The pain which you have described can be due to a residual irritation of the area after the earlier sore throat. You need to do the regular warm saline gargles 3-4times/day for a couple of days so that the tissue is healthy again. If the pain persists that means the infection is still present and further antibiotic course has to be taken along with mild pain killers under the guidance of your attending doctor.
