Brief Answer: Antiseptic gargles, PPI & mucolytic+bronchodilator Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. As you are having throat pain without any fever or cold, use of an antiseptic gargle solution should be enough for this. An analgesic with a proton pump inhibitor should also be taken for few days along with this. For cough, a mucolytic with bronchodilator should help along with steam inhalation. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
