Suggest treatment for sore throat and pain for the past five days while trying to swallow food
proper ENT check-up needed to be done...
At this outset, I'd suggest you do salt water (lukewarm) gargling three times a day...along with it do Betadine gargle in an alternative fashion for the next 3-4 days...For pain, use mild pain-killer such as Tab PARACETAMOL 650mg thrice daily after food for next 2-3 days...
Avoid dusty environments, over-crowded places...Use a facemask if at all you'd to go to the overcrowded places......Try to have simple foods (avoid sour/spicy foods for the time being, drink plenty of mineral water, have plenty of soup, broth, porridges etc).
Along with this, you should also get an ENT check-up done to assess the condition as there may be a need to start antibiotics therapy also.
Let me know if I can assist you further...
