For sore throat first take a course of antibiotic if not already taken.
If ur smoker stop smoking.
Gurgle 4 times daily with a betadine gurgle.
It can be due to post nasal drip for that take one month course of first generation H1 antihistaminic like hydroxizine hydrochlofide (25mg).
Consult a ENT specialist.

You are suffering from throat infection and by consulting your doctor you must take as antibiotic course.
If you are trying to get it cured at home you can try with Lukewarm water gargles and betadine solution gargles and take Multivitamins. If you are not cured in 1-2 days and fever start than you have to take as antibiotic course.
