Brief Answer:
Possible infection of mouth and throat....

Detailed Answer:

Your clinical symptoms indicate an infection of your mouth and throat. If I were your caring doctor would advise to do the culture of the throat swab for bacteria and candida together with antibiogramme and mycogramme.

As the tests results will come after 3 days, I'd suggest to stop smoking (if you are a smoker) and take a good care of your mouth (wash with water and salt, mouth spray).

Hope it answered your question!
