Sore throat, cough, painful to swallow. Taking medpanadol. Ideas?

I have a sore throat that particularly hurts when I swallow, I also cough out yellow mucus when I want to clear my throat, the cough is not persistent, it only occurs when I want to cough, however when I take medpanadol the pain subsides a little when swallowing for a few hours, I have had the pain for 4 days now. Any idea what it could be? Please help. Thank you

3.If the tonsillitis is caused by group A streptococus, then antibiotics are useful with penicillin or amoxicillin being primary choices
