I think you are suffering from throat infection. It could be either bacteria or virus.

Treatment taken so far seems appropriate. Aziwok is antibiotic. Sinarest helps to relieve runny nose/nasal congestion.

Along with these treatment, please do continue with Salt water gargles/avoid cold food & drinks. Taking medicines like Combiflam helps as well to relieve pain and inflammation in the throat.

I hope you recover soon.

Thanks for writing your query to us.
You seem to have developed upper respiratory infection. Continue salt water gargles twice a day.
Avoid pickles eating for few days till your throat infection is cured.
Take sinarest tablet three times a day.
you have not mentioned your age. Dose of Aziwok is 250mg twice a day. Since you taken it yesterday night continue it for 3 days.
Take rest, Dont exert. You should feel better with this treatment.
If still you are not feeling better than visit an ENT surgeon to look for any localised source of infection.
