Brief Answer:
Gurgling with lukewarm water is the mainstay of treatment

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Sore throat can be caused either due to certain viruses like Epstein Barr Virus (infectious mononucleosis) or certain bacteria like Streptococcus (Strep throat). Irrespective of the cause, and irrespective of use of antibiotics, it usually takes 5-7 days for recovery. The other mentioned symptoms are related and all you have to do is to give gurgling with lukewarm water a few times a day while you give Tylenol or acetaminophen for fever or headache, as needed.

You can give the other mentioned medicines.

Let me know if I could help further.
