Brief Answer:
An acute sore throat with sinusitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query,

From the complaints you are probably suffering from acute pharyngitis and sinusitis.

It would be better if you send me the picture of the throat so that I can suggest you better. Also, please get an X-ray paranasal sinuses done.

You may need to take antibiotics, tablet Cefixime 200 twice daily and take anti-allergic tablet Levocetirizine plus Pseudoephedrine twice daily.

Put Xylometazoline nasal drops three times a day.
Do Hexidine gargles and take Paracetamol (OTC) for fever.

All the medicines suggested by me will be available only on prescription.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
Thanks and regards
