ENT Specialist 's  Response
You seem to be suffering from an acute attack of tonsillitis, associated with acute rhinitis.
If this is the first ever episode, don't you worry. It simply needs an ENT consultation.
If it is occurring again and again, you might need to go for surgical treatment,i.e., tonsillectomy.
Start warm saline gargle and a decongestant nasal drops.
Take care.
