No doubt it is sore throat cause by mainly either by bacteria or virus.As you have told muscles ache diagnosis goes more towards viral.But antibiotic should also be taken to prevent secondary infection.You may take Azithromycin 500mg OD for three days & take some NSAIDs like paracetamol or Ibuprofen for fever & body ache SOS.
