Brief Answer:
better to get done throat swab culture

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

I am sorry that you are suffering with these symptoms now.

Could you please mention what antibiotics have been prescribed to you?

It is better to go for throat swab culture and sensitivity, and take antibiotics accordingly.

In the meanwhile, you should continue medicines for fever like Paracetamol, and do warm saline gargle or gargle with betadine mouth gargle thrice daily to get cured.

You will need at least 4 to 5 days for this to be gone.
