Detailed Answer:
Hi...
Welcome back.
Thank you for follow up query.

Sore throat is a common condition. If you don't have any other problems, you need a course of macrolide group of antibiotics like Azithromycin tablets 500 mg once daily for 3 days. If symptoms still persists I would suggest you to consult your ENT doctor for detailed examination.

Feel free to ask further query.
Regards.
