Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of viral infection is more likely.
So follow these steps for better symptomatic relief.
1. Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated.
2. Do steam inhalation and warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
3. Take levocetrizine and paracetamol combination twice daily.
4. Avoid hard to chew food.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these in 3-4 days.
Please let me know if you have any allergies.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
