Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are suggestive of a throat infection
most likely a viral infection. Bacterial infections thought can't be ruled out completely.
Usually such viral infections resolve spontaneously in 3-5 days time. If they worsen, you need appropriate antibiotics.
I suggest the following treatment options currently:
1) For pain relief, anti-inflammatory, fever
reducing medications (acetaminophen
) will help you.
2) For soreness relief you can have salt water gargles (gargle with XXXXXXX warm salt water- one forth teaspoon of salt would be enough in half a cup of water) several times a day, lozenges and warm liquids. Gargling with warm water mixed with dissolvable aspirin
can give additional benefits.
3) Avoid Acidic Drinks, Spicy Food and Sour Substances.
4) Consume plenty of water and good fruits and vegetables.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
