hello and welcome to health care magic, I am Dr Sriram Nathan, an ENT surgeon and I will try to help you with your infection control Since you are having a severe sore throat, you may do these- - since you have already started antibiotics, you may continue them as advised - do salt water gargle three times a day for a week with warm water - add a pain killer like paracetamol and an antihistamine like levocetrizine in consultation with your doctor -do not scream or whisper and cause strain to your voice - take only warm food and fluids - hydrate yourself properly and do not take cold food - if the pain is severe then you may also consider antibiotic or pain killer injection in consultation with your doctor If you do not get better in a couple of days then you must get a throat swab and get back to me or any ENT doctor with the report wishing you a speedy recovery and if you have any more doubts I will be happy to answer them regards Dr Sriram Nathan
