Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your clinical history and I am suspecting that you are having acute pharyngitis which is giving you feverish feeling like- headache, body ache, and severe sore throat leading to painful deglutition resulting in excessive salivation.
As far as treatment is concern first of all you should go for these investigations.-
(1) Culture and sensitivity of throat swab.
(2) Blood- CBC, ESR, Widal test, M.P.
(4) Urine - R & M.
Till the reports of investigations comes you should take- Antibiotic, antipyretic-analgesic,and as soon as reports of investigations comes the treatment may be switch over accordingly.

With Regards.
