Brief Answer:
Take Tylenol Cold.

Detailed Answer:

you probably have a viral upper respiratory tract infection with pharyngitis/sore throat. I recommend you take Tylenol sinus 2tablets at most 4 times a day. Severe viral infections may take as much as 2-3weeks before full resolution. Exercise, good diet and fruits are very helpful with this.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. feel free to follow up with me if you want more clarifications and details.
