hello and welcome to healthcare magic forum!

it might still be the flu symptoms with mild throat infection. where streptococcal bacteria lodge in the tonsils. so dont worry try a saline gargle and if possible take homeopathic medicine from your nearest homeopathic physician. it wont require surgery.

wishing you good health!
