Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your History Suggests, Tonsillitis. Kindly get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist as you will require antibiotics and analgesics. Kindly don't panic as it is a common condition. Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils, two oval shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat, one tonsil on each side. Tonsillitis is most often caused by a common cold virus, but other viral and bacterial infections can also be the cause. In addition to Medications, you will require Home care remedies. Get adequate rest, Drink plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent dehydration. Warm liquids like tea or warm water with honey and cold treats like ice pops can soothe your sore throat. Do salt water gargles several times as day. If you smoke, QUIT.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
