Dear Sir On the basis of info provided it appears you have an acute infection of throat -- possibly bacterial. However there can be other causes too. I would advise you for a ENT consultation for a appropriate diagnosis You may require some blood test and sputum examination . If it comes out to be bacterial infection you will need a a course of antibiotics, analgesics and antiinflammatory drugs. I hope this answers your concerns. with regards Ravinder Sharma
