thanks for writing to HCM..
you have acute pharyngitis with tonsillitis..
see your ENT surgeon for the diagnosis by clinical examination and laboratory examination..
you need to take antibiotics, analgesics, decongesants..
do salt water gargling and multivitamins may be started..
all the very best..
