Brief Answer:
sore throat. anti inflammatory medicines.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query.
In my opinion, you can be treated with hot saline gargle 3 to 4 times per day.
Avoid oily and cold items. Empirically you can take decongestant tablet twice daily for 3 to 5 days. Anti inflammatory medicines like paracetamol for throat pain.
Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.
