Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Throat pain is caused mainly due to viral infection, allergy to various materials or bacterial infection. Most of the viral infections are self limiting. You can try doing oral gargling mixing salt in warm water two times a day. Also, paracetamol can be used if you do not have major kidney or liver problems. If it does not get resolved in couple of days, you might need antibiotics and antiseptic oral gargle.
