Hi and thanks for your query.

Fro your symptoms, the suspicion of sore throat is high. It is commonly caused by streptococcal germ. It could also be pharyngitis but this is less likely in your case.

The main stay of treatment are antibiotics. Piin killers and drinking much fluids are accompanying measures to take care of pains and keep the body hydrated. The commonly prescribed drug is penicillin V. You may want to see your doctor who would evaluate you and explore this option further if indicated.
Please do this this serious because poorly treated, yo can go on to have cardiac and renal complications.
