You may do salt water gargling. You need to get examined to rule out tonsillar infection. Mostly it is a viral pharyngitis which should explain the body pain as well. It should subside within 7 days. Take plenty of water and fruits for Vitamin C. You may require antibiotics since you have laryngitis, but for now steam inhalation will provide relief. kindly visit your ENT Doctor for specific treatment based on your problems.
