No fever, no chills, had slight coughing in the morning when he got up. Gave him warm water with honey. All was well all day long. The throat hurt started an hour back.

Brief Answer:
Detail Follows.

Detailed Answer:
In such scenario I would advise for symptomatic relief following:
1. To gargle with 2 tablets of disprin in XXXXXXX warm water.
2. To give him Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg single dose.
3. Give him plenty of warm fluids like soup, tea.
This would give him symptomatic relief till tomorrow morning when you can consult a doctor for his throat examination and further treatment.
In the morning when he would get up GE would have maximum pain. Don't panic that time. Give him same treatment in the morning and consult a doctor.
If you have any further query please ask me else close the discussion and rate it.
Stay Healthy.
