Brief Answer:
It could be viral infection

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern about your sore throat, it could be due to viral infection.

I would suggest you to do salt water gargling frequently, avoid food on streets and oily foods.

You can start on antibiotic AZITHROMYCIN one tablet per day for 3 days, If it is associated with fever and cold, you can take antipyretic, PARACETAMOL and CETRIZINE.

Avoid stress and consume fluids,
drink lot of water as viral infection leads to severe dehydration.

Hope this information would help you.

Take care,
Dr. Soujanya
