Brief Answer:
Probably tonsillitis, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to tonsillitis which is an inflammation and infection of the tonsil.

I recommend to take anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three tablets a day.

I also recommend taking antibiotics such as Augmentin 625 mg twice a day.

It is a prescription medication so you should consult your doctor before this treatment.

I suggest to use a throat spray for antibacterial properties.

I also suggest to drink liquids and gargle with salty water.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
