like paracetamol 500mg.
As you are having greenish yellow discharge it shows infection, needs antibiotic treatment , tab. azithromycin 500mg once a day for 3 day

Consult your doctor for examination and management if this does not reduce your symptoms.

Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take

Dr. Vidya
